Dredging Initiatives Prepare Terminals for Deep Draft Vessels

The Port Authority recently completed the deepening of a fourth berth at Maher Terminal to 50 feet. Maher Terminals increased the number of new post-Panamax zero air emission electric powered container cranes by four in 2007, bringing its total to nine. The terminal now has 5,000 feet of 50-foot deep berths.

The agency also completed the deepening to 50 feet of three berths (3,500 linear feet) at APM Terminal. With the deepening of the three berths and APM's recent acquisition of six post-Panamax zero air emission electric powered container cranes, the Elizabeth terminal has further advanced its redevelopment plans.

Both terminals are well positioned to service larger, deep draft vessels into the future.
