Port Houston undergoes Modernization with help from Engineering Firm, Hatch

Port of Houston Authority (PHA) continues to upgrade and modernize elements of its Barbours Cut Container Terminal—one of two major container terminals that they operate—to accommodate a forecasted double-digit growth. PHA oversees 25 miles of terminals along the 52-mile-long ship channel the busiest port in the US in terms of foreign tonnage, second-busiest in overall tonnage, and sixteenth-busiest in the world. PHA has called upon Hatch, an engineering and consultancy firm with more than two decades of experience at Port Houston, to plan and execute upgrades to the in-bound truck check-in gate and security gates, which are nearing their functional capacity. By expanding, relocating, and modernizing the gates and components, the terminal will have a throughput of 2.5 million TEUs, twice that of the existing in-bound gate system.
