Hawaii Port Infrastructure Contract Awarded

The Maritime Administration has awarded a contract designed to streamline development efforts that modernize Hawaii’s commercial harbor facilities. A partnership between the Maritime Administration and the State’s Harbors Division was established in 2005 to facilitate the redevelopment and expansion of Hawaii’s port system -- efforts that are critical to the economy of Hawaii.

The seven year “Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity” contract with a maximum value of $400 million was awarded to TEC, Inc., through a competitive procurement process. The company has a major presence in Hawaii and has been active for many years in the fields of engineering, environmental planning, architecture, infrastructure development, and energy management. The Maritime Administration will oversee TEC’s personnel as they manage and complete all phases of the port redevelopment project.

As the lead federal agency for the Hawaii Port Infrastructure Expansion Program, the Maritime Administration will partner with other federal agencies, the State, and local Hawaiian governments to implement time sensitive and cost effective infrastructure improvements that stimulate sustained economic growth. These efforts are expected to be completed within the timeframe of the contract and will ultimately transform Hawaii’s port system to improve transportation efficiency, air quality, and create jobs.
