Hutchison Ports, Patrick Stevedores

From 2005 the existing Port Botany terminal was significantly expanded to provide Patrick Stevedores and Hutchison Ports additional wharfs and container handling facilities and is the state’s largest container facility. Patrick Stevedores operates the terminal on the northern side of Brotherson Dock adjacent to Berths 6, 7, 8 and 9. Their terminal occupies a total area of 63 hectares and operates 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Hutchison Ports operates the terminal on Hayes Dock, adjacent to Berths 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. The terminal occupies a total area of 48 hectares.

Since 2012 WolfPeak has been undertaking the independent environmental audits of the construction and operational phases of the Port Botany Expansion area, including Patrick Stevedores and Hutchison Ports new terminals. This is an independent role appointed by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment. These are complex audits, involving multiple planning approvals and EPA Licences wharf, container terminal, rail and road infrastructure and stormwater management and pollution control facilities. We have developed an intimate understanding of port and container terminal operations during these audits which could be applied to similar facilities elsewhere in Australia.
