Next Generation Vessels
Design work is in progress for Everport’s proposed plan to deepen its berths and improve its terminal facilities, allowing the terminal operator to accommodate the larger next-generation vessels. Everport’s proposed $58 million project would improve Berths 226-229 wharves and increase berth depth from 45’ to 53’, and improve Berths 230-232 wharves to a 47’ berth depth. The project will also involve constructing an additional 1.5 acres of backland and electrical improvements for five new AMP® connections. Construction is expected to start in late 2018.
