Guam - The Port Authority of Guam has condemned Dock C at the Agat Marina. Following last week’s storm there were reports of significant damage to Dock C and additional damage to Dock B. There were a total of seven (7) slips on Dock C that were damaged and four (4) slips at Dock B that are no longer usable.

Following an inspection this week by the Port’s Engineering Division it was determined that Dock C was no longer structurally sound and that it is past the point of repair and must be replaced in its entirety.

The Port is now in the process of working with marina tenants to relocate their vessels from Dock C to the Agat Marina Dock A and B, the Gregorio D. Perez Hagatna Marina, the Harbor of Refuge or removal of the vessel by trailer.

According to a press release, the Port earlier this year contracted with Rex International, Inc. for the replacement of a new aluminum Dock A. That was recently completed at a cost of $532,100.00. The Port has also recently awarded a contract to AIC International Inc. to construct a new Dock C and D at the Agat Marina at a cost of $1,593,208.00. The Port is currently awaiting approval from the Public Utilities Commission on the contract with AIC to commence the demolition of Docks C and D and the construction of the new aluminum dock facilities.
