NSW Ports Bulk Liquids Berth1 Maintenance Shutdown Dates

The next BLB1 shutdown will be two, one week periods. BLB2 will be fully operational for shipping during this period.  NSW Ports apologise for any inconvenience that the shutdowns may cause and advise that the NSW Ports contractor Freyssinet will be onsite for 2 years installing the cathodic protection on the marine structures at BLB1. The shutdowns are required to perform hot work that can only be done when the berth is ship free. The work is crucial in preventing corrosion and extending the life of the berth structures.
