Kapalama Container Terminal Expansion Project: Enhancing efficiencies, supporting economic growth, and providing job opportunities

Hawaii Stevedores, Inc. (“HSI”)—with support from HDOT Harbors—will undertake multiple project components to finalize construction and commence operations at the Kapalama Container Terminal (“KCT”) in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The completion of KCT will increase the efficiency, resilience, and safety of cargo handling, reduce emissions and environmental impacts of goods movement across Honolulu Harbor, and develop a strategy for transitioning the terminal and its supporting maritime operations to zero-emission and electric technologies. When complete, the project will establish KCT as the most efficient port in Hawaii and provide an actionable roadmap for transitioning the state’s port and maritime industries to zero-emission technologies.

The project will also incorporate a Preferential Hiring Policy to encourage the hiring of installation, construction, and maintenance personnel from local low-income or disadvantaged communities, areas of persistent poverty, or underserved populations.

In addition to on-the-job training crane operators and handlers will receive when new electrified equipment is installed at KCT, HSI will focus on upskilling union workers to increase their career advancement, build a mentorship pipeline for future workers, and harden the local workforce against job elimination risks due to advanced automation technologies. HSI will also bring emerging job skills training to the area relating to green energy, particularly wind wall turbine installation and microgrid operations and maintenance.
