Phase 1 - Capacity of 2.1M TEU/yr

Proposed Features of Phase 1

 

  • 55 acres of container dedicated platform

 

  • Automated container yard with 36 AGVs and RMGCs at 630 TEU/hr (total)

 

  • Barge/SSS quay with 6 Post Panamax STS capable cranes at 472 TEU/hr (total)

 

  • One deep water berth with 6 STS EEE capable cranes

 

  • 89 acres of container dedicated platform

 

  • Capacity for throughput of refined products

Connecting the Facility to the Missippi Water-Highway

Low-draft Vessel Proposal

 

 

  • Proposed design will allow for super container ships to be unloaded at the offshore port

 

  • Containers will be placed onto smaller barges capable of navigating the hallower waters of the Mississippi

 

  • Specialty vessels are spec-designed and self-propelled

 

 

Attractive Water-based Cargo Transport Metrics

Potential Export of Liquid Hydrocarbons

U.S. shale boom creating opportunity for liquid hydrocarbon export  

 

  • Significant growth in U.S. fracking has led to advances across the North American oil & gas value chain – creating an abundance of liquid hydrocarbons in the domestic U.S. market

 

  • Legislative framework is currently being discussed to facilitate U.S. crude export; the consensus is that U.S. will likely allow for limited export of crude oil
