Pilbara volumes flat, year-on-year
(Posted on 03/12/18)
Pilbara Ports Authority (PPA) has delivered a total monthly throughput of 57.3 million tonnes (Mt) for the month of October 2018. This throughput was in-line with the same month in 2017.
The Port of Port Hedland achieved a monthly throughput of 40.8Mt, of which 40.1Mt was iron ore exports. These volumes were a slight decrease of 2% from October 2017. Imports through the Port of Port Hedland totalled 165,000 tonnes, an increase of 40% from the same month in 2017. The Port of Dampier delivered a total monthly throughput of 15.4Mt, and this figure was in line with October 2017.
Imports through the Port of Dampier totalled 88,000 tonnes, a decrease of 23% from the same month in 2017. PPA operates as a Western Australian Government Trading Enterprise, and is governed under the Port Authorities Act 1999 WA.
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.
