Hawaii Stevedores, HDOT to Keep Developing KCT

Honolulu-based Hawaii Stevedores and the Hawaii State Department of Transportation (HDOT) will continue the joint development of the Kapalama Container Terminal (KCT).

The state has confirmed its commitment for Hawaii Stevedores to lease the new 84-acre, state-of-the-art KCT, which will be constructed at the former Kapalama Military Reserve Terminal at Sand Island in Honolulu, as part of the state’s USD 448 million Harbors Modernization Plan.

“This project represents the single largest capital investment the harbor system has ever made, supported by a significant capital outlay by Hawaii Stevedores for infrastructure unique to its operation, including facilities and container gantry cranes,” said George Pasha, IV, President and CEO, The Pasha Group, which owns Hawaii Stevedores.

This project is the culmination of more than 10 years of collaboration between Horizon Lines, Hawaii Stevedores, and the HDOT. When the Pasha Group acquired Horizon Lines’ Hawaii business in 2015, including its independent subsidiary, Hawaii Stevedores, the HDOT and Hawaii Stevedores continued to work together on making the KCT project a reality, according to the company.

Currently Hawaii Stevedores’ container terminal at Pier 51 on Sand Island and at Piers 1 and 2 are at capacity. Therefore, it is not possible to consolidate customer cargo until the construction of KCT is completed.

Once the new terminal is finished, Hawaii Stevedores, which the state has designated the exclusive user of KCT, plans to consolidate its customers to its terminal at KCT, allowing the state to modernize Piers 1 and 2. KCT is anticipated to launch between 2022 and 2023.
