Crowley commits to Puerto Rico

May 12 - Crowley Puerto Rico Services will execute a USD48.5 million construction contract for a new pier at its Isla Grande Terminal in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The contract includes the development of a new 900 ft (274 m) long by 114 ft (34 m) wide concrete pier and all associated dredging needed to accommodate Crowley's two new LNG-powered Commitment Class ships. Crowley's terminal expansion plans also include the installation of three new ship-to-shore container gantry cranes, which will be supplied under a separate contract.

Now that construction and lease contracts have been signed, Crowley is completing the acquisition of the necessary permits, including those from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and other local agencies, which will allow the company to break ground in the coming months. 

Construction is expected to be complete in April 2017, in advance of the inaugural call of the first new Commitment Class ship, El Coqui.
