  • 12. Utah Point Development – SY1 Stockyard One
  • 13. Utah Point Recognition • 2011 WA Engineering Excellence Award Resource Development Category • 2011 National Engineering Excellence Award • 2012 Bulk Materials Handling Award • 2012 Port of the Year
  • 14. Utah Point Development – SY1 Discussion Points • Project overview • Positive outcomes o Economic benefit o Community benefit o Environmental • Project implementation
  • 15. Utah Point Multi-User Bulk Export Facility Key Statistics • 9 Mtpa approved capacity (road haul) • Expandable to 20Mtpa • Multiple products including iron ore, manganese and chromite • Purpose built 10km access road • 13 independent stockpiles over 24ha • Capable of handling 120k DWT vessels • 20 month construction period
  • 16. Economic Benefits - New Export Opportunities New and emerging junior miners have access to public berthing facilities with the construction of the Facility. Nameplate capacity was achieved within 6 months, delivering 9Mtpa of trucked ores worth an estimated export value of $1.5 billion. Future expansion of the Facility has been considered in the design of Stockyard II.
  • 17. Economic Benefits – Operational Efficiency The Facility enhances existing Port Hedland port services to grow WA’s export potential via: • Smaller vessels to access the inner harbour during low tides without impacting other harbour users. • Smaller vessels allowed to berth due to construction over tunnel. • Cavotec Mooring System to improve moor & release times, while increasing available berth length.
  • 18. Import Replacement Travelling shiploader & tripper conveyor • A unique PCM strategy bound by complex, schedule critical project requirements. • Multiple contractors to erect the structure • Opportunities for local suppliers in major • Capital equipment manufacturing
  • 19. Originality & Ingenuity Innovative engineering practices are evident across the Facility: • • • • • 9Mtpa trucked multiple ore products. Stockyard constructed on marine mud. Original load out system. Cavotec Automatic Mooring System. Water conservation & recirculation.
  • 20. Environmental Credentials Environmentally Sustainable Engineering in Practice Through collaborative planning sustainable technology initiatives and engineering innovations, the new Utah Facility has: • reduced dust and noise emissions to the residents of Port Hedland, • removed road train traffic from populated areas, • eliminated adverse groundwater and harbour contamination risks, and • committed to protecting and restoring mangrove habitats.
  • 21. Improvements in Quality of Life Relocation of manganese and chromite and export away from Port Hedland’s west end to Utah Point. • Reduced Dust to township • Reduced Noise • Reduced Heavy Vehicle Traffic in town
  • 22. Environmental Protection Water conservation and quality • 45,000m3 recirculation water pond. • Installation of bentonite barrier layer and sub-surface drainage system. • Materials handling and truck wash down facilities. • Sealed concrete wharf.

  • 29. Lumsden Point Need Iron ore Export Capacity Growth since 2004 175% From 4 berths to 11 Non-iron ore trade capacity growth since 2004 nil Remains 3 berths • There is a relationship between iron ore exports and general cargo trade volumes. • WA Freight Study (commissioned by the WA Department of Transport) estimates general cargo trade volumes (including port and road transport) are between 1 and 1.5% of iron ore exports.
  • 30. Existing Eastside Facilities
  • 31. Non Iron Ore Trade Overview • Port Hedland Berths 1, 2 and 3 General & Non-Iron Ore Bulk Cargo: o Fuel o Salt o Copper Concentrates o Containers o General Cargo o Project Cargo • Lumsden Point is required to facilitate the growth in all these cargoes

  • 33. Lumsden Requirement Overview • Cargo forecast, including general cargo, to grow from 4.9mtpa in 2011/12 to 9.2mtpa 2016/17 • Efficient capacity at existing berths is around 6.5mtpa o Capacity will be reached in 2013 • Significant congestion of the berths expected beyond this timeframe
  • 34. General cargo trade allocation after development of Lumsden Point Berths 1, 2 and 3 Lumsden Point Bulk concentrates (non-containerised) Bulk concentrates (containerised) Petroleum products and bulk liquids Break bulk and project cargo Salt Cement Acid and caustic soda Scrap metal Ammonium nitrate Other containerised cargo
  • 35. Lumsden Concept • Two berths • 430m berth length • 20 hectares immediately behind berth • 30 hectares available to port users near Great Northern Highway (GNH) • Direct link to GNH with High Wide loads
  • 36. Lumsden Concept Scope of Project • Dredging to 12mCD o • 1750 m of dredge bunds o o • Steel pile Precast Concrete Deck 2.7 km Access Road o o o • 1100m rock cored (offshore) 650m grits spoil (onshore) 430m Wharf Deck o o • 2milllion m3 onshore Main Roads Standard High Wide Loads Direct link to GNH Utilities o o o Power Water Comms
