Kwinana Bulk Jetty
Fremantle Ports invited expressions of interest to develop and operate a dedicated bulk liquids berth at Kwinana. The site is Fremantle Ports’ Kwinana Bulk Jetty, a common-user facility which currently handles both dry and liquid bulk trades.
There has been strong growth in these trade sectors over the past decade.
Consolidating Fremantle Ports’ common-user bulk liquid trade to a dedicated world-class berth as an extension to the Kwinana Bulk Jetty will increase efficiency, safe handling and capacity.
Fremantle Ports and the WA Government recognise the importance of the bulk liquids trade to industry and business and the need to ensure adequate common-user berth capacity to satisfy future needs.
Fremantle Ports sees the development of a world-class, dedicated berth at the Kwinana Bulk Jetty as a key strategy in more efficiently servicing its bulk liquids common-user berth customers while providing for continuing growth in the medium to long-term.
The envisaged development comprises a south-western, open pile extension to the Kwinana Bulk Jetty plus associated safety equipment, onshore/offshore support infrastructure and security monitoring systems.
The bulk liquids berth will handle a range of commodities including petroleum products, chemicals and liquid fertilisers.
Fremantle Ports has previously planned for a new dry bulk berth to be developed at this site.
In changing the concept to a bulk liquids berth, Fremantle Ports believes there will be improved environmental outcomes and is progressing an amendment to the existing environmental approval to permit the use of the proposed berth for bulk liquids.
Fremantle Ports anticipates a long-term private commercial agreement to be finalised over the next 12 months.
