Operational Restrictions Set to Lift as 6 Wharf Opens for Business on 22 July 2022
Since September 2020, Napier Port has had an operational restriction in place and been unable to work the bay directly behind the bridge of container vessels, due to the construction of our new 6 Wharf. We’re very pleased to inform you that from 22 July 2022 there will no longer be any restrictions on working any bays at Napier Port.
Napier Port’s new 6 Wharf will open for business on Friday 22 July and is set to immediately benefit our customers. Once fully operational, the new 350-metre wharf will help alleviate ongoing shipping disruption and supply chain congestion across New Zealand. Cargo owners, transport operators and shipping lines will all benefit from 24-hour berth availability across all the port’s wharves, improved operational flexibility and greater shipping capacity. A new state-of-the-art MoorMaster™ vacuum mooring system is set to deliver faster, safer and cleaner mooring capability.
6 Wharf has also provided Napier Port with the opportunity to transform our terminal operations in order to maximise safety and efficiency across our own operations. We looking forward to delivering increased productivity in exchanges and crane rates into the future.
Thank you for your understanding over the last two years. We’re certainly excited to start working our newest wharf next month. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact me on email@example.com or +64 6 833 4413.
