BMT & Adani Mining Pty Ltd (Adani) to design expansion at the Adani Abbot Point Coal Terminal at Abbot Point, north of Mackay, Queensland. 

The collaboration will involve BMT engineers from Australia (BMT WBM) and India (BMT Consultants (India)) working closely together with Adani at its head office in Ahmedabad, India.
 
The proposed ‘T0’ expansion of the coal terminal at Abbot Point will have a capacity of 70 million tons per annum of product coal and together with the existing ‘T1’ terminal, will deliver a total capacity of 120 million tons per annum. The Abbot Point terminals will support the new Carmichael Mine in the Galilee Basin, north-west of Clermont.
 
Tony McAlister at BMT WBM comments: “The market reputation BMT has carved over the past 40 years as a leader in mining and port infrastructure development and support services in Australia positioned us as the partner of choice for Adani Mining.  In collaboration with our Indian offices, we have forged a strong relationship with Adani, to cover all aspects of civil infrastructure, mechanical and electrical design for the proposed port facility.”
 
With its comprehensive knowledge of design principles, standards and quality assurance systems, BMT is well placed to provide expert advice and guidance to help deliver a large scale project such as this in Australia.  Attention to detail, knowledge of specific Australia standards, as well as adherence to quality control practices will play an integral role in ensuring the successful delivery of the detailed design phase.
 
Tony McAlister continues: “We’re hard at work with the assembled teams to refine the initial designs in order to create the most energy efficient systems and designs which will help to minimise initial capital expenditure and on-going operational costs for this important project for both Australia and India.”
