Rodeo and Richmond, CA
Phillips 66 initiated a proactive upgrade program at their Richmond Terminal and San Francisco refinery following a MOTEMS (Marine Oil Terminal Engineering and Maintenance Standards) performance audit. Power Engineering was selected as the Prime Marine Contractor for both facilities. Project work included upgrading and replacing the existing timber fender system, seismic upgrade of the wharf structures in the Richmond Terminal, and repair to the existing concrete wharfs and pipe ways.
The two marine facilities are located between San Francisco Bay and the Carquinez Strait in an area known for strong currents and high winds. The environmental challenges were compounded by the requirement to work around each facility’s shipping schedules. These environmental and operational constraints added complexity to the project, especially for the underwater construction phases.
With no on-shore construction area available, all fender work, pile driving and concrete repair were completed using Power Engineering’s derrick cranes and barges. There were no safety or environmental incidents on the project. All work was successfully completed on time and on budget.
