3rd largest terminal in the world at time of completion
~50% increase in capacity to 85 million-plus tonnes per annum
1,100 workers in construction at project peak
AUD$1.26 billion, the largest construction program in the terminal’s history
- Provide engineering and project management solutions that allow for easy construction within a fully operational facility, with minimal disruption to current activity.
- Carefully integrate multiple disciplines and stakeholder requirements.
- Include a third inloading system, a stockyard expansion, a third outloading system and a fourth berth.
- Upgrade major power and control systems, and provide additional controls to reduce the impact of noise and dust emissions.
- The stockyard volume was increased by 43% within the same terminal footprint.
- Innovative vertical concrete bund walls and two additional stockpile rows improved reclaiming efficiency.
- Automated wagon vibrators were implemented to eliminate manual handling and noise-related health and safety hazards.
- Jetty was widened on a single row of vertical piles to reduce cost and improve constructability.
- The new outloading system included a full 3D anti-collision avoidance system for the yard machines, significantly increasing efficiencies for the stacking and reclaiming operations.
- Winner, Queensland Engineering Excellence Award – Industrial Development and Manufacturing Engineers Australia, 2010
- Winner, 2009 Products and Manufacturing Facilities Excellence Award, Engineers Australia
- Throughput capacity for all major components of the inloading and outloading materials-handling systems reached nameplate capacity almost immediately after commissioning.
- During the project’s peak, approximately 1,100 workers were involved in construction, many of whom were mid-tier local contractors, which boosted the local economy with employment opportunities.
