Crowley has unveiled the first renderings and names of its four new dual-fuel LNG-powered containerships: Quetzal, Copan, Tiscapa, and Torogoz. Ordered in 2022 from Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in South Korea, the 1,400 TEU vessels are expected to be delivered in 2025. Chartered from Singapore’s Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS), these ships will service Crowley’s US-Central America route, enhancing connectivity to Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Designed with 300 refrigerated unit plugs, these Avance-class vessels draw inspiration from Central America’s national birds, archaeological sites, and lakes for their names. Featuring advanced ME-GI engines by MAN Energy Solutions, these ships promise significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and virtually eliminate methane slippage, emphasizing Crowley’s commitment to sustainable maritime operations.
