Ship lift to be built in Darwin

Concept drawing of the planned ship lift facility

The Territory Government will build the largest ship lift in northern Australia, paving the way for hundreds of jobs and positioning Darwin as a major international and national player in the marine services industry.

Territory-owned and headquartered Paspaley Group is partnering with the Territory Government in the $400 million project.

The ship lift at East Arm will bring $260 million into the Northern Territory economy every year. It will create about 100 jobs during the construction phase, lead to an expansion of the ship building and repairs and maintenance industry, and generate around 400 direct and indirect ongoing jobs during its operation.
