Macquarie Infrastructure Company (NYSE: MIC) reported that operations affected by Hurricane Sandy on October 30, 2012 were coming back on line on Monday, November 5, 2012. The Company noted that at its bulk liquid storage terminal in Bayonne, NJ, IMTT – Bayonne, about half of the facilities at the site were back to normal operation and that all of its Atlantic Aviation fixed base operations (FBO) in the region were in operation.
At IMTT-Bayonne power has been restored and the majority of the facility’s piers have been inspected and cleared for operations. Damage assessments have not indicated leakage from any tanks or pipelines.
“The U.S. Coast Guard has reopened New York Harbor to vessel traffic and, thanks to a lot of hard work by a lot of people at both IMTT and in the public sector, liquid products are once again flowing through the IMTT terminal,” said James Hooke, CEO of Macquarie Infrastructure Company.
IMTT will continue to work throughout the week - including with relevant authorities - to ensure Bayonne returns to full operations as quickly as possible and permitted.Atlantic Aviation’s operations at Teterboro, NJ, Farmingdale on Long Island, Bridgeport in Connecticut and at the East 34th Street heliport in New York City were all affected by the hurricane. Operations at all three airports have been restored and the heliport is open and providing limited services as repairs continue. “There has been a tremendous effort on the part of the Atlantic team to get these facilities up and running again,” noted Hooke. The airport in Farmingdale is serving as the base of operations for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and U.S. Coast Guard operations on Long Island.
