We partnered with Pasha to provide design-build and management services for the $27 million project, which can serve as a model to upgrade the other port terminals. Executed as a design-build project allowed for no interruption to ongoing terminal operations while the complex upgrades were made. Our team also oversaw construction coordination and collaborated with multiple permitting agencies and technology providers.
Funded in part by a California Air Resources Board grant resulting from our written grant application, the project features a clean energy microgrid that allows terminal operations to continue in the event of a widespread power outage.
Another key feature of the project included the deployment of the ShoreKat Marine Exhaust Treatment System, which has the ability to capture more than 90% of criteria pollutant air emissions from auxiliary engine stacks of berthed ships at the terminal. Berthed ships are the largest sources of greenhouse gases and criteria pollutants at marine ports worldwide.
