Napier Port today signed the contract with HEB Construction to build its multi-purpose 350 meter wharf, which will boost the port’s ability to handle more and larger ships.

HEB is scheduled to start building the wharf – known as 6 Wharf – during the first quarter of 2020.

Heron Construction & Dredging Limited is the key subcontractor undertaking the essential dredging works, scheduled to begin around the end of the first quarter of 2020.

Napier Port chief executive, Todd Dawson,Assuming no significant weather-related delays or other unforeseen circumstances, construction and dredging should be complete and the new wharf ready to receive its first ship in late 2022.

Planning for this project started over four years ago so it’s a huge milestone to get to this point. 6 Wharf is a critical piece of infrastructure that will help support growth for our customers and Hawke’s Bay’s economy for many years to come,” Mr Dawson says.

Mr Dawson added that the port remains dedicated to ensuring the project is the best it can be for the economy, environment and community throughout construction and dredging.

The project is estimated to cost $173-190 million, excluding capitalized interest and overheads.
