The three new, ship-to-shore cranes were delivered to Crowley Puerto Rico Services’ Isla Grande Terminal in San Juan on Wednesday.

The cranes are a key element of the USD 130 million Crowley is investing in infrastructure improvements to its Isla Grande Terminal.

“With the delivery of these state-of-the-art cranes, we are taking another step toward the transformation of our terminal into the most modern and efficient port facility on the island,” said John Hourihan Jr., Crowley’s senior vice president and general manager, Puerto Rico services.

“These cranes will help to ensure the terminal operates safely and efficiently, with the fastest discharge times on the island.”

The cranes, which will be offloaded and positioned on the pier over the next several days, each have a capacity of 65 long tons and measure approximately 65 meters tall, with an outreach of 40 meters.

The new cranes were built by Liebherr Container Cranes, part of the Liebherr Group.
In addition to the cranes, the company on Monday launched El Coqui, the first of two new, liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered, Commitment Class ships being built by VT Halter Marine in Pascagoula, Miss.

After several more months of topside work, El Coquí is expected to begin service during the second half of 2017, and its sister ship, Taíno, is due to commence service in the first half of 2018.
