Everett awards construction contracts

The port of Everett has awarded approximately USD25 million in construction contracts for the second phase of its south terminal modernisation project.

The first phase of the modernisation project strengthened 140 ft (42.6 m) of the dock structure in 2015. The USD36 million second phase will strengthen the remaining 560 ft (170.7 m) of the 700 ft (213.4 m) dock structure and make electrical upgrades at the wharf.

"Completing critical infrastructure upgrades like this will better position the port and its facilities to handle the larger vessels now calling at Everett and accommodate the next generation of over-dimensional cargo on the horizon, including aerospace parts for the new 777X," said Glen Bachman, port of Everett commission president.

The south terminal facility is the largest of the port's docks by land footprint; however, in its current state, it can only accommodate 500 lbs per sq ft (2.44 tonnes per sq m). Modern cargo operations require a minimum of 1,000 lbs per sq ft (4.88 tonnes per sq m), says Everett.

Construction is scheduled to begin in April 2018 and is expected to be complete in December 2019.
