1 Update on the Port of Long Beach Doug Thiessen, P.E. ACEC LA Managing Director of EngineeringACEC LAJanuary 15, 2014
2 Port of Long BeachPremier gateway for U.S-Asia trade, major Southern California economic engineLong Beach is the second busiest port in North America, behind LA and ahead of New York, Savannah, and Vancouver.East Asian trade accounts for more than 90% of the shipments through the PortTop trading partners by tonnage are; China, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam, Iraq, Australia, Ecuador and Indonesia.China accounts for about two-thirds of Long Beach’s imports.China accounts for about half of Long Beach’s exports.
3 Who We Are 3,500 acres of land 4,600 acres of water 6 container terminals66 Ship-to-Shore cranes76-foot-deep main channel2nd busiest U.S. container cargo seaportPart of the world’s 9th busiest port complexThe Port is managed by the Long Beach Harbor Department.Governed by a Board of Harbor Commissioners, consisting of five citizens who live in Long Beach and whom are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the city’s council members.Our commissioners set Port policy.The Port is a landlord port, in which it leases port facilities to shipping lines and cargo-handling firms, and the Commissioners act as that landlord.3,500 acres of land4,600 acres of water6 container terminals66 Ship-to-Shore cranes76-foot-deep main channel2nd busiest U.S. container cargo seaportPart of the world’s 9th busiest port complex
4 Diverse Cargo3,500-acre Port moves cars, crude oil, petroleum coke, lumber and container cargoes.3,500-acre Port moves cars, crude oil, petroleum coke, lumber and container cargoesThe first five commodities listed are the top exports by weight (Coal, Petroleum coke, Petroleum products Chemicals, Minerals)The last five commodities listed are top exports by number of containers (Wastepaper, Food, Metal goods, Plastics, Animal feed)
5 Big Ship Ready18,000 TEU201315,500 TEU2006Our industry is entering the “Big Ship Era” and the Port of Long Beach is one of the few U.S. ports that can welcome today's biggest ships. Of new vessels on order, nearly half of capacity will come from 10,000-TEU-plus ships.Our wharves, terminals and even our bridges have to be modified to accommodate these giant ships.19978,100 TEU7,100 TEU1996
6 Largest to Call North America 14,000-TEU MSC Corte Real came in October 2013 – too wide to pass through the expanded Panama Canal.After years of investment in deep-water berths and mega-terminals, Long Beach welcomed a series of the biggest container ships to ever call at a North American port in 2012, culminating with the arrival of a nearly 14,000 TEU vessel.These ships are already too big to pass through the expanded the Panama Canal, which will open in 2015.This fall, three more of these nearly 14,000-TEU ships called in Long Beach.
7 Investing in the Future The Port is investing $4 billion this decade to modernize our facilities even further to meet these evolving industry needs.It's the biggest capital improvement program at any U.S. port.Recently, the Long Beach Board of Harbor Commissioners approved a $788 million FY 2014 capital improvement budget – the Port of Long Beach’s biggest ever.Last year, in FY2013, the Port spent $732 million on its capital projects. That was our previous record-high for capital spending.So in just these two years, we’re investing $1.5 billion in infrastructure improvements.Investing in the FuturePort has begun a $4 billion upgrade of facilities to stay competitive
8 Current Major Programs Pier G RedevelopmentMiddle Harbor RedevelopmentGerald Desmond Bridge ReplacementOn-and Near-Dock RailShore-to-Ship PowerFire Protection ProgramHere is a list of our major projects:Pier G Redevelopment (Phase 1 nearing completion)Middle Harbor RedevelopmentGerald Desmond Bridge ReplacementNew Maintenance Facility (Done)On- and Near-Dock RailShore-to-Ship Power (Done)Fire Protection Program
9 The improvements include our $1 The improvements include our $1.2 billion state-of-the-art Middle Harbor terminal.This 305-acre facility will be one of the cleanest and most efficient container terminals in the world.It’s capacity is 3 million TEUs – more than double the current capacity with half the air emissions.When done, MH alone will be the 4th largest “Port” in the US. Bigger than Seattle, Tacoma, Oakland, Savannah, CharlestonCurrently our six container terminals are averaging roughly 1 million TEUs each.The new Middle Harbor terminal will support 14,000 addition permanent jobs.Middle Harbor$1.2 billion facility will be one of the most technologically advanced terminals in the world.
11 Middle Harbor Redevelopment Phase 2Phase 1Phase 2Phase 1Phase 1 is scheduled for completion in 2015, allowing our tenant, Long Beach Container Terminal and OOCL, to move their operations over to the new berths E24 and E26.Phase 2 will complete development in 2019, allowing LBCT to operate the entire 305 acres with a third berth, E22.Middle Harbor Redevelopment305-acre facility under construction in two phases.
12 Middle Harbor Redevelopment Phase 1- $779.3 Million10 construction projectsThird-party utility improvements/relocationsPhase 2- $449.7 Million9 construction projectsHere are the budgets for the two phases: Nearly $780 million for the first phase, and slightly under $450 million for Phase 2.Phase 1 consists of 13 individual construction projects and utility improvements, including the oil field work.All contracts have been awarded and are underway.Phase 2 consists of 9 individual construction projects, and more utility and oil improvements.
13 Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement The Gerald Desmond Bridge replacement is our other major project.We’re building a $1.3 billion cable-stay bridge.We awarded a $650 million design-build contract to Shimmick, FCC & Impregilo (SFI) on July 2012.Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement$1.3 billion cable-stay bridge; $650 milliondesign-build contract awarded to Shimmick,FCC & Impregilo on July 2012.
14 The preliminary engineering is complete. We’re two-thirds of the way through all the Right-of-Way work, including site acquisition and the relocation of utilities and oil wells.This work is nearly complete on the west end on Terminal Island but continues on the east side of the channel.Design of the roadway, approaches and main span are at about 90% and we marked a critical milestone recently with the receipt of the approved Geometric Approval Drawings from Caltrans.Pre-ConstructionPreliminary engineering complete, two-thirds through Right-of-Way work.
15 Future Opportunity Demolition of Existing Bridge We’re scheduled to complete the replacement bridge in 2016.That year, we’re planning to seek proposals for the demolition of the bridge.Future OpportunityDemolition of Existing Bridge
16 On & Near Dock Rail Improvements Pier BOn-Dock Rail Support Facility*Ocean Blvd. Track RealignmentPier G SouthRail Yard*RAIL is CENTRAL to our growth.As we expand trade, we can’t put all of it on trucks.So the growth area is rail.We need to upgrade rail.Our rail projects include:Pier BMHOcean BlvdPier GMiddle Harbor On-Dock Rail*Future project
17 Shore power is a significant strategy for reducing vessel emissions. Ships account for about 60% of port-related emissions, and almost half of those emissions occur at berth while the ship is loading and unloading.In 2006, when the Port adopted the Clean Air Action Plan, we committed to reducing our air quality impacts with shore power as a major strategy.At the end of 2007, the California Air Resources Board enacted a regulation requiring shipping lines to start plugging into shore power beginning in January 2014.So , the Port moved ahead to retrofit berths at all of our existing container terminals with the landside infrastructure needed to support shore power.Shore Power ProjectsPort is reducing air quality impacts through the Clean Air Action Plan. The state has enacted a regulation requiring shore power in 2014.
18 Major EffortSimultaneous construction at all container terminals and 12 berthsThis is a map showing the berths that have been retrofitted for shore power.This was a major effort and involves significant and concurrent construction at 12 separate container terminal berths.The work has and continues to be coordinated so that operations at the terminals isn’t disrupted.All of the work had a deadline of December 31, 2013 with respect to the overall objective of being ready for ships to plug in on or before January 1, 2014.
19 Project Budgets Project Budget Actual Cost to Date Estimated Final CostPier A$19.4 million$16.3 million$18.3 millionPier G$17.9 million$13.9 million$16.5 millionPier J$56.1 million$43.2 million$49.9 millionPier T$33.6 million$24.1 million$31.1 millionTotal$127 million$97.5 million$115.8 millionHere’s where we are today – our budget for the retrofit program was about $127 million.Construction contract bids for each of these four projects were all less than the corresponding Engineer’s Estimates developed during the design of each projectOur total cost to date for the four projects is about $100 million.So currently, we’re at about $30 million below what we budgeted.We are estimating that when we tally our final costs, the total cost of the four projects will be about $116 million -- $11 million below our budgeted amount.
