The Port of Kalama commission voted this week to award a maintenance dredging contract to Hickey Marine Enterprises for $857,367.39.
This is for part of a routine project to maintain the draft needed for large cargo ships. The firm will remove materials in front of the TEMCO Grain Terminal located at the Port.
The project will start in November and is expected to run through December 31, 2013. General business activity at the Port will not be interrupted during this time.
“One of the goals of the Port of Kalama is to provide the facilities needed for the commerce and success of our business tenants,” says Jacobo Salan, Port of Kalama Economic Development Manager. “We are consistently taking a proactive approach to upgrading and enhancing Port infrastructure for these purposes.”
