Full project details

The K10 Berth Construction project for Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group (NCIG) involved the construction of the new coal loading wharf at the world's largest coal export terminal.

The project involved delivery of a new 465 metre wharf, adjacent to NCIG’s existing K8/K9 wharves - which were built by Laing O’Rourke 18 months earlier.

On 14 December 2012, the first vessel was moored to the new structure and five days later the client awarded the project Practical Completion.

K10 was also identified at its launch as a Mission Zero flagship project, showcasing Laing O'Rourke's unique behavioural safety campaign that aims to drive all incidents from our construction sites by 2020.

The composite steel and concrete wharf will play an integral part in boosting Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group’s export capacity.

More than 2090 tonnes of prefabricated materials were designed and constructed offsite and shipped to Newcastle, improving efficiency and safety.

Laing O'Rourke delivered the K8/K9 Berth project for NCIG and in 2012 also completed the K7 Berth for Port Waratah Coal Services (PWCS).
