Crowley Works to Clear the Air in the Puerto Rico/Caribbean Trade

In 2007, Crowley Maritime Corporation continued its dedication to a safe, clean environment by investing in engine modifications on its tugboats dedicated to the Puerto Rico/Caribbean liner service and on its four tugs chartered to Trailer Bridge for their Puerto Rico barge service.

Crowley partnered with General Electric, Rolls Royce, Marine Systems and Interstate Diesel to reduce exhaust, cut engine lubricating oil consumption and save fuel. Crowley makes four to five trips from the United States to Puerto Rico, which allowed for ample opportunity and testing of the engine modifications that led to lower emissions and increased performance. 

"We are always looking for more efficient and cleaner ways to run our engines," said Rob Grune, senior vice president and general manager, Puerto Rico/ Caribbean services. "We have an extremely talented engineering department that  has a genuine interest in maintaining our high performance standards. while optimizing equipment for environmental preservation."
