Newport News Facility

As announced in the Fall of 2019, ECR acquired its Newport News facility comprising 84 acres which includes two each 1,100 foot and 1,000 foot long piers with a water depth of 40 feet. The facility is ideally located at the foot of the Monitor Merrimac Bridge Tunnel and is poised for future investment and expansion. It has since then started improvement work on Pier 14, one of the facilities’ two piers. The progress along the 1,100 ft long pier is forging ahead with work underway comprising of new piles, new mooring system, power upgrades, as well as work on fire main, potable water, and compressed air. More facility improvement work will follow in other areas. The facility will allow ECR to transform its company profile as it looks to accommodate a broader diverse group of vessel owners and operators, such as Military Sealift Command, MARAD, Crowley, Maersk, and other commercial vessel operators.
