Abstract

The Port of Mackay is a key strategic port within the portfolio of North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation Ltd (NQBP), accommodating the import and export of goods that support the economy of central Queensland. The Port caters for a wide variety of vessels. Vessel arrival navigation and maneuvering is currently constrained due to existing physical, environmental, and operational conditions at the harbour entrance particularly due to coastal tidally driven cross currents. NQBP engaged Royal HaskoningDHV (RHDHV) to review and assess options to alleviate vessel access constraints primarily through modifications to the physical harbour entrance infrastructure. This report summarizes the success of an alternative approach devised to increase the slack water arrival windows at the Port.
