Berth 14A Bunbury Port
Lanco Resources Australia Pty Ltd (Lanco), proposes to establish a coal export facility by developing Berth 14A of the Bunbury Port Inner Harbour. Coal will be sourced from the Collie Basin of Western Australia.
The project will be comprised of two main sections – the Berth 14A section and the materials handling section.
Lanco/Griffin expects the proposal will provide significant economic and employment opportunities for the Bunbury Region and assist in realising the expansion objectives of the port in accordance with the Structure Plan for the Bunbury Port Inner Harbour.
The proposed infrastructure required to support the proposal includes:
- Construction of Berth 14A pocket and approach to accommodate Bulk Carriers; and
- Materials handling infrastructure including train unloading, conveyers stackers, storage and ship loading facilities.
