Waterside engineering design services contract awarded to CH2M;
site surveying and permitting process in progress
Port Canaveral, FL – Sept. 1, 2017 – Efforts are underway at Port Canaveral for a new Cruise terminal. The Canaveral Port Authority (CPA) has contracted with CH2M Engineering to provide the waterside design, engineering and support services for Port Canaveral's new Cruise Terminal 3. CPA Commissioners approved the $1.2 million funding for CH2M's project management contract at its June 7 meeting, taking the first step in a two-year work plan to build a state-of-the-art facility able to serve cruise vessels with up to 8,000 passengers calling on the Port. The new terminal will replace one of Port's oldest cruise terminals currently being used for single-day port of call vessels.
"Port Canaveral continues to experience growth in all sectors, and particularly in our cruise business," said Port Canaveral CEO Captain John Murray. "With 80 percent of our revenue from cruise operations, it's important that we continuously improve our capabilities to meet the current and future needs some of the world's largest, most sophisticated cruise ships."Read more »
