Demand for metallurgical and steam coal mined in New South Wales, Australia is underlined by a growth in exports from 1.9m tons in 1960 to 17.7m tons in 1978. Such growth has placed increasing pressure on export facilities to the extent that Port Kembla, with a current 6m tons/annum coal throughput will expand to handle 15m tons by 1982 with further possible development taking throughput to 20m tons/annum. Contract awards for ship loading, stacking and reclaiming and wagon discharge equipment, currently out to tender, are anticipated in the first quarter of 1980. Soros Associates of New York is the consulting engineer involved in the Port Kembla development and in the following article the president of the company Paul Soros and project manager Mohammed Osman outline major design criteria and handling equipment innovations with the new facility.
