Green Project Wins $47M

The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) in November was awarded $47.3 million in competitive grant funds for the Kapalama Container Terminal–Gaining Regenerative and Efficient Energy Needs (KCT-GREEN) project. KCT-GREEN is a joint project by Hawaii Stevedores Inc. (HSI) and The Pasha Group (TPG), HSI’s parent company.

The $139.3 million project will equip KCT with resilient zero-emission and electric technology to reduce emissions and the environmental impact of cargo-handling operations. The grant was awarded through the U.S. Department of Transportation Maritime Administration’s Port Infrastructure Development Program (PIDP). The PIDP grant will be matched by $92 million in private funds from HSI and TPG.

Plans include electrified Ship-to-Shore cranes, regenerative energy storage, microgrid battery energy storage systems, a solar power system for the terminal building, a micro wind turbine (WindWall), electric vehicle supply equipment systems, state-of-the-art gate systems, weigh-in motion scales, an RFID inspection system and a Customs Radiation Portal Monitor system. HDOT previously reported that the project will likely break ground in Q1 2023 and employ approximately 300 construction workers.
