Port Botany Closures – 15/10/14

Dear Clients, We wish to advise you on current Port Botany conditions.

The Sydney area was subject to extreme weather conditions overnight with gale force winds and heavy rain.

Terminal operations in Port Botany have been heavily impacted with quayline operations ceasing at 2030 last night and yard and gate operations at 2100. At this point operations have not resumed.

There has been significant damage in the yard with several container stacks blown over and two vessels alongside the terminal have parted their moorings.

We are currently assessing the damage to the terminal. Windy conditions are expected to continue this morning and the harbour authorities are considering ordering the two vessels out to sea until conditions improve.

At this point we terminal operations are due to resume at 1400hrs subject to conditions remaining stable.
