Quattro Ports Terminal at Port Kembla Opens

The Quattro Ports grain terminal at Port Kembla was officially opened today, with a ceremony attended by port stakeholders and local community leaders to mark the occasion, NSW Ports just announced.

Melinda Pavey, MP NSW Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight, was joined by Simon Barney, Chairman of Quattro Ports, and Marika Calfas, CEO of NSW Ports, to undertake official duties.

The start of operations at the facility will increase Port Kembla’s share of the east coast grain market by growing its catchment area through improved logistics, the announcement stated.

The terminal was opened after three years of construction and planning by both Quattro Ports and NSW Ports.

The NSW Ports component of the development included:

  • Extension of Berth 103 to handle vessels of up to 225 meters in length;
  • Dredging of approximately 120,000m³ to increase berth depth to 14.5 meters.
