Tampa Bay agrees new berth

December 21 - The board of commissioners of Port Tampa Bay has agreed to award a construction contract to GLF Construction Company to build a second new cargo berth at Port Redwing (Berth 302).

According to the Florida port, the new berth - a USD14.5 million investment - will enhance the current capacity for bulk and breakbulk operations at Port Redwing and is in line with the port's master plan, that was recently unveiled at the port's new multipurpose East Port wharf.

The investment in Berth 302 will combine port funds with Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) funds necessary for the construction, dredging and upland improvements planned.

Port Tampa Bay's board of commissioners also agreed to an amended lease agreement with stevedore and terminal operating company Gulf Coast Bulk Equipment (GCBE), giving the operator approval to reassign its lease to the company's new partner Logistec Gulf Coast - a Delaware based company with stevedoring and terminal operations throughout the USA and Canada. The lease for GCBE's 5-acre (2.5 ha) property at Port Redwing runs through to 2021.
