Hay Point Coal Terminal Expansion Stage 3 (HPX3)

Engineers Australia Engineering Excellence Awards – Queensland Division

Resource Development
High Commendation (in joint venture with Hatch)

The third expansion of the Hay Point Coal Terminal increased nameplate throughput capacity from 44 million to 55 million tonnes yearly without adding to the existing stockpile footprint.

A tight construction market required some creative thinking to reduce the cost of materials, on-site construction costs and delivery time.  Bringing an integrated understanding of facility design and port operations, the team was able to plan and design this ambitious undertaking with minimal impact to ongoing operations.

Aurecon’s innovative design both expanded the outloading bulk materials handling system and bolstered the facility’s ability to withstand significant weather events, protecting the longevity of the terminal and minimising disruption to the supply chain.
