The Dudgeon Point Coal Terminals project involves the development of two new coal terminals with a combined capacity of 180 mtpa throughput at Dudgeon Point, within the Port of Hay Point.
NQBP required environmental approval for the project under separate Queensland and Australian Government legislation and terms of reference.
Challenges faced in the execution of the project included:
Advisian were engaged as project manager for the environmental investigations and compilation of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), working in parallel with the project engineering team to develop the project design.
The development of specialist studies was effectively completed and the EIS was in compilation phase, with the joint management framework under development, when the project was put on hold.
Through the execution of targeted early stage environmental investigations, working in parallel with the project engineering in design, development and provision of quality advice, appropriate recognition was given to areas of community and environmental significance at the earliest stage possible. As such, during project layout and design, impact was avoided or minimized, enabling approvals to be processed and risk to be reduced.
