OVERVIEW

BBI Group Pty Ltd (BBIG) is proposing an integrated port and rail system servicing mining operations in the central Pilbara region of Western Australia the Balla Balla Infrastructure Project (BBI Project).


COMPONENTS

The BBI Project incorporates the following infrastructure components:


Rail 

The rail component consists of a 165 km single-track standard gauge railway connecting the port with the central Pilbara iron ore region. The railway design is typical of the Pilbara and has the ability to carry 40 tonne axle loads. The current alignment includes a North West Coastal Highway road over rail bridge, two major river crossings and 30 km of drainage culverts.


Port and Marine 

The port site is located approximately halfway between Dampier and Port Hedland, in close proximity to road, gas and electrical infrastructure. 


The port component comprises a landside stockyard and train unloading facility, overland conveyors, and transhipment iron ore export facility at the port site. In-loading conveyors transfer the product from the car dumpers at the port end of the rail, direct to the out-loading conveyor circuit which transfers to the transhipment wharf via a causeway and jetty structure. 


Material may also be shuttled to a dead storage stockpile. Dead storage is reclaimed by mobile plant in the event of sustained train interruptions and transferred. The marine component covers the transhipment shuttle vessels, the navigation channel and the outer anchorage location where product is transferred to the ocean going vessels.


Supporting Infrastructure

Additional supporting infrastructure is required for the BBI Project to facilitate reliable supply of fuel, potable and process/fire water, power and other services.
