Crowley steps up projects presence

Crowley steps up projects presence

   Crowley Maritime Corp. has created a Project Solutions group that bundles company-wide capabilities and assets with project management skills to provide complete “turnkey” marine services.
   The Houston-based group is led by Craig Tornga, vice president. Other senior team members are Michael G. Johnson, vice president of the project management office; Dorine Tessier, vice president of the project support office; Greg Detiveaux, vice president of business development; and Dan Crosby, director of finance.
   “Over the years, our work with upstream energy customers, whether their projects are offshore or onshore in remote locations, has typically taken us from a defined role to one of increased project management scope as we demonstrate our competence and professionalism,” said Tom Crowley, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Crowley Maritime. “Putting some formal structure around our project management capabilities with talented people and processes will allow us to help customers transform ambiguous projects into ones that are focused, productive and deliver tangible results.”
   The Project Solutions portfolio of company-wide services include marine project management; heavy lift barge transportation; ocean towing; project concept studies; engineering management; emergency response; international container, breakbulk and petroleum shipping; full-service logistics, including specialized project cargo freight forwarding from subsidiary Jarvis International Freight; naval architecture, marine engineering, vessel design and construction from subsidiary Jensen Maritime; operational management; marine salvage, wreck removal and emergency response from subsidiary TITAN Salvage; and harbor ship assist and tanker escort.
   Additionally, Project Solutions has access to a variety of Crowley-owned assets and equipment, including a diverse fleet of high-horsepower tugs and large deck barges. The company’s 455 Series deck barges (400 feet by 105 feet by 25 feet) provide capacity and deck strength needed to accommodate large drilling and production units used for deepwater offshore energy exploration and development. Crowley also operates a fleet of shallow-draft tugs and barges in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, in support of the oil and gas industry in the Arctic. Crowley is building four Ocean Class tugboats with 10,880 BHP, which are scheduled to be in service by 2012.
