Crowley's Construction Operations In Alaska Are Reorganized

Crowley Martime Corporation has restructured its Alaskan construction operations to concentrate on marine and highly specialized shoreside projects, according to a recent announcement by Leo L. Collar, CMC executive vice president, San Francisco. The move will make available to operators on Alaska's North Slope a large fleet of road maintenance equipment.

Crowley Constructors, Inc., longtime Crowley subsidiary headquartered in Long Beach, Calif., will actively pursue selected Alaskan construction projects within its scope of interest. Crowley Constructors recently has been involved in several marine construction projects in Alaska, and has developed during 33 years of operation a full range of specialized and marine construction capabilities that include dredging, piledriving, building marine structures, and installing underwater pipelines. The company owns and operates several derrick barges with lift capacities of up to 350 tons each, bottom-dump barges for dredge-spoil operation, tugboats, and other service vessels.

Crowley Maritime Corporation is an international marine transportation firm with interests in construction, trucking, marine salvage, and environmental protection services.
