Whyalla Transhipment Port
Whyalla, South Australia
Como Engineers were engaged by WPG Resources to complete definitive feasibility study and engineering design for a 3Mtpa iron ore Transhipment Port facility at Whyalla, South Australia.
This facility would include a 3,000t per hour Train Unloading, a 176,000tn capacity Covered Stockpiling, a 3,000t per hour Reclaiming and Barge Loading facility to be at One Steel’s Operation located at Whyalla.
One Steel and WPG signed an MOU to permit this facility to be located on One Steel land adjacent to their existing berth.
Following commencement of detailed design, One Steel Directors withdrew the MUO and WPG then engaged Como Engineers to determine the feasibility of other Port options, including Darwin, Newcastle, Port Kembla, Port Augusta, Adelaide and ultimately Port Pirie.
