The 70 000 m2 development includes construction of:
- A UAN ship unloading and transfer pipeline, which runs along the existing Kwinana Grain Terminal jetty.
- Approximately 55 000 t of granular fertilizer storage in a new warehouse.
- 32 000 t of UAN storage in two 16 000 t storage tanks, and administration office, landscaping, and security.
The facility has been designed to provide for further expansion opportunities in future.
The construction schedule will see the UAN storage tanks completed first, with construction due to be completed in 2023.
CBH awarded the project construction contract to Western Australian construction firm Kerman Contracting Pty Ltd.
CBH CEO, Ben Macnamara, said: “The facility will enable the expansion of our fertiliser business, which last year achieved a 47 per cent increase in sales. This new phase of growth will see the business enter the liquid fertiliser market for the first time, and expand its granular fertiliser offering to provide consistency of supply and deliver on our strategy to reduce on-farm input costs for Western Australian grain growers.”
