El Coquí set to enter service

Crowley Maritime has taken delivery of El Coquí, which it says is one of the world’s first con-ro vessels powered by LNG, from shipbuilder VT Halter Marine.

El Coquí is the first of two Commitment Class, LNG-powered con-ro vessels being built for Crowley’s shipping and logistics services between Jacksonville, Florida and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The second vessel in the series, Taíno, was launched in December 2017, as HLPFI reported here, and is scheduled to enter service later this year.

Operated by Crowley’s global ship management group, El Coquí will make its maiden voyage to San Juan later this month from the port of Jacksonville (Jaxport).

The new Crowley vessels, built specifically for the Puerto Rico trade, measure 219.5 m in length and will be able to transport up to 2,400 teu as well as a mix of about 400 cars and larger vehicles in the enclosed, weather-tight ro-ro decks.
