Australia: Port Botany’s Newest Container Terminal Starts Operations

Port Botany’s newest container terminal, Sydney International Container Terminals Limited (SICTL), is now operating. It received its first ship on Wednesday night, the Forum Fiji.

SICTL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH), the world’s leading port investor, developer and operator.

SICTL is HPH’s second international container terminal in Australia. Brisbane Container Terminals (BCT) began operations at its first berth earlier this year with a second berth scheduled to come online in 2014.

The Forum Fiji is operated by Pacific Forum Line as part of the Auspac consortium with Neptune Pacific Line. Auspac was also the first customer to call at BCT.

SICTL Chief Executive, Dr Steve Gumley, said the development of the terminal has benefited greatly from the development of its sister terminal in Brisbane.

Our group has built up considerable expertise in developing new container terminals from the ground up,” Dr Gumley said.
