Andeavor modules reach Anacortes

Published October 2, 2017 / by Steve Berentson

A cargo ship containing nine modules bound for Andeavor Refinery on March’s Point arrived over the weekend. Longshoremen began unloading the units Monday m0rning, staging them near Cap Sante Marina before they can be moved later in the week to the refinery. Module moves will take place in the middle of the night in an effort to minimize disruption of travel on “R” Avenue and Highway 20. The modules will be installed at the refinery as the first phase of Andeavor’s “Clean Products Upgrade Project (CPUP).” There are many jobs associated with the project, including work at the Port’s Pier 2 and continuing as contractors and refinery employees install the new components.

About Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
