Botany Bay Container Terminal Construction Contract Awarded

Press Release
Friday, August 17, 2012

Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH) awards Laing O’Rourke the civil works contract for Australia's new Port Botany Terminal 3.

The contract marks the start of the on-ground works of HPH’s A$500 million investment for the development of a new container terminal.  Laing O’Rourke will construct an A$150 million civil and rail infrastructure, representing the first phase of the newly reclaimed Botany Bay expansion.

The terminal is scheduled to begin operations in 2013.

Raymond Law, Managing Director of HPH Australasia and North Asia, said: “HPH is committed to delivering a new world-class container handling facility to Sydney. Awarding the construction contract is a significant step towards the creation of a new stevedoring operation in Port Botany.”

Laing O’Rourke’s work for the Port Botany project includes the provision of rigid pavement using onsite concrete batching, high voltage substations, structural support for the heavy duty quay and stacking crane systems, rail sidings, drainage and ground improvements.

Laing O’Rourke CEO Steve Hollingshead said that this was a significant project and one in which the company was proud to be involved.
“Port Botany Terminal 3 is directly related to the growing infrastructure needs of NSW and demonstrates – as we already have done repeatedly at the Port of Newcastle – that Laing O’Rourke is uniquely placed to manage complex integrated port and rail solutions,” Mr Hollingshead said.
