SUBIC BAY FREEPORT – On January 2009, The Philippine Coastal Storage & Pipeline Corporation (PCSPC) undertook a major undertaking by rehabilitating & reinforcing the existing POL Pier that was formerly operated by the U.S. Navy.
The project covers reinforcing of concrete pilings as well as the replacement of the existing wooden fenders & bollards with state of the art rubber fenders on both sides of the pier. This is in line with the objective of accommodating bigger ships and tankers having 50,000 DWT capacities on both sides.
A new mooring dolphin shall also be constructed at the tip of the pier as an added support structure.
Other vital components such as catwalks and steel structures which have dilapidated and accumulated rust over the years shall also be replaced or dismantled in accordance to international shipping standards.
