Crowley’s Newest LNG-Fueled ConRo Ship, Taíno, Launched at VT Halter Marine

VT Halter Marine has launched Crowley Maritime Corp.’s second Commitment Class ship, Taíno , one of the world’s first combination container/roll on-roll off (ConRo) ships powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG). Video of the ship being transferred from land to water Monday can be viewed here [ link to come].

The launch of the ship in Pascagoula, Miss., marks the latest achievement in Crowley’s transformation and modernization of its shipping and logistics services between Jacksonville, Fla., and San Juan, Puerto Rico. The new ships, port terminal improvements and technology upgrades underway are all designed to improve the overall velocity of the customers’ supply chains and speed products to retail shelves.

New LNG-Powered Ships Progress in Shipyard as Puerto Rico relief arrives on island

While Crowley teams have been working around the clock to deliver commercial and government relief supplies to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, including 3,684 Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and 9,116 commercial loads to date, Crowley’s vessel construction management group has been focused on completing the company’s two new LNG-fueled "ConRo" combination Roll-on/Roll-off ships for the trade.

Finishing touches are being made to El Coquí at the VT Halter Marine shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss., as she moves into the initial phases of testing and commissioning

9 Smart Terminal Upgrades that Give Crowley’s Shipping Operations an Edge in Puerto Rico

It’s no secret that Crowley is making infrastructure improvements to its Isla Grande Terminal as part of a $550 million investment in the company’s Puerto Rico services. Of importance are three ship-to-shore container cranes, which will be used to load and unload containerized cargo carried aboard Crowley’s two new, Commitment Class combination container/Roll-On Roll-Off (ConRo) ships, powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG). The 65-meters tall Liebherr container cranes are some of the most technically advanced, ship-to-shore gantries in operation nearly anywhere today. 

What still may be a secret to you, however, is how Crowley can offer maximum container loading and unloading efficiency, while turning cargo for customers faster than other carriers. The reason is due in large part to these nine smart innovations Crowley is incorporating in the terminal upgrades:

Crowley's Construction Management Team Drives Efficient, Quality Build-Out at Shipyard

A key to Crowley’s success currently building its Commitment Class ships powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) is the company’s construction management team. Lead by manager Patrick Sperry, they are using the company’s deep well of expertise and experience delivering high performing ships, this time on Crowley’s own two combination container/Roll-On Roll-Off vessels being built at VT Halter Marine.

Crowley Initiates Cargo Operations in Puerto Rico Using New Container Cranes and Pier

In late June, Crowley celebrated the arrival of the first vessel to call at its newly constructed pier at Isla Grande in Puerto Rico – the Crowley-towed container barge 455-4. The occasion allowed Crowley to put its three new 
container cranes and equipment to work for the very first time, and both operators and cranes performed well.
