Napier Port is proposing to build a new wharf that is 350 metres long and approximately 34 metres wide, supported by piles in the seafloor. The wharf would run parallel to the existing container terminal.

The wharf, berth pocket (where the ship sits) and swing basin (where the ship turns) would be built in stage one, while dredging the shipping channel to accommodate larger ships will only happen as ships get progressively larger. It is expected that the dredging will be undertaken in stages over a number of years, as and when shipping company demand requires it.

The expected time-frame for consenting and construction is three to four years.

It was estimated the wharf and dredging programme would cost around NZ$125 million (A$114 million), including the construction of the wharf and dolphins (separate mooring bollards), and the initial dredging of the berth and swing basin.

In April 2019 the business case for the programme was approved by the Napier Port board. The revised cost of the programme in the business case is NZ$170 million - NZ$190 million.

The project is planned to commence at the end of 2019, with completion expected in 2022.
