US: Yusen terminal work due to get under way

Posted on July 22, 2015

The Port of Los Angeles will begin construction this summer on a two-year project to improve the marine container terminal operated by Yusen Terminals LLC.

The Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners has awarded Manson Construction a US$44.6 million contract to upgrade berths, and backlands at Berths 212-224.

“This project consists of strategic improvements to make Yusen a more agile terminal and strengthen our competitive edge,” said Port Executive Director Gene Seroka.

“In addition to making the best use of Port property, it incorporates green features and practices that further our commitment to the highest environmental standards.”

“Yusen is pleased to work with the Port of Los Angeles to improve our wharf and terminal,” said Alan McCorkle, Vice President of West Coast Operations for NYK Ports comprised of Yusen Terminals LLC and Ceres Terminals Inc, sister companies jointly owned by Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK Group) and Macquarie Infrastructure Partners III. “The project will allow Yusen to handle vessels and move cargo more efficiently for our customers.”

Based on all design, project management and construction costs, the port’s total investment is estimated at more than US$67 million.

Yusen operates the 185-acre container terminal under a long-term lease with the Port that extends through 2026.
