Auckland ready for larger ships

Auckland ready for larger ships

The work increases the maximum vessel draught at the northern berth from 11.7 m to 13 m. This is in addition to the maximum vessel draught for the inner berth of 12.5 m, allowing the simultaneous handling of two large ships at the terminal.

“The deepening of the northern berth ensures we can continue to accommodate our customers evolving requirements, which include a move to larger vessels. The investment will ensure sufficient depth along the full length of the Fergusson terminal to reliably accommodate vessels as draughts deepen,” said Ports of Auckland chief executive, Tony Gibson.
