Container terminal operator announced for Sydney Harbour
A proposed container terminal for Sydney Harbour now has the funding, a builder, a land developer and a terminal operator. It just needs customers. On Monday, Sydney Harbour Investment Partners said in a joint news release it has reached a deal with Ports America of New Jersey to operate what they are calling a dedicated, semi-automated deep-water marine terminal capable of handling some of the largest ships. “It’s significant because of the reputation and scope of this company, Ports America, they’re the largest terminal operator in North America,” said Marlene Usher, CEO of the Port of Sydney Development Corp. “They have key and deep relationships with all of the major shipping lines, and they handle over 14 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) annually, and they have 40 ports in the U.S.” Sydney Harbour Investment Partners, based in Montreal and formerly known as Harbor Port Development Partners, said construction on the terminal — to be called Novaporte — is expected to begin once shipping lines commit to using it.Upload News
