About Us

Polaris New Energy

Polaris New Energy was established to meet the growing supply needs for liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a maritime transportation fuel source. Utilizing owned assets, Polaris aims to provide safe and reliable transportation and distribution of LNG throughout the coastal United States.

Polaris New Energy (PNE) owns and operates the 5,500 CBM LNG Articulated Tug & Barge Unit, the “Clean Canaveral/Polaris”, from Jacksonville Florida.  The organization also markets the 2,200 CBM LNG Barge the “Clean Jacksonville” which has been servicing Jacksonville for several years.  PNE is currently constructing a sister vessel to the Clean Canaveral at Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding to be delivered by the end of 2023. This construction agreement also comes with options to construct additional vessels and grow PNE’s fleet of LNG bunker vessels.  The new vessels will either operate on the East Coast of the United States or in the Gulf of Mexico where we are seeing increasing demand for LNG bunkering.

LNG is a product of the liquefaction of natural gas. A refrigerated cycle transforms natural gas into a liquid by cooling the gas to under -160*C. This transformation into a liquid allows for large quantities of LNG to be stored and transported by trucks and maritime vessels in a much more efficient manner.

What is “LNG”?

Liquified Natural Gas, or “LNG”, is natural gas (predominantly methane) that has been cooled down to liquid form for safe and efficient transportation. Natural gas is cooled to -162˚ C though a refrigeration process. This process transforms the gas into a liquid, reducing its volume to approximately 1/600 of its original size. LNG is an established fuel for the global maritime transportation industry that is becoming heavily adopted in the United States.
