$6 Million in Civils goes to local contractor

Darwin Port is pleased to award civil construction works at its East Arm Wharf to local construction company, Rusca Bros Service Pty Ltd.

Chief Executive Terry O’Connor said “it was a really competitive process and so pleasing to see such high quality interest from local Territory contractors.  Darwin Port is focussed on continuing to invest in the local economy – we want to ensure we have a positive influence on jobs.”

The civils work is part of the construction of the Refrigerated Container Park and the Strategic Hardstand Development, announced with the release of the Port Development Plan 2016 in May this year.

“We’re keen to just get on with the work to stay genuine in our commitment to develop port infrastructure to support our current and emerging industry sectors,” said Mr O’Connor. 

Construction is expected to commence in mid-August, with the completed Refrigerated Container Park in full operation in December.  The facility will significantly increase refrigerated container capability at East Arm Wharf to better service Northern Australia’s horticulture, aquaculture and agricultural industries, exporting into South East Asia.
