Flinders Ports operates seven ports in South Australia ... Port Adelaide, Port Lincoln, Port Pirie, Klein Point, Port Giles, Thevenard and Wallaroo.
Flinders Ports is committed to improving port services to the benefit of existing trades and assisting in the development of new business. The Company continues to expand its port facilities to meet the demands of its customers.
With the development and growth of the mining sector in South Australia, Flinders Ports is looking to develop all its ports to offer a competitive supply chain solution to the industry.
One of the projects has been a staged development of a bulk precinct located at the inner harbour in Port Adelaide. The development has incorporated upgrades to wharf drainage systems; construction of a bulk ship loader; construction of storage facilities; proposed construction of a rail directly into the precinct and a weighbridge and wash down facilities.
Flinders Ports has also commissioned a tipping spreader system at the container terminal at Port Adelaide for the export of ores and concentrates. The Rotainer - supported by a container crane - lifts, lowers and rotates a full container into a ship's hold.
Flinders Ports is investigating the use of the Rotainer for the inner harbour bulk precinct and the regional ports, particularly for the loading of concentrates such as zinc and copper.
The seven ports are equipped to handle a range of bulk and break bulk cargoes with undeveloped land available, providing opportunities to further develop port infrastructure. Available land in the inner harbour at Port Adelaide has direct access to wharf facilities and bulk loading infrastructure. The area is also linked by road and rail access to Adelaide's industrial areas and the container terminal at Outer Harbor.
Land in Outer Harbor Port Adelaide has direct access to the container terminal and road and rail facilities linking the Outer Harbor with intra and interstate origins and destinations.
An extensive road and railway network servicing a catchment area extending across South Australia to southern New South Wales and western Victoria enables Flinders Ports to offer a vast range of receival, storage and transport options.
