Virginia expansion gets underway

The Virginia Port Authority (VPA) has started work on the US$320M expansion of Virginia International Gateway Terminal, and has ordered another four RMGs from Konecranes.

After securing a new, long-term lease on VIG until 2065 last November, the VPA has been moving as fast as it can with the expansion of the terminal, originally APM Terminals Virginia. Surveying began this week for the main stacking and rail yard expansion work, which includes expanding the truck gate. 

“This is an important day in the history of The Port of Virginia; it is an important milestone in our effort to increase sustainability and to prepare this port for what is to come,” said John F. Reinhart, CEO and executive director of the Virginia Port Authority (VPA). “We are adding capacity now so we can handle the cargo that will be coming to us in the very near future. The big ships are here -- more are on the way – and they are carrying significant amounts of containers and Virginia will be ready to accommodate that volume.” 

“This sends a very clear message — worldwide — that The Port of Virginia is investing for the long-term and we will be able to service the vessels of any ocean carrier here at what will be one of the most modern and efficient container terminals in North America for decades to come,” said Virginia Gov. Terry R. McAuliffe. 

The VIG expansion includes a berth extension, four new STS cranes, 26 new ASC cranes for the yard, and will almost double capacity to 1.2M TEU. Wharf work begins March 15 and is scheduled for completion in the winter of 2018. Alan Myers of Virginia is the contractor for the container yard expansion, while Branch Civil is the contractor for the rail yard expansion.

The Rail Yard project includes four new cantilever RMG cranes (CRMGs), that were bid separately from the two orders for ASC cranes for VIG and NIT (Norfolk International Terminal), which total 86 cranes. Konecranes won the order for both the ASC projects, with TMIEC supplying the drives and crane control.

Separately, Konecranes has just announced it has won the contract for the four new CRMG cranes, taking the total number of cranes it has on order from the VPA to 90 units. The first two CRMG cranes will arrive in spring 2018, and the following pair in early 2019.
