BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) plans to expand the existing Hay Point Coal Terminal (HPCT) coal loading facility to increase the throughput capacity from approximately 44 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) to 55 Mtpa.
The proposed HPX3 Project will involve the construction of a new berth (Berth 3), ship loader (Ship loader 3), out loading trestle and conveyors, and reclamation of approximately 10.2 ha of land to the north east of the existing stockyard area. The existing trestle structure will be demolished and removed from the site, once the new out loading trestle and conveyors have been commissioned.
A joint venture between McConnell Dowell and Geosea was awarded the contract for the project's marine works. In turn Maritime Constructions was contracted to provide marine services including the installation of cyclone moorings.
The installation of cyclone moorings for 18 floating plant, to be located in the lee of Victor Island near Hay Point including:
The provision of marine tug services for the movement of barges.
