The Port Authority unveiled its “Port Master Plan 2050,” a comprehensive document that lays out a flexible roadmap for the next generation of land-use and infrastructure development projects at the Port of New York and New Jersey. Combining worldwide port planning expertise with regional context, Hatch and its teaming partners were able to develop the 30-year port master plan with the Port Authority. The key principles guiding the plan were to provide jobs and economic benefits to the region, ensuring sustainability and resiliency in all operations and future developments, identifying areas for improved operations, alternative revenue streams, and optimizing Port Authority-owned land.
The master plan presents a roadmap for increasing trade flows in all the Port’s markets – containers, auto, bulk, and cruise – including the doubling or tripling of container capacity in the Port, which has pushed it into the position of No. 2 in the nation for the first time in two decades, surpassing the Port of Long Beach, while setting up for a strong position in offshore wind and other alternative fuels, potentially including LNG.
Port Master Plan 2050 emerged after a detailed facility assessment, thorough market analysis including industry trend and market forecasts, and extensive stakeholder engagement from a variety of internal and external port stakeholders.
“Hatch is very proud to be associated with such a comprehensive planning exercise for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, one which lays down clear objectives for a successful growth strategy while ensuring sustainability and resiliency as key goals. An essential focus of this plan is to adopt latest technologies to achieve outcomes which reduce or eliminate emissions.” said Damon Jericho, Hatch’s Global Director Ports and Terminals.
