Innovation and sustainability the Quay to success
The Port of Devonport, through Project QuayLink, will play a pivotal role in supporting its customers and the Tasmanian Government’s world-leading 200% renewable energy target by 2040.
Project QuayLink will see the provision of electric vehicle charging stations for the local community and visitors, LNG ship refuelling berths and renewable energy shore power. Along with improved traffic management, and reducing congestion in the area, Project QuayLink is setting sustainable standards for future infrastructure developments.
The Port of Devonport will be one of seven ports in Australia vying for EcoPorts accreditation, the European certification system, with the ports of Burnie and Hobart to follow.
To enable Terminal 3 to be developed successfully, Project QuayLink collaborated with Environmental Scientists, Tasmania’s Environment Protection Authority (EPA) to seek innovative ways to enable dredging at Berth 3E on the eastern side of the river.
