On the 15 November, New Hope Group Ltd announced that storm damage had rendered the ship loaded at the Queensland Bulk handling (QBH) terminal inoperable. Amongst other damage, the ship loader’s boom required replacement.
Now, following successful commissioning of the repaired ship loader, the company has announced that loading operations have now recommenced. Work has begun to recover the backlog of shipping as quickly as possible.
CEO and Managing Director, Shane Stephan, commented: “The recovery from this unprecedented weather event demonstrates the high level of skill of our in-house engineering and management teams. Importantly, no injuries resulted from the storm event or from the recovery work. We expect that shippers will be able to recover the delayed cargoes over the coming six months.”
