DP World Australia Completes Melbourne Terminal Expansion

DP World Australia’s new 30,000 sqm Melbourne terminal expansion, at the former Bentley Chemplax site, was commissioned on Tuesday (15 March 2016), signalling the start of a suite of capital investment projects in 2016-17.

The development is the terminal’s largest expansion project since 2010, and represents the first in a series of new investments in DP World Australia’s hardstand infrastructure, yard equipment and wharf assets.

Construction commenced in September 2015 and the project was delivered under budget and in line with the original schedule by contractors, Fulton Hogan, despite difficult ground conditions and construction adjacent to an operating terminal.

Following the Bentley Chemplax project, the Melbourne terminal will enter its next expansion phase, with the partial closure and redevelopment of Coode Road (subject to Port of Melbourne approval) scheduled to commence in 2016.

The expanded terminal is open for testing and will be officially opened at an event in April.
