The Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal (WICET) will provide additional export capacity at the Port of Gladstone to service new mines and expansion of existing mines in the Surat and southern Bowen Basins.
WICET is a green field coal terminal on Golding Point which is located west of the existing RG Tanna Coal Terminal (RGTCT). The offshore wharf and loading facilities are situated north of Wiggins Island, adjacent to the Targinie Channel. The rail unloading facilities are located immediately south of the North Coast Line (NCL) and are connected to the Golding Point stockyard via a 5.6km long overland conveyor.
The following provides a quick reference of key design and operational specifications of Stage 1 of the Terminal.
