The VelascoTerminal is located at Port Freeport approximately 60 miles south of Houston, TX. Port Freeport’s existing Berth 7 provides an 800-foot wharf, with a berth depth of 45 feet capable of providing general cargo and container handling capabilities. Port Freeport is in the process of expanding their facilities to meet the anticipated growth in cargo and clients. One project for the Port is a wharf expansion that will involve extending the existing berth and the addition of a new berth to create two berths. The expansion will provide marine infrastructure for a two-berth container terminal that handles up to 7,600 TEU ships and a future dredge depth of 53.5 feet. In addition, there will be locations for heavy lift and Roll-on/Roll-off operations specially designed for heavy project cargo. The expansion project will provide approximately 1,415 feet of new wharf. This paper will address methods of determining and integrating various structural systems for the multipurpose facility while accommodating the safety and integrity of an existing federal flood protection system.
