Dimension Data wins Port of Melbourne deal

Dimension Data has won the contract to provide the IT infrastructure for Victoria International Container Terminal’s (VICT) upcoming $550 million terminal at Port of Melbourne’s Webb Dock East.

The new terminal is scheduled to commence operation in the fourth quarter. It will be designed to be one of the most automated and advanced container terminals in the world, handling more than 1 million 20-foot equivalent unit containers per year.

Dimension Data has been engaged to deliver every element of the technical infrastructure up to the application level, including site-wide Wi-Fi, connectivity from the data centre to the site, fibre infrastructure within the site and a customs-grade CCTV network.

The company will also implement the on-site data centre and provide IaaS from its Melbourne Managed Cloud Platform.

Dimension Data provided similar infrastructure to the highly automated London Gateway shipping terminal.

VICT CEO Anders Dømmestrup said Dimension Data was chosen for the project because a tight construction schedule required a partner with the experience required to deliver on time.

“Ultimately, the technical infrastructure will be supporting all of VICT’s mission-critical information systems and we trust Dimension Data to deliver our distinct requirements and draw on the unique expertise of its global counterparts,” he said.
