Crowley Maritime Corp.’s liquefied natural gas services group has recently been awarded a contract to supply Alaska LNG from the Titan Point Mackenzie plant to Alaska Power & Telephone Co.’s Tok power plant.
The contract, executed through subsidiary Crowley LNG Alaska, includes both the product supply and technical services required to successfully leverage the benefits of LNG at the Tok power plant. With Crowley’s support, Alaska Power & Telephone will expand environmental sustainability efforts by developing the capability to use LNG to supplement diesel-based power generation. Development of this dual fuel capability is key to providing cleaner, more affordable energy to ratepayers.
Crowley will facilitate the transportation of LNG in a safe and reliable manner from liquefaction facilities in Alaska to the plant in tank trailers authorized by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Once at the plant, the LNG will be re-gasified and piped to a dual fuel kit supplied by ECO/AFS for power consumption.
“Crowley is extremely pleased to be a vital fuel supplier to Alaska Power & Telephone,” said Matthew Sievert, director, Crowley LNG business development. “We have been working side by side with Alaska Power & Telephone for over a year now, assisting with the engineering and design to utilize natural gas and to carry out the logistics necessary to accommodate LNG delivery to the Tok plant. We want to thank Bob Grimm, president of Alaska Power & Telephone, and his staff for having confidence in our services as they develop an innovative fuels portfolio that includes LNG, a cost-effective, safe, reliable and environmentally friendly fuel.”
At AP&T’s Tok plant, ECO/AFS will install its bi-fuel technology to support LNG usage in the rural Alaska community.
