2.8 times the previous capacity
3 options for terminal size provided
- Patrick Terminal wanted to redevelop its Fremantle Container Terminal as part of the lease negotiations with Fremantle Ports, part of the Western Australian government's trading enterprise.
- The main objectives of the redevelopment were to improve the efficiency of operations and increase the capacity of the terminal to a minimum of 1.4 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) from the existing 500,000 TEUs.
- The project called for the demolition of the existing workshop, administration buildings, and much of the existing infrastructure.
- The container yard needed to be reconfigured to suit the new container-handling equipment, and new, modern, technologically sophisticated facilities and services were developed.
- Hatch was appointed as part of a joint venture to carry out the concept design of the new Fremantle Container Terminal.
- Three options were prepared, with berth lengths of 646 metres, 720 metres, and 960 metres, respectively.
- The strategies for each option included master planning and layouts of buildings and gates; concept design of buildings and the workshop; and layouts of the container yard, roadways, reefer towers, and other structures.
- The requirements allowed for future expansion of the terminal and port, meeting the functional requirements for offices and facilities, and are to be delivered, fit for purpose, in a way that minimizes capital expenditures while offering controlled access and better security.
- A major brownfield container-terminal redevelopment was planned.
- Staged development allowed existing operations to continue while redevelopment work proceeds.
