Port Kembla Coal Terminal (PKCT) is the major coal facility in southern NSW for the transfer of coal from rail and road to ship. The terminal is responsible for receiving, assembling and loading coal from the southern and western NSW coalfields. The coal is then transported by ship to domestic and international markets.
The existing equipment servicing the coal stockpiles has been in operation for over 30 years and was in need of significant upgrade works to maintain the current operational capacity.
The scope of works was to supply material for 6km of rail system within the 1km long coal stockyard to facilitate the introduction of new stacker and reclaimer equipment in the yard. The overall scope for this project involves:
- Supply of monoblock sleepers
- Supply of 73KG crane rail
- Supply of cross ties to maintain track gauge between independent sleepers
