Situated about 25 kilometres north of Bowen in North Queensland, the Port of Abbot Point is Australia’s most northerly coal port. The port is of significant strategic value to NQBP and the State, as there are very few locations along Queensland's eastern seaboard where deep water (>15m) is so close in-shore.
The primary infrastructure at the port is the Abbot Point Coal Terminal (APCT), which was commissioned in 1984 and has been exporting coal continuously since that time. Since 2006 the terminal has been undergoing constant expansion. In November 2007, the first stage of planned expansions at the terminal increased capacity from 15 to 21 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) (X21 Expansion). The works included additional coal stockpiles and the addition of a third stacker/reclaimer at the terminal.
During 2009 the second rail in-loader was completed whilst the first rail in-loader was upgraded during 2010. By September 2010 a second offshore berth and second shiploader were expected to be operational, as well as a further stacker/reclaimer and additional coal stockpiles. Throughout 201-11 the remainder of the X50 project to increase the terminal capacity to 50 mtpa will be completed, including three new stacker/reclaimers (one replaces existing equipment), and the upgrading of existing yard machinery to match the speeds and capacity of the newly installed equipment.
Facilities: At the completion of the X50 Expansion APCT will comprise:
two rail inloading facilities; six coal stockpile rows all greater than 1km in length; inloading and outloading conveyors; and two berths and two shiploaders 2.75 kilometres offshore.
Trains transport coal by bottom dumping wagons to a rail inloading facility at APCT on a balloon rail loop. Once unloaded, the coal is then conveyed from the unloading facility to the stockpile area and stacked by one of the stacker/reclaimer units. The stockyard is expected to be capable of holding more than two million tonnes of coal.
During shiploader operations, coal is delivered to a large surge bin before being conveyed along the trestle to the wharf where it is then loaded into ships via the shiploading unit.

CEO: Mr Vincent Tremaine
General Manager, Marine Operations: Capt. Carl Kavina
General Manager, Business Development: Mr Stewart Lammin
Flinders Ports operates seven of South Australia’s ports…. Port Adelaide, Port Lincoln, Port Pirie, Thevenard, Port Giles, Wallaroo and Klein Point.
Flinders Ports is committed to improving port services to the benefit of existing trades and assisting in the development of new business. The Company continues to expand its port facilities to meet the demands of its customers.
With the development and growth of the mining sector in South Australia, Flinders Ports is looking to develop all its ports to offer a competitive supply chain solution to the industry.
One of the projects has been a staged development of a bulk precinct located at the inner harbour in Port Adelaide. The development has incorporated upgrades to wharf drainage systems; construction of a bulk ship loader, storage facilities and a rail line directly into the precinct and a weighbridge and wash down facilities.
A Gottwald mobile harbour crane and a Rotainer have also been purchased for the bulk precinct to load the containerised cargo. The Rotainer, supported by a crane, lifts, lowers and rotates a full container into a ship’s hold.
Flinders Ports is investigating the use of the Rotainer for the regional ports, particularly for the loading of concentrates such as zinc and copper. A tipping spreader system is also in operation at the container terminal at Port Adelaide.
The seven ports are equipped to handle a range of bulk and break bulk cargoes with undeveloped land available, providing opportunities to further develop port infrastructure.
Available land in the Inner Harbour at Port Adelaide has direct access to wharf facilities and bulk loading infrastructure. This area is also linked by road and rail access to Adelaide’s industrial areas and the container terminal at Outer Harbour.
Land in Outer Harbour Port Adelaide has direct access to the container terminal and road and rail facilities linking the Outer Harbour with intra and interstate origins and destinations.
An extensive road and railway network servicing a catchment area extending across South Australia to southern New South Wales and western Victoria enables Flinders Ports to offer a vast range of receival, storage and transport options.

CONTAINER CARGOES
DP World Adelaide is the container terminal operator servicing South Australia. The terminal boasts excellent direct on-dock road and rail links with two berths providing 649m of quayline and 14.2m water depth alongside at low water. Productivity at the terminal has been boosted with a Post-Panamax crane having the capacity to “twin-lift” two 6m containers at the same time, and at faster operational speeds.
The container terminal provides customers with state-of-the-art facilities and services, ensuring the fast turnaround and efficient movement of goods. Intermodal facilities are provided, integrating the container terminal with the national road and rail system, enabling the efficient transfer of cargo.
A transition area provides storage for 6,251 TEUs and includes 318 reefer plugs.

Berthing Facilities
East Arm Wharf: - Multi-user berth designed to handle livestock exports, dry and liquid bulk imports and exports, containerised, breakbulk, general and heavy lift cargoes.
Berth details: Type: sheet pile/solid fill.
Length: 490m. Depth alongside: 12.0m chart datum for 300m. Remaining 190m – 12.2m chart datum. Under keel clearance alongside: 0.5m.
Shipping: Design vessel capacity: 100,000 WT/110,000t Displacement. Beam, LOA, Unlimited.
Arrival & Departure Draft: 10.8m + tide – 2.0m UKC.
Common user facilities: 10 hectares of sealed hardstand. 8 hectares of bunded area for future reclamation. 4,000sqm cargo transit shed with dry bulk cargo handling facilities and 20 reefer outlets. 24 reefer outlets on hardstand. Container washdown and pre-tripping facilities. Quarantine & Customs services. Dry bulk cargo import facilities. Quarantine waste collection and disposal. 784m of continuous berth face. A 16m wide railway access embankment to accommodate the north/south railway. An Intermodal Container facility incorporating:
• Access to 200m of the existing common user berth facility for container vessels.
• A nominal 200m x 200m intermodal container terminal yard with 924 TEU ground slot capacity. The facility has two rail sidings, rail gantry cranes and straddle carriers.
• Provision of a dedicated bulk liquids berth by extending the general purpose berth by an additional 154m to provide a total of 754m continuous berth face plus mooring dolphins.
Cranage: IHI/Sumitomo single-lift, rail mounted gantry crane. Maximum outreach from fenders - 32m. Height from deck level to underside of boom - 30m. Lifting capacity: 40t @32m outreach. 50t @23m outreach. 70t @14.450m outreach.
A $24m bulk materials handling facility at East Arm including a 850m rail spur, 1500TPH rail bottom dump station, stockpiles, haul roads and a 2,000TPH travelling gantry shiploader on the East Arm berth.
Please note all the limits are currently provisional.
The shiploader is generally designed for a lower end panamax class ship.
The maximum beam 32.0m is set by the outreach and loading shuttle travel of the shiploader.
The maximum airdraft based on a MHWS tidal range of 6.94m is 15.5m.
The long travel of the shiploader is 152m - this is the determining factor in the max LOA.
Due to the Port of Darwin tidal range there are specific tidal windows for port movements of loaded bulk carriers and draft restrictions subject to the prevailing tidal conditions. Maintaining a 0.5m UKC in berth at all times the minimum loaded draft alongside can get as low as 11.7m on chart datum. However subject to prevailing tidal heights greater loaded drafts are able to be achieved subject to application to the Harbour Master.
With the tidal range there are also airdraft restrictions for the loader which will affect the arrival condition of the performing vessel.
Master Plan 2030
The East Arm Wharf Facilities Masterplan 2030 is the blue print for the East Arm Wharf (EAW) and adjacent strategic land and sea areas for the next 20 years. Using a staged development approach, the Masterplan will realise facilities at East Arm Wharf that will place the Territory at the competitive export edge and ultimately realise the Territory’s vision – Port of Darwin: Australia’s Northern Gateway of Choice.
The Masterplan 2030 was developed to accommodate the projected trade and vessel demands through East Arm Wharf and to facilitate trade growth in order to enhance local and regional economic development. It is designed to shape the land and sea-based activities at East Arm Wharf to the year 2030. The Masterplan provides an overview of the ultimate expansion of EAW, and the Development Plans show staged improvements over the next twenty years. The key outcome of the Masterplan is to provide certainty to the Darwin Port Corporation in its future land requirements. East Arm is also home to Darwin's future Marine Supply Base which will provide dedicated support services to the region's growing oil and gas industry.

Commercial Principles
Fremantle Ports operates on commercial principles as a Western Australian Government Trading Enterprise with responsibility for facilitating trade through the State’s biggest general cargo port, the Port of Fremantle.
The Inner Harbour at Fremantle handles almost all of the container trade for Western Australia. It also provides facilities for livestock exports, motor vehicle imports, other general cargo trades, cruise ships and visiting naval vessels.
The Outer Harbour, 20km to the south at Kwinana, is one of Australia’s major bulk cargo ports handling grain, petroleum, liquid petroleum gas, alumina, mineral sands, fertilisers, coal, iron ore, sulphur and other bulk commodities.
The Port of Fremantle is a mix of facilities and services managed by Fremantle Ports and private operators. Fremantle Ports provides and maintains shipping channels, navigation aids, cargo wharves at common users areas and leased terminals, the Fremantle Passenger Terminal, road and rail transport infrastructure in the port area, moles and seawalls and other port infrastructure such as storage sheds, water, power and public amenities.
Three of the jetties in the Outer Harbour are operated by private companies, generally under special Agreement Acts with the State. They are the Alcoa, BP and CBH Jetties.
The Kwinana Bulk Jetty and the Kwinana Bulk Terminal are operated by Fremantle Ports.
Services such as towage, pilotage (under contract to Fremantle Ports), line boats and bunkering are provided by the private sector.
Fremantle Ports also cooperates with Commonwealth Government agencies responsible for customs, quarantine and maritime safety.

The Port of Hay Point is one of the largest coal export ports in the world, and is situated about 40 km south of Mackay. The port comprises two separate coal export terminals, Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal (DBCT), leased from the State Government by Prime Infrastructure Trust (PIT) and the Hay Point Coal Terminal (HPCT), owned by BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) and operated by Hay Point Services for BMA. Together the two terminals service mines in the Central Bowen Basin region of Queensland.
The mines are linked to the port terminals through an integrated rail port network. Queensland Rail (QR) owns the below rail component (track, signalling and overhead wiring) of the rail network which provides access to above rail service providers (rolling stock and locomotives). The above rail service provider is QR Network.
In June 2009 DBCT completed its 7X expansion project, bringing the terminal’s nameplate capacity to 85 mtpa. BMA is progressing the approved HPX3 expansion from 44 mpta to 55 mtpa. BMA is investigating further expansions in the longer term to a possible 75 mtpa.
Facilities:
Infrastructure at the port consists of purpose-built rail inloading facilities, onshore stockyards and offshore jetties leading to wharves. The offshore wharves are serviced by conveyor systems which run the coal from the stockyard to the wharves situated about 3.8km out to sea and allow loading in deep water.
DBCT consists of four berths, serviced by three manually operated shiploaders with a loading capacity of 7,200tph.
The HPCT wharf is 1.8km offshore. It has two berths and is owned and operated by the BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance. Berth #1 is serviced by a luffing boom gantry with telescopic chute with an average loading capacity of 4,000 tph with a maximum of 6,000 tph. Berth #2 is serviced by a rail mounted shuttle boom with telescopic chute and an average loading capacity of 4,000 tph with a maximum of 6,000tph.
Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ) provides marine pilotage services for the terminals, with most transfers to and from ships via helicopter with pilot launch utilised for all other occasions. Each terminal has its own towage arrangements in place.

Situated about 100 kilometres north of Townsville, the Port of Lucinda is dedicated to the export of raw sugar from the Ingham sugar-growing district. It is located to the southeast of Hinchinbrook Channel, which separates Hinchinbrook Island from the mainland.
Infrastructure at the port comprises on-shore sugar handling and storage facilities and a single trestle jetty and conveyor running to an off-shore berth and shiploader. The port is characterised by its long off-shore jetty, which is 5.8 kilometres long.
The bulk terminal at Lucinda was opened in 1958 and construction of the existing offshore wharf was completed in 1979. A third shed was completed in 1977, bringing the total sugar storage capacity to 230,000 tonnes. This new berth allowed direct access by shipping from the sea, rather than the use of Hinchinbrook Channel, due to its depth restrictions.
Facilities:
The port terminal is operated by Lucinda Bulk Sugar Terminal, a subsidiary of Queensland Sugar Limited (QSL). The terminal is supplied by the Victoria and Macknade sugar mills.
The single berth can accommodate fully loaded Panamax class vessels. The major cargo destinations are Canada and Malaysia.
The jetty is one of the longest of its type in the world, extending for 5.8 kilometres and dipping 1.2 metres over its length as it follows the curvature of the earth. Sugar takes 22 minutes to travel along the conveyor from the on-shore storage sheds to the shiploader.
General cargo is exported to Palm and Orpheus Islands from the barge ramp in the port.

Located on the north-west coast of Cape York Peninsula, the Port of Weipa's main activity is the export of bauxite (aluminium ore) from the Rio Tinto Alcan (RTA) mine.
There are four berths located at the Port of Weipa: Lorim Point East Wharf - managed by RTA for bauxite export; Lorim Point West Wharf - managed by RTA for bauxite export; Evans Landing Wharf - managed for RTA by Shell for import of fuel and oil; and Humbug Point Wharf - managed for RTA by Perkins Gulf Freight Services for import of general cargo.
Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ) provides pilotage and NGBP undertakes regular dredging to maintain the shipping channels.
Operated by RTA, the commercial facilities at Weipa consist of onshore bauxite handling, processing and stockpiling facilities and conveyors running to Lorim Point East and West wharves for shiploading. RTA refurbsihed the Lorim Point Wharf and constructed a second shiploader in 2005 on this wharf resulting in an increase of its shiploading capacity. Other port facilities include Humbug Point Wharf which handles imports of general cargo and Evans Landing Wharf which is the centre for fuel imports. There are also berths for tugs operated by Svitzer Australasia that are located on the inside of the Lorim Point East Wharf.
