Crowley Maritime’s new LNG-fueled container/roll on-roll off ship El Coquí delivered its first cargo from Jacksonville, Florida, to the company’ Isla Grande Terminal in San Juan.  

El Coquí, one of the world’s first ConRos powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG), departed Jacksonville on Friday night and arrived in San Juan Monday, Crowley said in a statement.

The ship has a cruising speed of 22 knots and can carry about 2,400 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) of containers in a wide range of sizes and types – including 53-foot by 102-inch-wide, high-capacity containers and refrigerated containers.

“Increasing supply chain velocity while reducing customers’ landed costs was the core reason for our $550 million investment in this important service,” said Tom Crowley, company chairman and CEO.

Besides full-loads of dry cargo containers, the inaugural cargo also included various equipment and automobiles, trucks and SUVs, as well as refrigerated ‘reefer’ containers for produce, Crowley said adding that the delivery is another in the series of milestones the company has reached in Puerto Rico.
