New hydraulic gangway at Port Botany’s Bulk Liquids Berth 1

In 2018 we replaced the old gangway tower at Port Botany’s Bulk Liquid Berth 1 with a new, custom manufactured gangway tower.

This ensured safe access to both large and small ships and improved berth efficiency by reducing berth occupancy time by over 30 minutes for each ship calling at Bulk Liquid Berth 1.

Outcome

New infrastructure like this gangway increases the capacity of the berth and provides faster vessel turn-around – improving productivity and facilitating the handling of larger ships in line with our 30 Year Master Plan.

This initiative was delivered over and above the 2015 Sustainability Action Plan.
