PERTH (miningweekly.com) – ASX-listed Dalrymple Bay Infrastructure has announced a A$280-million investment into the design and construction of a new shiploader and a new reclaimer to replace existing machinery at the Dalrymple Bay Terminal (DBT).
Construction of both the shiploader and reclaimer will start in 2023 and will take three to four years to complete.
The shiploader has been costed at A$165-million, with the reclaimer expected to cost a further A$116-million.
“To ensure that the DBT continues to accommodate metallurgical coal exports from the Bowen basin for use in steel production that will enable the world’s transition to a low carbon future, Dalrymple Bay Infrastructure will focus on its investment in the pipeline of non-expansionary capital expenditure (NECAP) projects required at DBT over the coming years,” said Dalrymple Bay Infrastructure MD and CEO Anthony Timbrell.
“Our NECAP programme will continue to ensure that terminal capacity remains available to meet the needs of our customers while delivering meaningful organic growth for security holders.”
