Whether you are in need of a new facility or changes to an existing operation, we will develop your port or terminal project from financing, siting and permitting to turnkey construction and startup. With a full breadth of services, our teams provide stability, value and technological experience in new design.
Regulatory compliance and public perception are things you needn't worry about when you partner with us. Our multidisciplined staff has teams of professionals working to build, maintain and manage public and stakeholder relationships as well as communicate with environmental regulators.
Port Services Coast to Coast
Traditional ways of doing business in ports are being challenged worldwide by demands for increased efficiency, customer responsiveness and lower costs to move cargo. Coupled with rapid growth, strains on transportation infrastructure and the complex challenges of environmental regulations and maritime security, port operators need a trusted partner — like us.
When the fueling facilities at Naval Base Point Loma in San Diego, needed a major recapitalization and environmental cleanup, our teams inspected and demolished 54 above ground tanks; designed and constructed support of eight new 125,000-barrel tanks to maintain 1 million-barrel capacity; new pumps and pumphouse; new support facilities; and new power distribution and relocation of existing site utilities. The depot was kept in full operation during the project — the largest construction effort ever within the Defense Logistics Agency. Read more about the project >
Port Energy Strategies
Protecting your port from disruption is intrinsic to the safety of your operation and vulnerabilities to terror attacks. We are well-versed in the complex and growing challenges of maritime security with demonstrated success in the Smart Power Infrastructure Demonstration for Energy Reliability and Security (SPIDERS) program.
The program is creating a resilient, more reliable microgrid designed to protect against extended power outages and, ultimately, enhance electric power surety for national security at ports and beyond.
We were the design-build integrator for the SPIDERS project at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. The project provides an energy surety microgrid that incorporates new and existing diesel generators with renewable energy sources (solar PV and wind) and a battery storage system to improve reliability of mission-critical facilities.
Port Safety & Security
Leveraging our experience developing energy management plans at hundreds of military, university, industrial, airport and seaport facilities, our teams will provide a high-level review of your operation's demand and use, current issues, growth and opportunities to serve as a basis for future energy strategies at your port.
We are developing an Energy Management Action Plan (EMAP) for the Port of Los Angeles, which will serve as a guide for future energy improvement and usage options. The EMAP focuses on resiliency, availability, quality, efficiency and sustainability and will serve as the basis for a port policy on energy management. It will also establish an energy roadmap, inclusive of the goals and metrics to enhance progress and accountability.
