More space for container trade growth through Melbourne with DP World Australia 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 completion of the Bentley Chemplax site delivers an additional 450 ground slots or 100,000 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) of container capacity per annum, increasing the capacity of the terminal to 1.4m TEU per annum. 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. DP World Australia Chief Financial Officer, Jason Varsamidis, said: “We are investing in the future. This terminal expansion demonstrates our commitment to growing our service offering for our customers. “Bentley Chemplax is a part of an extensive capital investment program, which has also seen us invest in new quay and automated stacking cranes, an empty container handling facility in Sydney, and ten new next-generation straddle carriers in Melbourne,” he said. DP World Australia CEO, Paul Scurrah, said: “The additional capacity provides our customers with a greater level of service and increased productivity
