Crowley continues Puerto Rican investment

June 1 - Crowley Puerto Rico Services is going ahead with an additional USD21 million construction contract for improvements and upgrades at its Isla Grande port terminal in San Juan.

The contract was awarded to Del Valle Group of Puerto Rico, and includes expanding the terminal's capacity for handling refrigerated goods; paving 15 acres (6 ha) of land to accommodate container stacking; installing a new electrical substation; constructing a new seven-lane terminal exit gate; and installing hardware required for a new terminal operating software system.

This is latest in a series of investments that Crowley says will make its terminal and shipping operations the most modern and efficient in Puerto Rico, in preparation for the arrival of Crowley's new LNG-powered Commitment Class ships, which will serve in the Puerto Rico/Caribbean trade.
