Belt Collins Hawaii was the lead engineer for the Kalaeloa Asphalt Terminal, which was built in 2010 to provide the islands with a steady supply of asphalt. It was built to accept ship-sized cargo loads with a storage capacity of 300,000 barrels of asphalt and incorporated a state-of-the-art automated thermal fluid heating system.

The Kalaeloa Asphalt Terminal was designed to provide Hawai‘i with a storage facility that would provide a steady and secure supply of asphalt for the islands. The completed terminal needed to be able to accept ship-sized cargos into storage and provide longer-term storage. Using an innovative design approach that incorporated an automated thermal fluid heating system that was equipped for future addition of controls for energy savings, this project is viewed as one of the finest terminals of its kind in the United States. With a storage capacity of 300,000 barrels of asphalt, the new facility is an example of a successful project that exceeded its client's needs while meeting the demands of the asphalt industry in Hawai‘i.

As lead engineer, Belt Collins coordinated a team of 12 subconsultants. The design, permitting, environmental assessment, and lease agreement negotiations with the State of Hawai‘i all commenced simultaneously and the concurrent approval process was extremely challenging. Approvals that would normally have taken three to four years to complete were done in just 15 months and within budget. With all the permitting and approval challenges successfully met, construction was able to commence earlier than planned.
