Jensen Maritime to Manage Construction of 4 New Jones Act Tankers
Jensen Maritime Consultants, Crowley Maritime Corp.’s Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering company, announced that the company has been awarded a new construction management contract for four new 330,000-barrel, Jones Act product tankers, being built by Aker Philadelphia Shipyard Inc. (APSI), for Crowley. With construction scheduled to begin in January, Jensen is already establishing on-site offices and personnel at the Philadelphia shipyard to ensure strong working relationships with Aker staff and a seamless construction and delivery program. Delivery of the new veteran class tankers is expected in 2015 and 2016.
The project is the second major construction management project that Jensen has signed since it officially announced the launch of its new, in-house construction management program. The team first managed the construction of two new fireboats for the Port of Long Beach. But long before the program was formally established, Jensen construction management professionals were already at work managing multiple high-profile projects, including the construction and deliveries of all four Crowley high-bollard-pull ocean class tugboats and 17 articulated tug-barges (ATBs).
