Intermarine expands Houston terminal
Project specialist carrier Intermarine said Friday it has expanded its Houston terminal.
The expansion takes the terminal's berth length to 1,050 feet from 725 feet, making it long enough for two of Intermarine's largest vessels at once. A reinforced landing apron has also been completed, which will allow for 1,000 pounds-per-square-foot load factors.
Intermarine acquired the terminal, Industrial Terminals, in 2004 and said it has invested $20 million in the facility since. Breakbulk stevedoring company Gulf Stream Marine operates the terminal. The carrier said the terminal has the largest throughput of project cargo in the United States.
Intermarine sails about 200 voyages from the Houston terminal annually, carrying about 3 million tons of cargo.
