Alaska Selects Crowley to Monitor Cruise Ships

February 27, 2008

Crowley will implement and administer the State of Alaska's Ocean Ranger Program, beginning with the 2008 cruise ship season. The State of Alaska's Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) awarded the contract to Crowley Monday.

The contract, valued at up to $4 million per fiscal year, directs Crowley to recruit, hire, train, and organize the logistics of placing up to 35 Ocean Rangers on board cruise ships this season to monitor their wastewater discharges and compliance with other pollution requirements for the state. Ocean Rangers are required as part of a new law adopted by the citizens of Alaska - the Alaska Cruise Ship Initiative- in 2006.

Crowley is accepting resumes from qualified, licensed third assistant engineers or higher rating. Preference will be given to qualified Alaska residents and applicants must either be existing AMO members or make application for membership prior to assignment. To work as an Ocean Ranger, candidates will be required to attend and complete a mandatory certification program. In addition to passing both a knowledge based and practical proficiency exam, candidates must complete on-the-job training. Crowley has selected Faststream Recruitment Inc., one of the worlds largest Maritime Recruiters, as its recruitment partner for this contract. Faststream's experience in the cruise industry will help identify qualified candidates with the necessary technical and social skills for this challenging environment . Resumes should be sent to Roy Sunden at the Faststream office: oceanranger@faststream.us or rsunden@faststream.us.
