DPW still committed to Tasmanian terminal
DP World Australia is to proceed with a container terminal at Burnie, a decision applauded by the Tasmanian Government.
DP World has struck a deal with TasPort allowing DP World to renew its intentions to set up on the north coast of Tasmania, despite the failure of the Australian Government to amend the Australian coastal shipping laws, which was previously a pre-condition of building the terminal.
It will now be open purely to international shipping. DPWA is expected to spend A$75m in plant and development, with the first ships being handled at Burnie by the end of 2017. The terminal will be able to handle 200,000 teu a year, with the existing ship-to-shore crane refurbished and another brought in. Other investment will boost reefer capacity, integrate the yard with the rail terminal and provide container handling equipment.
The Tasmanian Government welcomed the move, saying it would boost the local economy and attract additional international container shipping lines.
