The Common User Facility (CUF) Hardstand at East Arm provides a safe and secure laydown area well suited for fabrication, assembly, storage, commissioning and maintenance activities as well as excellent marine load-in/load-out facilities via a heavy duty Barge Ramp


The CUF is located approximately 18 km by road from Darwin CBD and less than 500 metres from the entry to Darwin Port’s East Arm Wharf. The CUF is central to other major transport and logistic nodes including the Marine Supply Base, Berrimah Rail Freight Terminal and Darwin Business Park.

The CUF provides over 9 hectares of secure heavy duty hardstand for the assembly of modules and storage of equipment to service major projects including oil and gas, marine and Defence activities.  The site has direct access to Berrimah Road being the heavy wide load route linking the Darwin Port and the Marine Supply Base to the major arterial roads of Tiger Brennan Drive and the Stuart Highway.  The hardstand is complemented by the adjoining Barge Ramp which provides direct sea access for the safe and efficient movement of modules and major plant.
