Seaport of Sydney
The seaport of Sydney in Australia is also called Port Botany, it’s deep-water container port located in the Botany Bay in the city of Sydney, not far from the airport. The seaport accepts first and foremost containers with solid products, to a lesser extent those with liquid products, including crude oil and natural gas. It is the second largest container port in Australia.
In the 1960s, goods were accepted at Port Jackson, the biggest natural port in the world situated in the bay (called the Sydney Harbour). As containers gained in widespread use, it was obvious that the existing port, the largest in the city of Australia, wouldn’t be able to handle the new type of cargo and would require additional port devices. Decisions were made to develop the area near the airport and to create the entire complex.
- The construction of Port Botany began in 1971, and the first container terminal (northern) was built in 1979.
- The south container terminal was opened in 1982.
- The third container terminal at Port Botany was finished in June 2011.
