Port Hedland Australia

New milestone for Port Hedland in Australia, new contract awarded to Jan De Nul

The Pilbara Ports Authority once again engages the expertise of Jan De Nul Group to expand Port Hedland’s infrastructure. Later this year we’ll mobilize the cutter suction dredger J.F.J. De Nul for over two months of capital dredging and reclamation.

Over the past several years, Jan De Nul Group has been the lead contractor on the majority of the capital dredging works as well as the maintenance dredging works within Port Hedland.

Deepening towards two new berths

After five months of intense preparation, we will create a deeper access within the port, a swing basin and berth pockets to enable vessels to safely moor at Lumsden Point. This is all part of the development of the Lumsden Point General Cargo Facility and Logistics Hub that will ultimately culminate in two additional cargo berths.
