Port of Newcastle

Port Waratah Coal Services (PWCS) has commenced the evaluation of an extension to its Kooragang coal terminal at the Port of Newcastle.

The proposed Terminal 4 (T4) Project expansion has reached Feasibility Study level and environmental approval is expected within 2014.

It seeks to meet the increasing overseas demand for energy, ongoing expansion of the coal industry in the Hunter Valley, and PWCS obligation to clients. The project is a critical element of the long term export plan signed by the Hunter Coal industry and the New South Wales Government in late 2009.

According to PWCS, the T4 Project Proposal will:
* develop approximately 310ha of industrial zoned land (including a former landfill) located west of the existing PWCS Kooragang Island operations;
* construct coal stockyards, rail facilities, marine side infrastructure (e.g. wharves) and shiploading facilities;
* increase the annual coal export throughput of the Port of Newcastle by up to 70 Million tonnes per annum at full development; and
* ensure sufficient terminal capacity to meet long term needs of coal producers.
