Chief Executive Terry O’Connor said “it’s an exciting time for Darwin Port with investment of around $25 Million in works now underway or immediately planned on current projects. We’ve engaged a number of local businesses on port development and we are delighted to be investing in the Darwin economy through local contracts”.
“For our stakeholders, the Port Development Plan 2016 represents a long term vision that has been developed with their business in mind and we look forward to ongoing partnerships well into the future”.
“Darwin Port is well positioned for the future, with strong prospects and clear certainty to become a major logistics hub, servicing the growth and development needs of Northern Australia and beyond. To realise this, we’ve adopted a broad vision for the future. The Port Development Plan 2016 represents a clear strategy designed to inform the Territory, port stakeholders and the wider community about the development vision for the port precincts within the Port of Darwin”.
“The Port Development Plan 2016 will be a living document for Darwin Port, with updates to design concepts composed as our stakeholders’ business develops, demand drives specific projects and opportunities are realised”.
The Port Development Plan 2016 launch coincides with port development projects underway and in design and planning phases worth around $25 Million. These include: a Refrigerated Container Park, a Strategic Hardstand Development and a Harbour Support Vessel Facility.
