Sydney's Newest International
SICTL began initial operations in early November 2013 and when fully operational will have a total capacity of more than 1 million TEU per annum. The terminal will operate four shipping berths with a 1,300 metre quay.
HPH signed an agreement with the New South Wales State Government in 2009 providing HPH with a 30-year lease on the 45-hectare site.
Port Botany is the State’s premier port and Australia’s second largest international container port. The new SICTL terminal is an integral part of the Port’s expansion program, which is needed to ensure this major port continues to meet the growing demand for container traffic in the years ahead. The introduction of SICTL as the third container operator into the port is creating greater competition.
SICTL's Post Panamax quay cranes can span 18 container rows, capable of handling ships carrying 8,000 TEUs.
SICTL employs the latest container terminal operations technology, nGen, developed by Hutchison Port Holdings, to track and manage the movement of containers through the terminal. It will also operate automated stacking cranes being introduced into the port for the first time. Use of the cranes provides greater on-site container capacity to manage peak demands, improved security and greater employee safety.
Importantly, the terminal is connected by a dedicated rail freight line to Hutchison Logistics Australia’s intermodal terminal being developed at Enfield, 18 kilometres south west of the port. This will greatly reduce the reliance on road transport and help overcome road congestion issues near the port.
