More funds for Savannah paving upgrade

The Board of the Georgia Ports Authority GPA) has approved project funding to increase capacity, efficiency and flexibility in heavy machinery exports at the Port of Savannah.

The Board approved an additional US$2M, making a total of just under US$5M dedicated recently to high density paving at Savannah’s Ocean Terminal.

The improved surface employs roller compacted concrete (RCC), which is conducive to the heavy traffic and loads endured by paved surfaces in a shipping terminal. Unlike traditional concrete, RCC is relatively dry when poured and offers a faster cure time. It also reduced the cost of the project and the amount of natural resources required, the GPA said.

The additional funding will expand outdoor paved areas to improve sorting and storage of cargo handled at Ocean Terminal. The work includes expanding and improving the cargo pressure washing area and cargo staging areas to support outside stored cargo.

“This project will provide greater capacity in moving oversized roll-on/roll-off cargo at Ocean Terminal,” said GPA Executive Director Curtis Foltz. “It will yield better efficiency, and lower long-term maintenance costs by providing a more durable surface for moving and staging these heavy cargoes.”

The improvements at Savannah follow similar infrastructure projects at GPA’s Colonel’s Island Facility in Brunswick, where roadways, bridges and staging areas were also strengthened to accommodate additional tracked and heavy equipment.

In the last four years the volume of ro-ro cargo moved though Georgia’s deepwater ports has nearly doubled from 293,265 units in FY2009 to 569,984 in FY2012.
