Shipping companies welcome dredging and deepening of Port Taranaki

The dredging and deepening of Westgate’s Port Taranaki is being welcomed by many shipping companies. That is the assessment of Westgate’s CEO Roy Weaver, who says with ship sizes increasing at a rapid pace and expectations for them to get even bigger in the future, it is necessary for the port to be deepened. Roy Weaver says Westgate Port Taranaki is hoping to appoint a contractor for the project within the month.
