The Crowley Maritime Corp. announced in May that an additional $21 million investment has been assigned for improvements and upgrades at its Isla Grande port terminal in San Juan, Puerto Rico in preparation for the arrival of its LNG-powered ConRos in 2017. The investment comes in the form of a construction contract awarded to Del Valle Group, S.P. of Toa Baja, Puerto Rico. The construction will involve the expansion of the terminal’s capacity for handling refrigerated containers, paving 15 new acres of land to accommodate container stacking, installing a new electrical substation to power three ship-to-shore gantry cranes, the construction of a new seven-lane terminal exit, and the installation of hardware required for a new terminal operating software system. The contract is the third awarded in relation with Crowley’s investment in its Isla Grande terminal in preparation for the arrival next year of the first of Crowley’s two new liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered, Commitment Class ships now under construction in Pascagoula, Mississippi.
