Prior to delivery on Dec. 19, 2018, Crowley and the ship’s crew successfully carried out a sea trial of Taíno – the company’s second of two of the world’s first combination container/roll on-roll off (ConRo) ships powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) – with shipbuilder VT Halter Marine Inc., of Pascagoula, Miss., in preparation for her upcoming maiden voyage from Jacksonville, Fla., (JAXPORT) to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The two LNG-powered vessels are part of Crowley’s major modernization of the Puerto Rico-U.S. mainland trade that have added velocity to the island’s supply chain.
