Siem Car Carriers and Eagle LNG collaborated on an LNG fuel delivery to the pure car truck carrier (PCTC) Siem Aristotle earlier this month, marking Eagle LNG’s largest bunkering operation to date at JAXPORT in Jacksonville, Florida.
In a statement sent to Bunkerspot, Eagle LNG highlighted that the increase in fuel supply volume was made possible because of the company’s recent doubling of production at its Maxville LNG Facility and the addition of refuelling capacity at its Talleyrand LNG Bunker Station at JAXPORT.
The Siem Aristotle is one of two PCTC LNG vessels in the Siem fleet. The Siem Confucius and Siem Aristotle are said to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 25%, nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 30%, particulate matter by up to 60% and sulphur oxide emissions by up to 100%.
As previously reported, in February 2022, Eagle LNG first refuelled the 7,500 vehicle capacity Siem Aristotle from its Talleyrand LNG Bunker station. It was the first ship of its size that the company had refuelled from the bunkering facility.
