US-based Crowley Maritime’s second LNG-powered combination container/roll-on roll-off ConRo ship Taíno, completed its maiden voyage to Puerto Rico.

Taíno, which departed January 8 from its mainland homeport of Jacksonville, Florida, is the second of two ConRo vessels constructed for Crowley.

The first ship of the pair, El Coquí, began its service in July 2018, Crowley noted in its statement.

The ships, built specifically for the Puerto Rico trade, are 219.5 meters (720 feet), 26,500 deadweight tons (DWT), and can transport up to 2,400 twenty-foot-equivalent container units (TEUs).

Both vessels are operated with U.S. crews by Crowley’s global ship management group under Crowley Shipping.

The vessels were constructed by VT Halter Marine at its Pascagoula, Mississippi, shipyard, with construction management provided by Crowley Solutions.

Modernizations by Crowley include the Commitment class vessels along with investments at Crowley’s Isla Grande terminal in San Juan, including three new shore gantry cranes, the first to be delivered in Puerto Rico in 50 years; a new 900-foot pier; container handling equipment; and efficiency improvements.

At JAXPORT, a new shoreside LNG fuel depot operated by Eagle LNG Partners supplies the cleaner, efficient fuel powering the ships.
