Eagle LNG solution picked for Barbuda
Eagle LNG Partners has signed a long-term deal with Barbuda Ocean Club in Barbuda, West Indies, for the use of natural gas for power generation.
Eagle LNG will provide a turn-key solution for Barbuda Ocean Club, which includes U.S. sourced natural gas, storm-resilient equipment as well as investment in power generation.
The company will also provide on-island storage and regasification assuring natural gas for extended periods should weather inhibit deliveries.
Since early 2018, Eagle LNG has loaded hundreds of ISO and trailers loads from their Maxville LNG facility for Crowley Maritime and other clients.
Barbuda Ocean Club, a private resort and community, part of the US-based real estate developer Discovery Land Company, has committed to helping the island rebuild while protecting its natural environment.
The Coco Point neighborhood represents the initial phase of development for Barbuda Ocean Club. By transitioning to U.S. natural gas for power generation, Barbuda Ocean Club is committing to low-carbon technology while also reducing local air emissions on the island of Barbuda.
Transitioning to natural gas-driven generation also enables Barbuda Ocean Club to work with Eagle LNG to introduce further low carbon solutions including renewable generation to enable sustainable growth of the development in Barbuda.
