Crowley Marine Services, Inc. is a subsidiary company of Crowley Maritime Corporation that was organized for the purpose of developing creative engineering, design, and marine transportation solutions to support the planning, construction and execution of marine and offshore projects. Crowley’s competencies include naval architecture, marine engineering, project services, an owned and managed fleet of more than 200 vessels, as well as offshore engineering. Crowley’s in-house naval architecture firm, Jensen Maritime, is a full-service naval architecture firm, providing solutions from concept design all the way through vessel delivery.
Our diverse range of project experience involves an equally wide range of clients, from major oil companies to small commercial operators located throughout the world, where creative approach and management disciplines are utilized for project success.
Crowley’s Offshore Engineering team offers innovative marine engineering and operational solutions throughout the life cycle of all our projects. Our solutions include feasibility studies, development of execution plans with supporting engineering, subcontractor management and project execution. Our people ensure successful project execution through high-quality engineering in every project we perform. Areas of expertise include offshore oil and gas, offshore renewables, marine transportation and salvage engineering support.
Crowley offers a wide range of Project Management services to support our customers, starting with the early stages of project development and culminating in the delivery of world-class marine assets that safely and reliably fulfill their mission for decades. Some of the services we offer include: New Vessel Construction, Project Management and Owner’s Representation, and Contract Management.
Production engineering takes functional design to the next level by incorporating design information into a full-size 3D model. Our team combines all the details of the structural,electrical, mechanical and HVAC systems of the vessel into one comprehensive model of your project. The result is a virtual vessel that can be inspected early in the design process for safety,maintainability and constructability. Additionally, by previewing the vessel in 3D, project stakeholders have the unique opportunity to confirm the vessel’s layout, maintenance envelopes and operational access.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) offers the best assurance after physical model testing and full scale trials that a ship will make speed.Once a simulation is set up, CFD can readily be applied to a large number of potential designs and modifications, easily outperforming tow tank studies in possible scope and cost.
We use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Boundary Element Method (BEM) radiation diffraction methods to tackle a range of offshore engineering problems.By validating hand calculations, advanced numerical analysis saves money by ensuring safe and cost effective design approaches to meeting requirements and mitigating risk.
