CMRP improves Port Hedland safety
(Posted on 20/05/19)
Construction work on a project to replace ageing marine navigation aids in the Port of Port Hedland has been completed, improving safety for port users and supporting plans to facilitate more trade opportunities in the Pilbara region.
The Channel Marker Replacement Program (CMRP) replaced three land-based and 35 offshore structures to provide a safe, reliable navigation system for entering and departing Port Hedland waters for the next 25 years.
Earlier this month, Pilbara Ports Authority announced a delivered a total monthly throughput of 58.8 million tonnes (Mt) for the month of April 2019.
This throughput was a 1% decrease compared to the same month in 2018. The total throughput for the 2018/19 financial year to date is 569.3Mt, a decrease of 1% from the same time last year.
The Port of Port Hedland achieved a monthly throughput of 42.5Mt, of which 41.8Mt was iron ore exports. The monthly throughput was a 3% decrease from April 2018.
Imports through the Port of Port Hedland totalled 166,000 tonnes, an increase of 43% from the same month in 2018.
The Port of Dampier delivered a total monthly throughput of 15.4Mt, an increase of 2% from April 2018.
Imports through the Port of Dampier totalled 85,000 tonnes, a decrease of 34% from the same month in 2018.
PPA was established on 1 July 2014 as a result of the Ports Legislation Amendment Act 2014 consolidating seven of WA’s eight port authorities into four new regional port authorities. The former port authorities of Dampier and Port Hedland successfully amalgamated and formed PPA.
PPA encompasses the Port of Ashburton, the Port of Dampier and the Port of Port Hedland, and future ports of Anketell, Balla Balla and Cape Preston East. PPA will also assume oversight of a number of Shipping and Pilotage Act 1967 (SPA) ports, including the ports of Port Walcott, Cape Preston, Barrow Island, Varanus Island and Onslow from 2016.
