Constructed in 1946, Chevron's Richmond Long Wharf, spanning approximately 16 acres over water, stands as California's largest marine terminal. This vital facility undergoes ongoing maintenance and enhancements to boost efficiency and safety, increase capacity, and align with Marine Oil Terminal Engineering and Maintenance Standards (MOTEMS). Power has been a dedicated partner in meeting these evolving requirements since 1994.
Projects aimed at reducing emissions, seismic strengthening and repairs, electrical modernization, and MOTEMS compliance have all been successfully executed. Each endeavor follows a collaborative approach, involving close engagement between the owner and engineers during the planning, permitting, and construction phases. This approach prioritizes both quality and safety, fostering a strong and lasting partnership over the years.
The scope of work undertaken encompasses various tasks, including pile driving, underwater pile repairs, demolition and replacement of reinforced concrete deck and beams, cast-in-place concrete over water, timber framing and decking, fender and mooring installations, steel structure assemblies, and the installation and commissioning of industrial machinery.
All work is executed from barges while operating amidst the existing wharf traffic, often in proximity to live fuel systems, and is consistently subject to oversight by multiple regulatory agencies. As a unified team, the wharf operates as a remarkable facility, always striving for continuous improvements in quality and safety.
