This vessel will unload gypsum for approximately five days from Saturday night. It will operate 24 hours a day. No daytime noise limit is applicable, but noise limits do apply during the evening (6pm to 10pm) and night (10pm to 7am or 8am Sundays & Public Holidays). The previous gypsum unloading in October exceeded the night time noise limits set by the EPA. The gypsum importer (Knauf Plasterboard Pty Ltd) was issued a formal warning by the EPA after the October unloading for various breaches of its environment protection licence.
The vessel is berthed right next to the old Glebe Island Bridge.
