Port Capacity Enhancement Program
Port of Melbourne is embarking on the next stage of its port capacity development, called the Port Capacity Enhancement Program (PCEP).
As part of our stewardship obligations, we need to ensure that port capacity is able to meet the future demands of Victoria’s growing economy.
This is especially important as building new port infrastructure has long lead times, requiring us to start planning now for the longer-term future of the port.
We are now engaging with stakeholders and seeking your feedback on three key drivers of capacity, which are contained in these technical reports:
- Port Capacity
- Ship Fleet Forecast
- Demand Forecast BISOE – Port of Melbourne Container Forecasts and Sensitivities 20220831 (PDF) and BISOE – Port of Melbourne Container Forecasts and Sensitivities 20220831 (Excel file)
The PCEP is a significant potential infrastructure development, aimed at developing a Webb Dock North Container Terminal and creating a long-term future for Tasmanian Trade Terminals. This was outlined in our 2050 Port Development Strategy.
Public online information sessions were held on the three key drivers and this important development.
Tuesday 27 September 2022, 10am-12pm.
Tuesday 27 September 2022, 4.30pm-6.30pm.
Thursday 29 September 2022, 10am-12pm.
Thursday 29 September 2022, 4.30pm-6.30pm.
A final version of the PCEP Stakeholder Engagement presentation is available here for your reference.
Stakeholders are requested to submit written feedback on the three key drivers by Tuesday 18 October 2022.
You can do so through these channels:
- Industry survey – https://aus.typeform.com/INDUSTRYSURVEY
- General public survey – https://aus.typeform.com/GeneralPublic
- Longer-form submissions can also be either emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to GPO Box 2149, Melbourne VIC 3001 Australia.
The findings and feedback from these reports will be used to inform a Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA). We will also engage with stakeholders between December 2022 and March 2023 to seek feedback on the emerging findings from the CBA.
