Roger Johnston - Port Hedland Port Authority - CASE STUDY: Facilitating Trade Growth and Optimising Operations at Port Hedland Port Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Facilitating trade growth and optimising operations at Port Hedland
  • 2. Port Hedland - Historical trade growth 4140 vessels 12/13 4800+ vessels 13/14 370+ Mt throughput# 2013/14 Average 20% annual growth in throughput (2009 – 2014) * 280.2 Mt iron ore # forecasting (half year = 173 Mt) 288.4 Mt throughput* 2012/13
  • 3. Port Hedland - Historical trade growth * forecasting 27% in 2014 • WA produces over one quarter of the world’s iron ore (26% in 2012). • WA export volumes account for 42% of global shipments once domestic use is taken out. Port Hedland - 24%* Rest of World - 76% Global Iron Ore Sea Bourne Trade (2013)
  • 4. Port Hedland - Iron ore export volumes - 100 200 300 400 500 600 All of WA Port Hedland ‘95 ‘96 ‘97 ‘98 ‘99 ‘01 ‘02 ‘03 ‘04 ‘05 ‘06 ‘07 ’08 ’09 ‘10 ’11 ‘12 ‘13 ’14 ‘15 ‘16 ‘17 Million tonnes Financial Year
  • 5. Port Hedland - Economic importance • WA mining royalties forecast for 2013 -14 = $5.8B  $3B derived through PH exports • Total value of exports for 2014 FY = $40B * * Iron ore price at $110/tonne

  • 10. Operational enhancements at Port Hedland • Provides for minimum 90cm clearance • Upgrades to DUKC system (Series V) Dynamic Under Keel Clearance System Tidal Range: 7m Current: 2-3 knots Depths: 14.8m (IH), 15m -16.6m (channel) • Targeted dredge campaign:  Removal of siltation allowance  High spot dredging in Inner Harbour  Revision of tidal model Net average benefit = 71cm = 14,000t/vessel = $1.5 million/vessel Specialised Dredging Campaign
  • 11. Operational enhancements at Port Hedland • Increased departure window from 3.5 hours to 4.5 hours - with 30min gaps • Capacity to increase number of vessel departures from 6 to 8 Increased tidal departure window as a result of Port enhancements Increased towage requirements and provisions • On departure, four tugs escort to Hunt Point, three tugs escort to Beacon No. 30/31 • Channel width at Hunt Point = 183m • Nineteen tugs required to manage ≥ 460Mtpa • In 2009: 10 tugs (stern-drive) 2014: 15-16 tugs (8-9 rotor tugs)

  • 17. Ports Review – Pilbara PortsAuthority Operational Benefits: • Single entity oversight of all shipping across the Pilbara region • Leverage operational capabilities, e.g. Dredge Manager, and engineering oversight Development Benefits: • Single point of contact for proponents • Streamlining of processes, e.g. environmental and DA processes Strategic Objectives As of 1 July 2014 - consolidates all ports across (11 in total) the Pilbara region Dampier Port Authority (2012-13) = 180.4 mt Iron ore = 148.4 Mt Gas products = 21.7 Mt
