(Posted on 04/07/19)

Pilbara Ports Authority is celebrating five years of achievements. On 1 July 2014, the former port authorities of Dampier and Port Hedland successfully amalgamated to form Pilbara Ports Authority, the world’s largest bulk export port authority.

97,685 safe vessel movements

9.8 million hours worked with a Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate for all employees, contractors and licensees of 1.02 over the five years*

Exporting approximately 50% of the world’s seaborne iron ore, 9% of the world’s LNG and 2.65% of the world’s solar salt*

Million tonnes on a tide in Port Hedland increasing from 22 times in 2014 to 108 times in 2019

The sounthern hemisphere's first LNG bunkering operation in the Port of Dampier in January 2017

Consistently achieving high scores in Stakeholder Satisfaction Surveys. In 2019, PPA achieved a corporate reputation index score of 77, against an Australian average of 46**

Winning numerous awards for port management and operations, ICT and cyber security, environment and heritage programmes, corporate affairs, infrastructure development and leadership.

Pilbara Ports Authority CEO Roger Johnston says clear direction from the Board and the adoption of industry-leading practices over the past five years were the keys to success.

“High calibre people and world-leading technologies are the cornerstones of our ongoing success, allowing us to safely export more products more efficiently,” Mr Johnston said.

“We’re also lucky to work in great Pilbara communities like Dampier, Karratha, Onslow and Port Hedland where local people work for us, or closely with us, ensuring we deliver the best outcomes for industry, the region and Western Australia,” Mr Johnston said.

In addition to Dampier and Port Hedland, Pilbara Ports Authority now encompasses the Port of Ashburton and the future ports of Anketell, Balla Balla and Cape Preston East. It will also assume oversight of the Shipping and Pilotage Act 1967 ports of Port Walcott, Cape Preston, Barrow Island, Varanus Island and Onslow over the next few years.
