Crowley begins pier construction for LNG-powered ships

Jacksonville-based Crowley informed that construction works started at the US$48.5 million pier at Isla Grande terminal in San Juan, Puerto Rico to accommodate its new LNG-fueled vessels. 

The project includes the development of a new 900-foot-long, 114-foot-wide concrete pier and all associated dredging needed to accommodate Crowley’s two new LNG-powered, Commitment Class ships to be named El Coquí and Taíno, which are scheduled for delivery in 2017, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

Crowley’s terminal expansion also includes the installation of three new ship-to-shore container gantry cranes, which will be supplied under a separate contract.

The construction contract is being executed by L.P.C. & D., of Las Piedras, Puerto Rico, which began driving the first piles for the pier last week.

In all, Crowley is investing about $500 million in its Puerto Rico service with the construction of two new ships, the new pier, three new container cranes, new truck access gates, reefer plugs, new containers and container handling equipment, it added.
