JUNE 21, 2016) ­– Ninety-six Crowley Maritime Corporation owned or managed vessels recently received the Chamber of Shipping of America (CSA)'s annual Jones F. Devlin Awards in recognition of their outstanding safety records in 2015. Each year the CSA issues Devlin Award certificates to manned merchant vessels that have operated for two or more years without incurring a Lost Time Injury (LTI), specifically highlighting the skills and dedication of the crewmembers responsible for safe vessel operations.

Crowley's 2015 Devlin Award vessels have collectively achieved a] total of 639 years of service without an LTI — and 23 have gone without incident for 10 or more consecutive years, including : Valdez Star (25 years) and Gus E, MV Chief, MV Guide and Roger G, (17 years each) MV Aku, MV Veteren, MV Vigilant and Tug Nanuq, (16 years each) and Cape Edmont (15 years0. Crowley's vessels have earned Devlin Awards annually since 2005.

Additionally, the Crowley-managed, USNS Impeccable (T-AGOS 23) ­– a Military Sealift Command (MSC) Impeccable class, ocean surveillance ship - was given a Citation of Merit for heroically rescuing 11 fishermen struggling to stay afloat on a sinking vessel that had been adrift for five days in the South China Sea.  Capt. Seven Gilkey, master, USNS Invincible and T-AGOS / T-AGM Port Captain and Program Manager, Capt. Jonathan "JC" Christian, accepted the award on behalf of USNS Impeccable, which is currently at sea, from Rear Admiral David Callahan, Commander, US. Coast Guard District eight.
 
"We have been holding these annual award ceremonies since 1958," said Kathy Metcalf, CSA President. "This was the 58th anniversary of the program. For that initial year, we honored six vessels having a total of twelve years operation with no lost-time incidents. This year, awards were conferred on 1522 vessels that operated 10,084 years without a lost-time incident. This extraordinary record is directly attributable to the professionalism of our seafarers and the dedication of shore-based company personnel to safe operation."


"Safety is at the top of Crowley's core values and strategic goals. The vessels receiving Devlin Awards exemplify this Crowley core value, because they live it every day – for themselves, their families and Crowley," said Crowley's Mike Golonka, vice president, government services.
