The Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal commenced operations in November 1983, at an initial capacity of 15 Mt/y.
The terminal is now a key player in the world’s global coal export market and is critical to the economic prosperity of Queensland and Australia.
Since 1985, Ausenco was commissioned to perform a number of studies and to provide engineering services for the modification and expansion of the facilities, including:
Through these studies, Ausenco has assisted Dalrymple Bay in optimising the terminal operations.
Over the last 10 years, DBCT P/L has undergone various expansions to meet the unprecedented demand by global markets for the Bowen Basin’s premium quality coal. The terminal is now one of the world’s largest coal export facilities with the capacity to ship 85 Mt/y.
