Coming Soon: Revolutionary LNG-Powered ConRo Ships for U.S. - Puerto Rico Trade
Commitment Class ConRo Ships
Introducing Crowley’s newest Commitment Class ConRo ships, some of the first liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered, combination container and Roll-On/Roll-Off (ConRo) ships in the world, designed especially for service between the United States and Puerto Rico.
The Commitment Class ConRos, which will be named El Coquí and Taíno, are designed from the keel up to meet the needs of Crowley’s customers. By making use of clean LNG as their primary fuel, the ships will offer a 38% reduction in CO2 emissions per container as compared with existing fossil fuels.
Scheduled for delivery in the second and fourth quarter 2017, El Coquí and Taíno represent the next chapter in the company’s distinguished, award-winning service for the people of Puerto Rico. Built in the U.S. and operated in the Jones Act trade, these new Crowley ships will offer optimal performance and safety while setting new standards for environmentally responsible shipping.
