CentrePort Regeneration – Thorndon Container Wharf Resilience Project 2020

A project to improve the resilience of CentrePort’s Thorndon Container Wharf will be undertaken over the next few months.


The project is part of CentrePort’s regeneration programme that is delivering on our vision of a 21st century logistics supply chain asset to benefit the business, the community and the New Zealand economy.

The project will enhance the resilience of what is a critical supply chain asset for CentrePort’s container operation and its customers including importers, exporters, and shipping lines.

The project builds on the repair work following the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake.

Project Details
The resilience works will involve the insertion of stone columns which will improve the land resilience.   A piling machine will be used and then stone/gravel is driven down into the ground.

The piling will create a clanging sound.  It will be similar to the sound created by the Thorndon Container Wharf repair works in 2017 and Kings Wharf temporary works in 2019.

A sound management plan in place, and monitoring will be conducted to ensure the operation is compliant with Resource Management Act requirements and Council consents.

The work will be limited to between 7:30am to 6pom Monday to Saturday.

Your patience is appreciated while these important resilience works are undertaken.
