Dublin Port Company has commenced formal public consultation on the 3FM Project to complete the port development and bring it to its final capacity by 2040.
This period of public consultation will be open until 28 April.
This latest consultation phase will include several public information days in Poolbeg, Ringsend, and Clontarf where the Dublin Port team can discuss the plans with members of the local communities.
The 3FM project, which will provide 20 per cent of the necessary capacity by 2040, is concentrated on Dublin Port lands on the Poolbeg Peninsula on the south side of the bay.

Among the aims of the project is to become the largest container terminal in Ireland, with a projected annual container capacity of 353,000 TEU.
Project ambitions also include the construction of a new 12.6 hectare Ro-Ro terminal which will take trucks with containers to accommodate the increasing volume of traffic going through the port.
According to the port of Dublin, “the Poolbeg peninsula houses the greatest cluster of major utility operations in Ireland, with the largest wastewater works, the biggest waste-to-energy plant as well as power stations and part of the National Oil Reserve.”
The 3FM project follows on from the first two Masterplan phases. These included the Alexandra Basin Redevelopment, which is nearing completion, and MP2 which has recently commenced construction.
In January 2022, it was announced that GISGRO won the tender of 3D digital mapping system for Dublin Port Company that included digitising work and tailored port management solution.
