Tour of the Port's Middle Harbor

Release Date: 2016-03-02

I had the privilege of touring the Port of Long Beach's Middle Harbor facility with Port Chief Executive John Slangerup (see the pictures).

This project is redeveloping two older terminals at Middle Harbor (Piers D, E and F). This includes construction of various buildings and facilities to house terminal operating staff and provides support areas for the operation. 

Of these buildings, the North Operations Information Technology building (NOIT), Marine Operations Building (MOB), the Power Crane Maintenance Shop (PCMS) and the Auxiliary Maintenance Facility (AMF) are pursuing LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – Gold-level certification.
As a leader in sustainable seaport operations and development, the Port of Long Beach has committed to requiring that all new buildings – including the structures in the Middle Harbor Terminal Redevelopment Program – pursue at least a Silver-level rating in the LEED green building certification program.

Project Highlights:
  • 304 acres
  • Annual throughput capacity of 3.3 million TEUs
  • Three large berths
  • 76-foot channel draft & 60-foot depth alonside dock for compability with next-generation shipping vessels
  • Intermodal - 48,000 feet of railroad track, hnadling up to 35% on-dock rail
  • Two gate complexes with 28 lanes in and 17 lanes out
  • When completed, will be the first zero emission terminal in the world!
