Berth 3 works underway at Port Hedland

(Posted on 31/01/19)

Work is underway on the $33.5 million replacement of the Berth 3 deck and fender at the Port of Port Hedland, a project that will create almost 50 local jobs.

Successful tenderer Total AMS Pty Ltd's WAIPS Participation Plan estimates the project will directly deliver almost 50 local jobs, as well as more than 20 subcontractor positions. About 75 per cent of the workforce will be Pilbara-based.

Originally constructed in the late 1960s, Berth 3 is a multi-user berth that is primarily used for the export of salt and the import of fuels. The deck was replaced in 1988 due to deterioration.

Iron ore continues to be the dominant export product of the port, positioning it as the world’s largest iron ore export port.

On 1 July 2014, Port Hedland Port Authority amalgamated with Dampier Port Authority to form Pilbara Ports Authority. Pilbara Ports Authority stretches from the Port of Ashburton near Onslow in the south, to the Port of Port Hedland in the north, and includes the future Ports of Anketell and Cape Preston East.
