Baulderstone and Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH) today announced the finalisation of the contract to deliver work at Port of Brisbane’s newest container terminal.
Baulderstone General Manager Queensland, Stephen Green, said that the Port of Brisbane is a major driver in the economy and Baulderstone is pleased to be a part of the continued development of this critical piece of infrastructure.
“Baulderstone is looking forward to working with HPH, a major player in marine infrastructure globally to deliver berth 11 at the Port of Brisbane,” Mr Green said. “Our scope of works includes in-ground infrastructure, pavement works and rail beams, all of which will be critical to the creation of a new functional, durable and sustainable berth.”
“We are very pleased to be working with Baulderstone, one of Australia’s leading building and engineering companies with significant experience in marine works,” said Raymond Law, Managing Director, Australasia and North Asia of HPH. “The signing of the contract is the first step in the development of berth 11, which will provide a much needed boost to the capabilities of the Port of Brisbane.”
Baulderstone’s marine building expertise dates back to the 1960s and the company has since delivered infrastructure at major ports along the eastern seaboard, with the most recent being the new terminal at Port Botany in Sydney.
Hutchison Port Holdings is the world’s leading port investor, developer and operator. The HPH network or port operations comprises 315 berths in 52 ports, spanning 26 countries throughout Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, the Americas and Australasia.
Berth 11 is expected to be operational in 2012 with berth 12 to follow in 2014.
