ExaktAlign AB contributes to Crowley’s new builds ‘El Coqui’ and ‘Taino’
ExaktAlign AB was asked by Crowley to be part of a team of specialists performing construction supervision on the newbuildings numbers 135 (El Coquí) and 136 (Taino) at VT-Halter Marine Inc., in Pascagoula, Mississippi in the United States.
The ships, which run on liquefied natural gas (LNG), are state of the art ConRo (combination container – roll on, roll off) vessels that will sail in the trade between Jacksonville, Florida and Puerto Rico. These are the first ships of their kind to run on LNG fuel, which contributes to significantly cleaner exhaust emissions. The propulsion of each ship is provided by a MAN 8S70ME main engine, which is driving a Wärtsilä Fixed Pitch Propeller.
ExaktAlign’ s was present in the shipyard during the installation phase of the propulsion machinery to ensure each engine was installed properly.
The first vessel – El Coquí – successfully completed her sea trials and made her maiden voyage for Crowley at the end of July.
