Galveston Wharves in the USA has completed a USD2 million infrastructure improvement project at its West Port Cargo Complex to accommodate large ro-ro construction and farming equipment.
The 18-month project included new paving, dock repairs, an equipment processing centre, and an industrial wash pad for cargo exports. The 70-acre (28.3-ha) complex is designed to handle a wide range of cargoes, including ro-ro, large wind turbine pieces and grain.
“This is a major milestone in the implementation of our 20-year strategic master plan and a big step toward realising our vision for the West Port Cargo Complex, which will consolidate cargo operations for greater efficiency and growth,” said Rodger Rees, port director and ceo.
This is the first phase of a USD30 million improvement project to expand the port’s cargo area, improve infrastructure, and consolidate major cargo activities.
