  13. 13. Why did we deepen? 13
  14. 14. The trend towards bigger ships is impacting on ports worldwide, particularly where there are draft constraints Emma Maersk – one of the world’s largest container ships 14
  15. 15. Benefits of deepening Larger ships can call fully loaded WA business continues to have access to major container shipping services Competitive freight rates will benefit importers /exporters and consumers Larger, more modern cargo ships Improved efficiency in fuel consumption
  16. 16. Inner Harbour Deepening and Berth Works ProjectValue $250 millionProject Components •Demolition and Reconstruction of Berth 10 for container shipping use. •Strengthening of Berth 4 – 9 to accommodate larger cranes and ships. •Construction of a 1,000m long seawall at Rous Head. •Dredging of the Inner Harbour and Deep Water Channel to handle larger ships. •Reclamation of 27 Hectares of land behind the new seawall for port industry uses.Timeframe Dredging Phase 1: January 2010 – March 2010 Dredging Phase 2: August 2010 – November 2010 Berth Construction Phase April 2009 – April 2011Contractors Package 1 (Civil and marine works): Thiess Georgiou Joint Venture Package 2 (Dredging and reclamation works): Boskalis Australia Pty Ltd 16

  25. 25. Reclamation area
  26. 26. Rous Head reclamation area – AdditionalLand for Port Operational Purposes The 27-hectare site has been created northwest of existing Rous Head Industrial Park as part of Fremantle Ports’ Inner Harbour deepening project The reclaimed land is equivalent to about 20 per cent of the existing North Quay/Rous Head precinct. Its availability represents a significant opportunity to improve trade efficiency and for future port growth A concept plan for the Rous Head/North Quay precinct developed to guide development towards a desired future layout 26
  27. 27. Concept PlanThe plan has been based on: providing essential services to the working port and enhancing supply chain requirements providing adequate capacity for the Inner Harbour’s future trade providing for lot sizes which support an efficient scale of operations maximising the separation of public and heavy vehicle traffic within the port precinct co-locating facilities that have high degrees of traffic interaction (eg. container terminals and container parks) to promote more efficient transport movements establishing a heavy vehicle precinct to facilitate the use of high productivity vehicles 27
  28. 28. Initiatives to Address Inner Harbour LandsideIssues Put more freight on rail Improve road transport efficiency Improve existing road and rail links Provide additional road freight links 28

  31. 31. Transport Corridor PlanningThe Perth metropolitan region is growing and pressure on land isforcing development into increasingly close proximity to intermodalfacilities including ports and transport corridors.The forces behind this include increasing population, rising landvalues, perceived land scarcity, pressure from the land developmentsector and in some cases inadequate planning. 31
