| USA, Jacksonville FL

Crowley Maritime Corporation has signed construction contracts with Aker Philadelphia Shipyard Inc. (APSI) to build up to eight product tankers for delivery between 2015 and the end of 2017. The new 50,000 DWT product tankers are based on a proven Hyundai Mipo Dockyards (HMD) design which incorporates numerous fuel efficiency features, flexible cargo capability, and the latest regulatory requirements. The vessels will be constructed with consideration for the use of LNG for propulsion in the future.
