John Holland – Abbot Point X50 Expansion

We worked with John Holland Group to deliver the X50 Expansion at Abbot Point Coal Terminal. This work increased the North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation’s annual export capacity to 50 megatonnes. The facility services the export requirements of a number of mine operators, including Newlands, Collinsville, and Sonoma mines.

Our scope incorporated a range of marine works associated with the extension of the transfer tower and construction of the additional operation berth, east of the existing Berth 1. The works included installation of piles, headstocks, and rail girders, as well as steelwork modifications, installation of new equipment, and modification of existing equipment to accommodate the expansion. Walz provided all associated marine equipment and qualified operators.
