With fertiliser collections ramping up ahead of seeding, CSBP Fertilisers is pleased to announce it has completed an $11 million refurbishment of its direct import conveyor system at its Kwinana works.
This critical piece of infrastructure runs from the Kwinana Bulk Jetty directly to CSBP’s storage facilities. The combined length of the conveyors is 680 metres long, with almost 400 metres of this system running along the Fremantle Port Authority jetty.
The conveyor system is used for the import of finished fertiliser product and for raw materials to support fertiliser manufacture. The new conveyor design includes a range of safety and environmental improvements, and will underpin the reliability of CSBP’s supply from Kwinana for 2024 and future seasons.
CSBP Fertilisers General Manager, Ryan Lamp, said completion of this important refurbishment was timely, with demand increasing rapidly for the 2024 season. “As farmers across the state continue preparations for seeding, CSBP is pleased to have delivered this critical infrastructure project,”
Mr Lamp said. “CSBP typically brings in half a million tonnes of solid product each year at its Kwinana works, and our direct import conveyor system plays a key role in helping deliver a range of imported material into storage in anticipation of customer demand.
“CSBP prides itself on delivering best reliability for growers across WA. Getting our product off vessels and into storage safely and efficiently puts us in a prime position to be ready for the busiest time of the season. “This project required extensive planning and effort, and I would like to thank all of the CSBP team members and external stakeholders who have collaborated in its successful delivery. With several other important infrastructure upgrades also underway across our network of facilities in WA, it is an exciting time at CSBP Fertilisers.”
