Fremantle Port issues EOI for new Victoria Quay Ro-Ro facility

  • EOI issued for new terminal from private sector companies

Australia’s Fremantle Port has issued an expression of interest (EOI) from the private sector to construct and operate a new Ro-Ro terminal on Victoria Quay.

Fremantle, Western Australia’s largest automotive and Ro-Ro port, handles over 120,000 vehicle imports and 180,000 tonnes of other Ro-Ro cargo annually. These trades are accommodated currently at the eastern end of Victoria Quay and on North Quay Berths 11 and 12 in the Inner Harbour.

Fremantle’s automotive and Ro-Ro trades had grown at average annual rates of 8 percent and 10.6 percent respectively over the past 10 years, according to Fremantle Ports’ CEO Chris Leatt-Hayter.

“The development of a dedicated terminal for the automotive and Ro-Ro trades on Victoria Quay presents an outstanding opportunity to service this important and fast growing market,” said Leatt-Hayter.

“Fremantle Ports’ aim is to develop capacity to ensure the port can service shipping lines and importers in a way that is comparable with leading automotive and Ro-Ro terminals internationally.”

In a statement, Fremantle said that the invitation for expressions of interest seeks parties interested in “developing and operating a world-class terminal, with the use of innovative design and improved operating practices to ensure sustainable growth”.

Long-term tenure is available over a 10-hectare site.
