CSBP Fertilisers completes AUS$11 million upgrade to vital infrastructure

With fertiliser collections ramping up ahead of seeding, CSBP Fertilisers has announced its completion of an AUS$11 million refurbishment of its direct import conveyor system at Kwinana.

The new piece of infrastructure runs from the Kwinana Bulk Jetty directly to CSBP’s storage facilities. The combined length of the conveyors is 680 m long, with almost 400 m of this system running along the Fremantle Port Authority jetty.

The conveyor system has been used for the import of finished fertiliser product and for raw materials to support fertiliser manufacture. The new conveyor design included a range of safety and environmental improvements, and will underpin the reliability of CSBP’s supply from Kwinana for 2024 and future seasons.

CSBP Fertilisers General Manager, Ryan Lamp, said completion of the important refurbishment was timely, with demand increasing rapidly for the 2024 season.

“As farmers across the state continue preparations for seeding, CSBP is pleased to have delivered this critical infrastructure project,” Mr Lamp said.

“CSBP typically brings in half a million tonnes of solid product each year at its Kwinana works, and our direct import conveyor system plays a key role in helping deliver a range of imported material into storage in anticipation of customer demand.

“CSBP prides itself on delivering best reliability for growers across Western Australia. Getting our product off vessels and into storage safely and efficiently puts us in a prime position to be ready for the busiest time of the season. This project required extensive planning and effort, and I would like to thank all of the CSBP team members and external stakeholders who have collaborated in its successful delivery. With several other important infrastructure upgrades also underway across our network of facilities in Western Australia, it is an exciting time at CSBP Fertilisers.”
