SAN PEDRO, CA-The Los Angeles Harbor Commission has certified the final Environmental Impact Report for the proposed expansion of Berths 302-306 and approved the project that will modernize the container terminal operated by long-time tenant Eagle Marine Services Ltd., a subsidiary of ocean carrier APL. Due to begin in late 2012, the two-year marine terminal redevelopment project at the facility commonly known as “Pier 300”  is expected to generate nearly 3,400 jobs during construction and add nearly 8,000 permanent direct and indirect jobs to the Southern California economy over the next 15 years, according to a prepared statement.

Green innovations include equipping the entire terminal with Alternative Marine Power electrical infrastructure to eliminate emissions from ships at berth and other San Pedro Bay Clean Air Action Plan measures. The $196 million project at the Port’s second-largest terminal will maximize use of the property by allowing APL to handle nearly 58% more ship calls and accommodate more than 65% more cargo, while growing the terminal footprint less than 20%, according to the statement. The percentages translate into up to 390 ship calls and the capacity to move more than 3.2 million TEUs annually by 2027 on a 347-acre terminal.
