Port of Los Angeles Completes Everport Terminal Upgrades

The modernization of the terminal is designed to improve Everport’s container handling efficiency and capacity, and also allow it to accommodate the anticipated fleet mix of larger vessels that are expected to call at the terminal over the coming next two decades.

Larger ship calls will mean fewer ship calls, reducing air emissions, which is in line with the Port of Los Angeles Clear Air Action Plan.

“The completion of this project marks years of planning and perseverance in the face of a difficult pandemic and an unprecedented increase in freight,” said Port of Los Angeles Deputy Executive Director of Development Tony Gioiello. “Thanks to our partners, we have reached a critical milestone in our efficiency goals, ensuring the Everport terminal is ready to receive the next generation of container ships.”

Construction of the Everport Container Terminal included: deepening the quays; upgrades to mooring bollards and berth fenders; construction of an additional 6,000 m² courtyard; electrical upgrades for five new Alternative Maritime Power connections; electrical infrastructure for three additional container cranes; charging equipment for clean energy and electric trucks.

The dredging increased the water depth to -16.15 meters along Piers 266-229 and to -14.32 meters along Piers 230-232 to accommodate loaded vessels up to 16,000 TEUs.
