Adani Abbot Point Terminal 1

Port operations

Located approximately 20km north of Bowen in North Queensland, the Port of Abbot Point is significant as one of the few locations along Queensland’s eastern seaboard with deep water (more than 15 metres) access close to shore.

In May 2011, the Queensland Government entered into a 99-year lease of the existing Abbot Point Terminal 1 to Mundra Port Pty Ltd. The terminal is now known as the Adani Abbot Point Terminal 1 under the company name Adani Abbot Point Terminal Pty Ltd (AAPTPL).

AAPTPL is the Australian subsidiary of Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Ltd, which manages the largest privately developed port in India and forms part of the Adani Group.

The operation and maintenance of Terminal 1 is contracted to Abbot Point Bulk Coal Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of Xstrata Coal Queensland Pty Ltd.

The terminal operation consists of the following key components:

  • Stockyard
  • Yard machines to stack and reclaim coal to and from the stockpiles
  • Out loading to the off-shore berth
  • Ship loading

Under the Port’s lease, the State retains ownership of the Port land and fixed infrastructure such as the jetty and the wharf. The North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation remains as the port authority for AAPTPL and isresponsible for the ongoing safety, security, efficiency of and master planning for the Port.

Adani is seeking approval to develop new coal export facilities at Dudgeon Point, located within the Port of Hay Point.

NQBP, Adani Mining and Dudgeon Point Project Management (DPPM) are proponents for the Dudgeon Point Coal Terminals Project (DPCT).

Led by NQBP, the proponents are seeking approvals for the development of:

  • Two separate new coal export terminals
  • Six rail loops and train unloading facilities
  • Rail connection to the Goonyella Rail System
  • Offshore wharf facilities for eight ship berths
  • Dredging of between 13-15 million m3 to create eight berth pockets and a departure apron for ships
  • Expanded tug facilities to accommodate up to 10 extra tug and service berths

The proposed port terminals are located on strategic port land at Dudgeon Point in the Port of Hay Point. The port is located 25km south of Mackay and 20km north of Sarina on the Central Queensland Coast. The project is located 4km north-west of the existing coal terminals at the port and 10km east of the Bruce Highway.
