Minimal Dredging for New Tug Harbor

BHP Billiton has approved a $240 million for the purchase of six additional tugs and construction of a new eight pen Tug Harbor at Hunt Point in the Port Hedland Port.

The investment will also include the upgrade of workshop facilities, operational and service berths and two small boat moorings at the existing Nelson Point Tug Harbor.

The new Tug Harbor improves upon previous designs with the facility requiring minimal dredging and marine-based infrastructure and having less environmental and visual impact.

Earthworks are scheduled to commence in December 2015 with construction expected to be complete in September 2016.
