This facility was built to the highest standards by
the U.S. Navy and at one time employed 1,000
workers. It was located strategically well inside
the protected waters of the Port of San Juan,
which has been a strategic Caribbean port for
cruise ships, container vessels and the military
(since the 1500's). San Juan is also a major international airline hub which allows us to bring in expertise and parts and supplies with no duty from U.S. mainland.
