Global Ports Forum Awards
– Winner: Port/Terminal of the Year in Australia/New Zealand
Aurecon’s innovative design expanded the outloading bulk materials handling system and bolstered the facility’s ability to withstand significant weather events, protecting the longevity of the terminal and minimising disruption to the supply chain.
A tight construction market required a creative solution to reduce the cost of materials, on-site construction costs and delivery time.
The most significant outcome of the third expansion was the increase in nameplate throughput capacity from 44 million to 55 million tonnes every year without adding to the existing stockpile footprint.
The key to success was bringing an integrated understanding of facility design and port operations, which allowed Aurecon to find the most effective approach to meet the client’s needs.
