The Port of Everett Commission has authorised the issue of a tender for dock improvement work in preparation for installing two new 100ft gauge container cranes.

The 700 foot long dock at the South Terminal was originally built in the 1970s for log operations, and has a load limit of 500 pounds per square foot (psf). The port has identified that it needs a minimum 1,000 psf for new cranes and other equipment. 

A 140ft section of the dock was strengthened in 2015, and the port now wants to proceed with phase two of its modernization project. Estimated to cost US$36M, this will see the remanning 560-feet of the South Terminal dock structure upgraded and electrical infrastucture added to prepare for connecting vessels to shore power at berth.

“This capital improvement project, combined with the double rail siding that is currently under construction, will ensure the Port’s facilities are ready to support the next generation of over-dimensional cargo, including aerospace parts for the new 777X coming on line in late-2018.,” the port said in a statement. A tender is expected tpo be issued late this month, with a construction work expected to start in April and be completed by December. 

“This is a bold and momentous step toward the goal that the Port Commission set forward nearly two years ago to modernize its Seaport to support the industry shipping trends,” Port of Everett CEO Les Reardanz said. “This is the largest capital project the Port has undertaken since the construction of Mount Baker Terminal in 2005. Staff has been doing a great job thinking strategically to phase, finance and permit this project in a way that delivers this project by December 2019. I would also like to thank the important partnership of our state and federal partners in Congress, the U.S. Department of Transportation, Washington State Department of Transportation and our permitting agencies for their continued prioritization and investment in the South Terminal Wharf Modernization project.”
Of the estimated US$36M cost, $22M will be met through grant funding, including:
  • $10 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant
  •  $1.8 million Local FASTLANE Grant
  • $5 million State Rail Bank Loan
  • $5.2 million Rail Rehabilitation Innovation Financing (RRIF)
