Co-operative Bulk Handling Ltd (CBH) propose to develop a facility for the import and storage of dry (granular) and liquid urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) fertiliser products.
The proposal consists of onshore and offshore components and is located adjacent and within the existing Rockingham Industrial Zone (RIZ). The offshore component will extend into the southern Cockburn Sound.
The proposal involves the construction of a dedicated liquid (UAN) pipeline that will follow the alignment of the existing CBH Grain Terminal jetty, crossing the shoreline, and proceeding underground to the proposed onshore facility. The proposed onshore facility will comprise of three liquid UAN storage tanks (48 000 T capacity), a dry fertiliser storage shed, water management infrastructure including swales and an evaporation pond, hardstand areas including access roads, truck washdown bays, a site office and amenities, and weighbridges.
Up to 5.2 ha of native vegetation located within the RIZ area will be cleared to construct the proposed onshore facility.
