Project Details

The Carmichael Coal Mine and Rail project is expected to operate for 60 years and will produce up to 60Mtpa (million tonnes per annum) of coal at its peak.

Adani is proposing to developing mine, rail and port project in Australia. This is part of the Adani Groups Pit to Plug business model, that is, Adanis key objective is to extract coal from its Mine, process it to an appropriate grade and export it to the overseas power plants Customers including the Adanis power station projects.

Key features:

The Carmichael coal mine comprises a Greenfield coal mine consisting of both open cut and underground mining, on-mine infrastructure and associated mine processing facilities (the Mine) and the Mine (offsite) infrastructure including but not limited to:

Carmichael Mine project comprises: 

  • Three longwall underground systems requiring sets of equipment consisting of hydraulic shields to provide roof support during extraction, shearers to cut the coal from the seam and conveyors to transfer the coal to the surface

  • Six open cut pits truck-and-shovel equipment will be used for the pre-strip of overburden and for coal excavation, other methods such as bucket wheels, continuous haulage systems may be used for the removal of overburden after further investigation and design has been concluded

  • Mine infrastructure and processing facilities

  • Workers accommodation village and associated facilities

  • Industrial area

  • Permanent airport site.

  • Up to five offsite Quarries

North Galilee Basin Rail  (NGBR) project comprises: 

  • A standard gauge, Greenfield rail line approximately 380 km in length

  • Operational capacity up to 100 Mtpa

  • At-grade and grade-separated road, rail, stock and occupational crossings

  • Bridge and culvert structures at major waterways and drainage lines, and various other longitudinal and cross drainage structures

  • Associated infrastructure, including, passing loops, maintenance road and facilities, water supply, rail bridges, rolling stock, road and waterway crossings, workforce accommodation, fencing, maintenance yards, lay down areas, quarries, etc

  • Trains will operate up to 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, 365 days/year and will comprise three diesel or electric locomotives and 220 wagons per train

  • Train lengths will be approximately 4,000 metres, with each train carrying approximately 23,500 tonnes.

Abbot Point T0 project:

 The proposed Abbot Point T0 Coal export terminal will comprise: 

  • A rail connection from the Mine track (i.e. NGBR) including turnout loops and loading facilities

  • Stockyard

  • Yard machines (i.e. stackers, reclaimers, stacker / reclaimers)

  • Conveyor systems to transport coal from the NGBR to the stockyard and then to the shiploader

  • Out loading and off shore berths

  • Shiploaders.

Project benefits

The Carmichael Coal Mine and Rail project will offer a number of benefits to Queensland and the Galilee Basin including: 

  • Providing more than 10,000 direct and indirect jobs

  • Generating economic growth

  • Upgrading local roads

  • Community investment in rural Queensland

  • Contributing to Queensland's rail network. 

Adani is committed to ensuring local communities share in their business success and will achieve this by working in partnership with local communities to achieve mutual long term benefits.

Logistics Vessel Review Study for Abbot Point Coal Terminal T0 Expansion Project28 May 134 Jun 13 
Scope of Services broadly include :

1. Confirm the most current logistics assumptions with client including cargo types.
2. Review suitable logistics vessels (2 options) to service the project. Current assumptions include a self-propelled barge and a dumb pallet barge.
3. Review the selected vessels operational limitations (performance envelope) for the assumed cargo against capacity, stability, speed, berthing, loading, unloading, ballasting, grounding, mooring, wind and sea state.
4. Determine the cargo accelerations to be fed back into the structural design of the module (transport load cases)
5. Determine the berth requirements to service the selected vessels including dredging geometry and marine structures geometry
6. Determine the metocean operational limitations and envelope for the above MOF based on the selected vessels and worst case cargo
7. Confirm that the selected vessel can berth and moor at the MOF under maximum operational limitations for the required duration and recommend modifications to any assumptions if required and confirm solution is workable. This may by a report from a master mariner with relevant experience and may include modeling if required
8. Confirm how each cargo type will be unloaded and transported ashore
9. Commentary on customs, quarantine, ballast water, hull preparation etc
10. Identification and capture of all risks into a risk register
11. Presentation of outcomes into a final report
12. Preparation of deliverables.
13. Regular status reports to client including cost, schedule and progress.
