Key port upgrade
Small but important parts of the Galilee logistics chain arrive at port
Wednesday 06 September 2017  

Machinery and parts required for Adani’s multi million dollar capacity upgrade to their Abbot Point Coal Terminal (APCT) has begun arriving in Townsville overnight.

The port is central to Adani’s plan to build the Carmichael mega mine in the Galilee Basin, and then export the coal direct to India for power generation.

Back in February Adani completed renovations to a 30 year old Marine Offloading Facility (MOF) at Abbot point which has given them the flexibility to transfer large equipment and materials to the port by barge rather than by road.

Back in 2011, Adani purchased the entire APCT on a 99-year lease from the State Government for a staggering $1.829 billion.

While the APCT is a critical piece of the infrastructure required to open up the Galilee Basin it is already a functioning multi-use port facility handling coal from mines in the Northern Bowen Basin like Glencore’s Collinsville and Newlands operations.

Adani says it will commence federally approved maintenance dredging at the port between April and October next year.
