Kooragang Coal Terminal

With a capacity of 120 mtpa, Kooragang is one of the largest coal export terminals in the world.

Kooragang Coal Terminal has a licensed capacity of 120 million tonnes per annum (mtpa). All of the coal received at Kooragang Coal Terminal is delivered by rail into four rail receival facilities located on the northern edge of the terminal. A feature of the Kooragang shiploading system is the use of buffer bins, into which coal is diverted during hatch changes and other short term interruptions during loading. This permits operation of the rail mounted shiploaders at a peak rate of up to 10,500 tonnes per hour for each shiploader.

Through its expansion, Port Waratah has continued to implement best practice environmental management strategies – such as the installation of low-noise idlers, gearboxes and alarms. This type of technology means that Kooragang continues to improve its environmental performance and minimise impacts on the community. Kooragang Terminal also proactively contributes to the local community, with $25,000 per year specifically dedicated to sponsorships and donations for the neighbouring suburbs of the terminal.
