Project Description

When the State of Delaware was considering the acquisition of the former Chemours Edge Moor Plant for the site of a new container port, the parties needed to define and negotiate risks associated with the property transfer. Duffield’s environmental engineers provided the State with a due diligence review of the property. After years of use as a titanium dioxide and ferric chloride production facility, Duffield assessed the 114-acre property for natural resource damage, demolition progress, and groundwater management. Duffield has also played a major role in planning for the site’s redevelopment, which will ultimately add trades-based jobs to the area and provide significant contributions to the City of Wilmington and State economies. Duffield’s work includes redevelopment impact analysis, permitting, and designs for a new ship berth and approach channels requiring civil, geotechnical, and marine engineering services.
