Crowley Partners with GTI Collaborative for LNG Training at JaxPort

[ September 22, 2015   //   ]

Crowley Maritime Corp. recently participated as one of several Gas Technology Institute (GTI) funding collaborators on September 21 to bring liquefied natural gas (LNG) awareness training to 150 stakeholders and first responders in Jacksonville. GTI, in conjunction with the Florida State College at Jacksonville Fire Academy of the South (FAS), developed the first-of-its-kind training specifically for Port of Jacksonville area stakeholders including Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Departments, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Jacksonville and area law enforcement.
The Jacksonville Marine Transportation Exchange (JMTX) – the maritime trade organization that coordinates the safe, secure and environmentally responsible management of the marine transportation system within the Port of Jacksonville – worked closely with U.S. Coast Guard Sector Jacksonville to seek out potential members of the funding collaborative and garner support from representatives of the local Area Contingency Planning (ACP) community. Since Crowley currently supplies LNG to Puerto Rico via barge and will take delivery of two container – Roll-On/Roll-Off (ConRo) ships in 2017, the company was proactive in participating in this training endeavor.
