PANYNJ Master Plan

Project Sponsor: Hatch
Stage: Planning
Value:$3.4 million
Presenter: Hatch
Description: Hatch has been chosen to develop a long-term port master plan for the Port Authority of New York New Jersey (PANYNJ), the most comprehensive plan in the port's recent history. The strategy will span all PANYNJ port facilities, deploying Hatch's considerable ports and urban solutions expertise to guide development of the infrastructure hub's 3,000-plus acres of cargo-related property over the next 30-plus years. The volume of cargo entering the New York metropolitan area is growing in part due to post-Panamax ships with greater carrying capacity and increased rerouting between ports on both Atlantic and Pacific coasts. PANYNJ is looking to define a growth strategy that addresses major issues facing the region, such as increasing population density, heavily trafficked regional road and rail networks, and consumer trends that favor short-distance and high-frequency delivery of goods. The 30-year plan will examine the port's six container terminals as well as its auto, bulk/break-bulk, cruise, and adjacent real estate holdings. Hatch's experience in delivering large, multi-sector, infrastructure projects will be leveraged in order to provide comprehensive, future-forward solutions to meet the port's existing challenges and drive growth.

The Plains & Eastern Clean Line will carry renewable energy from the Great Plains east to markets that have a strong demand for low-cost, clean power. The Plains & Eastern Clean Line will deliver enough clean energy to serve more than one million homes per year. Renewable energy generators and utilities that purchase transmission capacity on the line will pay for usage of the Plains and Eastern Clean Line.

Pacifico HVDC Link
Project Sponsor: Pacifico HVDC Link, Inc.
Stage: Planning
Value: $1.2 billion
Presenter: David Jones, CEO, Pacifico HVDC Link, Inc.
Description: The Pacifico HVDC Link project is an approximately 700 km long 1,000 MW High-Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) power transmission line that will interconnect the regional electricity systems of Peru and Chile. The Project will allow the complementary and cost effective exchange of low-emission firm hydropower and natural gas generation from Peru and renewable energy generation from Chile. In doing so, the Pacifico HVDC Link project will serve to significantly reduce green house case emissions across the region while also significantly improving grid reliability and stability. The Pacifico HVDC Link project is being developed as an independent private sector initiative.

Rail & Urban Mass Transit:


Infrastructure Ontario's Priority Project Portfolio
Project Sponsor: Infrastructure Ontario
Stage: Planning
Value: $10 billion
Presenter: Derrick Toigo, Senior Vice President, Project Delivery
Description: Infrastructure Ontario is engaged in delivering Ontario's large and complex infrastructure projects using the Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP) model. IO's track record is 96% on budget for projects completed. As Ontario's focus moves to the historic investment in public transit and transportation, IO is working with partners on light rail, regional and other transit projects.

VIA Rail High Frequency Rail Project (Montreal-Ottawa-Toronto)
Project Sponsor: VIA Rail Canada
Stage: Planned
Value: $5.25 billion
Presenter: Yves Desjardins-Siciliano, President and CEO
Description: A dedicated passenger rail track within the Québec City – Windsor corridor is an important part of Canada's transportation system. In 2015 and since the beginning of 2016, we have increased ridership and revenue, demonstrating the relevance of our trains within the corridor. As the number of freight trains, commuter trains and VIA Rail trains continue to climb, it will become increasingly difficult for our passenger trains to improve their on-time performance. Without the reliability of on-time trains, Canadians will continue to choose their cars for shorter trips within the corridor, which will increase congestion and create unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions.

New York City's 7 Line Extension
Project Sponsor: MTA Captial Construction
Stage: Planned
Value: $2.42 billion
Presenter: Shawn Kildare, Senior Vice President, Program Executive
Description: The project extends the existing No.7 Line subway service via a 1.5 mile extension from Times Square to the new 34 Street – Hudson Yards station located at West 34th Street and 11th Avenue, with additional train storage tracks south to West 25th Street. This is the only station south of 59 Street to provide service west of 9th Avenue. The station is designed to handle 25,000 people in a peak hour and is anticipated to become the busiest single line station in the New York City Transit Subway system once Hudson Yards is fully developed.
