SSA Terminals to boost reefer containers capacity

SSA Terminals to upgrade electrical refrigerator container

The Northwest Seaport Alliance (NWSA) has announced a proposal for a new electrical infrastructure at Seattle Terminals (SSAT).

The electrical infrastructure will supply power for up 960 new refrigerated containers.

To guarantee that this project is completed on time, SSAT intends to acquire the necessary substations and enclosures, have them constructed, and ship them to the site during the building of the site work.

This package contains four substations and enclosures required to complete the electrical renovations on time.

The chosen vendor will be responsible for furnishing, delivering, and providing onsite commissioning assistance for four substations and enclosures.

The vendor must note Buy American Requirements, noted NWSA, since the work is partially supported by a USDOT Maritime Administration (MARAD) Port Infrastructure Development Programme (PIDP) Grant and is subject to Buy American Requirements.

According to NWSA, the estimated contract price is approximately $6 to $7 million.

In April of this year, NWSA unveiled its Rail Cargo Incentive Program for 2023, which aims to promote growth and cost-effective operations in the Pacific Northwest region.

More recently, NWSA disclosed figures indicating a steady decline in TEU freight volumes this year.
