Transhipment & Floating Ports Infrastructure

In high-growth emerging markets, inadequate port infrastructure is constraining local employment opportunities, major project feasibility, and national productivity.

Floating ports are considered highly capital efficient and a particularly economical way to expand port capacity. Floating ports also provide an environmentally friendly way to expand port capacity without the need to dredge and damage environmentally sensitive areas.

National Ports Corporation Limited is an Australian headquartered developer and operator of large-scale floating port, transhipment and shallow draft port solutions.

National Ports is committed to delivering world-class HES performance across its activities and creating an Incident and Injury Free (IIF) culture and environment for the benefit of all.

Our Vision
Our vision is to improve standards of living in emerging markets by facilitating economic growth through the provision of floating port infrastructure.
