DP World Burnie Deal Signed

DP World Australia has entered into an exclusive agreement with the Tasmanian Ports Corporation, Tasports, under which the two parties will work together to provide an international container terminal at the Port of Burnie in North West Tasmania.

Announcing the plan, Tasports CEO Paul Weedon welcomed the commitment by DP World Australia to progress their plans to develop a full-service international container terminal in Burnie.

Tasports will work with DP World Australia to investigate the supporting port infrastructure requirements including channels, berth capacity and enhancements to navigational aids and technology. Once fully developed, the new container terminal is planned to handle the equivalent of 200,000 TEU per annum,” Mr Weedon said.

The provisional launch date for the new facility is January 2017.
