The increasing level of coal and mineral exports from Australia has created a strain on existing export facilities and has resulted in the need for expansions to existing facilities and new export facilities. Larger bulk material carrier sizes up to 360,00 DWT are now in service, however many existing ports can only handle vessels up to a maximum of 220,000 DWT. Thus there will be a need for new berths designed for these vessels and continuing pressure on existing terminals to accept larger ships.
