Lyttelton Port of Christchurch - Week 2 Remaning Strong

Wednesday 02 March 2011 - 1700 hrs

CUSTOMER NOTICE

WEEK 2 - REMAINING STRONG

Lyttelton Port of Christchurch (LPC) would like to advise all customers the port’s core services are operational following the 6.3 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday 22 February 2011.

Oil Berth

The oil berth continues to operate, the Atlantic Lily is on the Oil Berth today discharging fuel and will depart at Thursday 03 March.. Further fuel vessels are scheduled over the 7 days. After the recent aftershocks regular assessments of the oil berth facility will continue to be undertaken.

Containers

PIL’s Kota Permata is in Port today and working well. The MSC Tasmania is due in on Thursday 03 March.

To assist with clearing backlog we request customers to prioritise the delivery of export containers to the Port in order of vessel arrival.

CityDepot

CityDepot is continuing to operate and has had a steady flow of receival and delivery today. We are currently working with KiwiRail to resume normal rail services as soon as possible. We are also working hard to ensure that auxiliary services will be up and running as soon as possible.

Tunnel

The Lyttelton Road Tunnel is open but restricted to emergency vehicles, essential services, container deliveries and permitted residents. If you are carrying dangerous goods can you please contact tunnel control on 03 384 3116 with expected timings. We have been advised that the tunnel will be closed early tomorrow morning at 0100 for heavy traffic transfer.

General Cargo

Over the next week the inner harbour will be brought back to full commission. A repair programme is in place for bringing No. 2 berth back up to Class 1 Highway operations by Saturday 05 March for the loading of the Louise Bulker a log vessel. Our next car vessel the Spring Sky is due on Sunday 07 March and will discharge vehicles and machinery across No.7 berth.

Dry Dock

The New Plymouth Tug The Kupe was in the dry dock at the time of the earthquake; it remained in the dry dock and was not damaged. The dock remained water tight and work is continuing on the tug to ready it for exit when completed. Structural checks are required to assess the Dry Dock's ongoing operations going forward, it is hoped these checks will be completed within the next working week. With resources stretched we are working as hard and quickly as possible. Page 2

We would like to thank all of our customers for their understanding and patience in what has been a stressful and busy time for everyone.

Kind regards
