Chevron Pier at Humboldt Bay

WCC has a longstanding relationship with Chevron to do repairs and maintenance at the fuel unloading facility at Humboldt Bay near Eureka, CA. The harsh weather conditions, along with wear and tear from the fuel unloading operations create an ongoing need for maintenance to the facility. Over the years, we have dredged the bay, replaced mooring dolphins and have made repairs to the 600 ft. pier which handles the fuel ships and barges.

During the summers of 2014 and 2015, WCC performed repairs to the pier once again. Due to the sensitive habitat in the bay, the repairs needed to be spaced out over two years. Using a 78x114 ft. barge, along with our 70 ton crane, we replaced damaged and deteriorating piling and supports along with removing unused wooden piling. Repairs are ongoing with projects for the summers of 2016 and 2017 underway.

WCC is one of the few contractors in the area to meet Chevron’s high safety rating administered by ISN, who prequalifies contractors based on their safety programs. This assures Chevron that we have met the rigorous safety standards required to contract on their jobsites.
