Jersen Construction was awarded a contract worth up to $6.3 million to build a warehouse as part of the structural work for the Port of Albany that will allow heavier turbines and generators to be shipped in and out of the Port of Albany.
The Albany Port District Commission selected Jersen Construction of Waterford, New York, during a special meeting Tuesday to oversee structural work for a signature piece of the port’s effort to grow and expand its stature as the primary inland port in the Northeast for large manufacturers and exporters.
“This is going to give us the capability to handle a lot more heavy cargo storage,” Hendrick said.
The port commission also awarded contracts to three other firms. Electrical work was awarded to McBain Electric of Troy for up to $379,000. RBM-Guardian of Albany will install the fire sprinklers for up to $118,135.
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning work was awarded to T. McElligott Inc. of Troy. The total value of that contract is $426,000.
Hendrick said construction of the $7.2 million heavy lift warehouse is expected to begin in July. Reconstruction work on an 840-foot section of docks at the southern end of the port is expected to begin in June.
