The JAX Chamber has joined together with Gladstein, Neandross & Associates, and conference organizers of the Natural Gas for High Horsepower (HHP) Summit, to bring the annual event to Jacksonville, Florida. The HHP Summit serves as a meeting place of high horsepower industry stakeholders—including marine, mining, rail, and stationary power generation sectors — to discuss the opportunities and challenges offered by natural gas in energy-intensive applications. In recent years, Jacksonville has become the epicenter of North American natural gas market development for these same applications.
“Jacksonville is committed to supporting the burgeoning natural gas industry, which drives economic development, energy security and improves environmental sustainability,” JAX Chamber’s VP of Industry & Government Affairs, Chris Quinn said.
The four-day event will provide attendees insight into dozens of marine, rail, mining, remote power generation, on-road trucking, and infrastructure projects through a series of plenaries, breakouts, and technical workshops. This year’s attendees will also have access to off-site tours to local Jacksonville projects, including the Eagle LNG Maxville Plant, Crowley LNG Bunker Terminal, JAX LNG Plant, TOTE LNG Vessel, Florida East Coast Rail LNG locomotives and tender fueling operations, Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) CNG operation, and UPS LNG trucks and large-scale LNG refueling station.
The HHP Summit expo hall will offer hands-on access to a wide range of natural gas engines, equipment and technology designed for high horsepower applications.
