Award Description: Project Description: The project includes two phases that are spread over two years. Phase I Parent 700104 $1,630,000 Crane 6378 Rehabilitation project will add new motor control drives (the original drives were designed in the 1980's). This will improve the crane’s reliability, improve crane accuracy, and improve overload recognition. This will make trouble shooting electrical repair issues on the crane faster and easier. In addition this project will paint the back-reach area of the trolley girder beam. Phase II 101353 $7,249,000 Berth 604-605 Wharf Modernization, will extend the 100' crane rail approximately 470', to the end of Berth 604, to create approximately 1,800' of 100' crane rail. The project will also strengthen approximately 450' of crane rail A by installing a new concrete beam under the rail. The project will improve the dock strength at Berth 604 and 605 by installing tie-back beams to reduce the risk of seismic damage and allow Berth 604 west to be deepened and maintained to the same depth as Berth 604 east and Berth 605 (45' + 5' instead of the current depth of 43’ + 2’). The project will reconfigure the PPMX crane power feeds to allow as much use of the 100’ crane rails by as many PPMX cranes as possible. The project will improve stormwater management by replacing catch basins that are impacted by construction with new catch basins and a by installing a stormwater vault. Other project components are minor structural modifications to the top of the sheet piles where they are in contact with the concrete slab and additional crane storage pin pockets and crane jacking points within the area of new 100’ crane rail.
Project Description: Crane 6378 Rehabilitation Crane Move Notice to proceed was issue on September 4 to Rigging International The crane was moved off of the dock during the week of September 7th to a location approximately 600’ back from the face of the dock. Currently assessing options for installation of the motor control packages which will determine the timing of moving crane back onto the dock. Crane Painting Notice to proceed was issued on September 23, 2009 to FD Thomas Incorporated. The painting has a scheduled substantial completion date of November 5, 2009. Crane Motor Control System Procurement Terms are being finalized and the Port has issued an intent to award a contract to ABB Inc. Crane Systems to manufacture and provide start-up engineering of a new motor control system. The contract award is scheduled for the Port’s October Commission Meeting. The motor controls are scheduled to be manufactured and delivered by April 2010. Installation, start up and commissioning of the motor control systems is scheduled to be complete by July 2010. Berth 604-605 Wharf Modernization A contract for engineering design services was completed in September with Worely Parsons Westmar. Project design is underway on the electrical and stormwater portions of the project. Soil investigation is underway for the structural and seismic improvement portions of the project. The project design is scheduled to be completed by April 2010 with construction beginning in the summer of 2010 and a scheduled substantial completion in spring 2011.
Infrastructure Description: The project will create construction jobs and retain professional service jobs. In addition, the investment made will provide long-term economic benefits by extending the life of the dock structure at berths 604 & 605 and post-Panamax crane 6378.
Jobs Summary: Laborers, Engineering Design, administrative support personnel (Total jobs reported: 2)
