Port of Newcastle has called for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for the supply of two mobile harbour cranes as part of its long-term diversification program.
The call for EOIs aligns with Port of Newcastle’s plans to invest in port capability that supports jobs and boosts the national economy.
The announcement is part of a suite of key strategic development opportunities to support the future diversification of the Port, including the Newcastle Bulk Terminal (NBT), Maritime Precinct, Automotive and Automotive / Ro-Ro Hub.
A separate project to install a new A$35 million state-of-the-art ship unloader at the NBT – boosting safety, environmental compliance, and efficiency in the handling of bulk products – is on track for completion in 2H21.
The projects are part of Port of Newcastle’s focus on creating a broad mix of trade opportunities for a prosperous local, state and national economy, making full use of abundant channel, rail, road, and land capacity to accommodate existing and new trade.
Port of Newcastle is the Hunter’s trade gateway to the world, contributing almost A$1 billion to the local economy and approximately 5700 direct and indirect jobs.
