Jensen Maritime Consultants , Crowley Maritime's Seattle-based naval architecture and marine engineering company, has been awarded a new construction management contract for four new 330,000-barrel, Jones Act product tankers, being built by Aker Philadelphia Shipyard Inc.

With construction scheduled to begin in January, Jensen is already establishing on-site offices and personnel at the Philadelphia shipyard to ensure strong working relationships with Aker staff and a seamless construction and delivery program. Delivery of the new veteran class tankers is expected in 2015 and 2016.

The project is the second major construction management project that Jensen has signed since it officially announced the launch of its new, in-house construction management program. The team first managed the construction of two new fireboats for the Port of Long Beach. But long before the program was formally established, Jensen construction management professionals were already at work managing multiple high-profile projects, including the construction and deliveries of all four Crowley high-bollard-pull ocean class tugboats and 17 articulated tug-barges (ATBs).

Given the growth in Jensen’s construction management business, the company has promoted Ray Martus to vice president of construction management reporting to Jensen Vice President Johan Sperling. Most recently Martus was director, new construction, for Jensen. In his new role, Martus will oversee Jensen’s construction management division, which brings together the unique skills of both Crowley and Jensen throughout the entire lifecycle of design and construction. He will remain domiciled in Jacksonville.

“The talent that Ray brings to this position is incredible,” explained Sperling. “Customers who engage Jensen for construction management services gain not only project oversight, but also our decades of shipyard knowledge – brought primarily by Ray and his team. These consultation services, now fully under his supervision, ensure that a vessel is built to a customer’s specifications while controlling the cost and the schedule. Jensen is one of the few naval architecture and marine engineering firms that can bridge the gap between the client and shipyard. The resulting effect is higher efficiency and more satisfactory results for all involved.”
