Crowley praises Humboldt marine terminal grant


Crowley, a U.S.-owned and operated maritime, energy, and logistics solutions company, praised the announcement of a nearly-$8.7 million federal grant to secure funding for the Humboldt Heavy Lift Marine Terminal for offshore wind. This grant provides funds to progress the project to “shovel ready” status including design and permitting preparation costs.

“With the help of the Port Infrastructure Development Program grant secured by the Humboldt Bay Harbor District, Crowley looks forward to advancing our collaboration in the development of the Humboldt Heavy Lift Marine Terminal in close collaboration with the Harbor District, County, Tribal Nations, and other key organizations and stakeholders,” said Bob Karl, senior vice president and general manager, Crowley Wind Services. “We also thank U.S. Rep. Jared Huffman for his support of the project.

We are thrilled to have supported the Harbor District in the grant process. This marks another milestone in our path toward giving the county, state, and the nation a new source of energy that respects the environment and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. We take the great responsibility of delivering sustainable and positive economic impact for this community to heart.”

Crowley serves commercial and government sectors with $3.4 billion in annual revenues, more than 170 vessels mostly in the Jones Act fleet and approximately 7,000 employees around the world — employing more U.S. mariners than any other company. Crowley serves customers in 36 nations and island territories through five business units: Crowley Logistics, Crowley Shipping, Crowley Government Solutions, Crowley Wind Services, and Crowley Fuels.
