Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT), Melbourne, Australia
78 Webb Dock Drive
Port Melbourne VIC 3207, Australia
Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT) was appointed by the Port of Melbourne in 2014 to design, construct and operate Australia’s first fully automated container terminal. Located at Webb Dock East, VICT’s unique location on the bay side of the port, unhindered by the West Gate Bridge, means a faster turnaround time for imports and exports and easier berthing for ships. For the first time, 8,000+ TEU vessels can access the Port of Melbourne for service by VICT.
In March 2017, VICT welcomed its first vessel and now is fully operational with five automatic neo-Panamax ship-to-shore (STS) and 20 Automatic Stacking Cranes (ASCs) and 11 Automatic Container Carriers (ACCs). VICT delivers the extra capacity, longevity and efficiency that the Port of Melbourne needs to support continued growth with 1 million+ TEUs.
VICT’s dedication to innovation and investment in leading technologies was publicly acknowledged in 2017 by winning the SMART Infrastructure Project Award at the National Infrastructure Awards, as well as, the Supply Chain Innovation & Technology at the 2017 DCN Australian Shipping and Maritime Awards.
Sustainability design initiatives were considered from the very beginning, by both ICTSI and VICT Leadership. This commitment was rewarded through achieving two of the highest possible rating categories of “Leading” from the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) for both sustainable design and build.
VICT’s development delivers a leading global standard in modern container terminal design, innovation and operations, using best-proven technologies to deliver automated operations from gate to quayside.
