Back to Projects
  • Sustainable port revitalization leads to a vibrant, cleaner coastal community

  • Project Overview

    The POLB Pier G Redevelopment Program is a multi-year effort estimated at $500 million. It will consolidate and modernize the entire terminal with more efficient, environmentally friendly truck gates, rail facilities and berths. We’re providing electrical design services that include a complete field verification of the existing electrical systems, master planning, coordination with Southern California Edison, substation consolidations, crane power systems, shore-to-ship power systems, area lighting systems and reefer distribution systems.

  • Solution

    Work began in 2000 with storage rail lines, truck gate and deep-water berth projects. These were followed by various marine and landside projects that provided additional land for trade and additional rail yard capacity to eliminate trucks from freeways. LEED Certified “green buildings” showcasing sustainable construction in a container shipping terminal were also featured in this project. Upon completion, the project will encompass over 4,000 SF of wharf and over 250 acres of backland improvements. This multi-phase project began in 2008 and phases were completed as follows:

    • Pier G Master Planning (July 2008 - 2015)­
    • Pier G236 Shore to Ship Power retro­fit (August 2010 - September 2013)
    • ­Pier G North Slip Redevelopment (October 2010 - October 2014)
