International-Matex Tank Terminals (IMTT) replaced portions of an existing wood wharf structure at their Richmond, California, facility to meet Marine Oil Terminal Engineering and Maintenance Standards (MOTEMS).
Liftech worked with Manson Construction Company to develop the replacement design. The design allowed IMTT to limit time on-site and maintain operations during construction. The design consists of individual steel-framed platforms supported on steel pipe piles and connected walkways. The structure includes two platforms for piping operations and eleven dolphins for mooring and berthing.
Liftech worked closely with California State Lands Commission and other agencies to help obtain necessary permits. This retrofit was the first major project designed and built to meet the MOTEMS code requirements.
