Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT), part of International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI), plans to start operations at its recently completed terminal in Webb Dock, Melbourne, Australia, in January 2017.

In 2014, VICT signed a 26-year concession with the Port of Melbourne Corporation to build, operate and expand the container terminal at Webb Dock East.

The new terminal at Melbourne’s Webb Dock will introduce fully automated operations from gate to quayside and deliver an estimated capacity of 350,000 TEU in its first phase.

Phase 1 of the terminal will have one berth of 330 meters fitted with three post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes, 23.7 hectares of yard and off-dock area with fully automated operations from the gate to the quayside.

The terminal will be able to handle vessels with a capacity of up to 8,000 standard containers. Servicing the terminal will be a 10 hectare empty container park with a working capacity of around 200,000 standard containers annually.

The second phase, planned to be operational by the end of 2017, will deliver an additional two post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes on a second 330 meter berth.

When fully developed, the 35.4 hectare terminal will have a total of six post-Panamax ship-to -shore cranes on 660 meters of berth, and will be able to handle up to 1.4 million standard containers annually, with the empty container park’s capacity rising to 280,000 standard containers.
