Orion Group Holdings’ Marine Segment has won a $18 million contract from the Port of Corpus Christi for the design, construction and dredging of a new cement unloading dock, set to be located on the Corpus Christi ship channel.
Commenting the latest contract, Port of Corpus Christi CEO, Sean Strawbridge, said: “The P3 paradigm (Public Private Partnerships) is a proven model for success as we continue to invest our capital, alongside our customers, in large industrial projects for the region.”
“By using a design-build procurement process, Port Corpus Christi selected Orion to deliver our customer, GCCM Holdings (Gulf Coast Construction Materials), a world class cement handling terminal on Port property with a throughput in excess of 300,000 tons per year.
“This P3 project is further example of the Port of Corpus Christi’s continued focus on cargo diversification while providing South Texas with much needed construction materials as we continue our epic industrial job-creating growth.”
The project is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2018 with a duration of approximately one year.
