Kimberley Marine Offloading Facility

Proposal description: 

Kimberley Marine Support Base Pty Ltd (KMSB) are proposing to develop the Kimberley Marine Offloading Facility at the Port of Broome, approximately 200 metres south of the existing Broome Wharf.

The proposal includes construction and operation of a deep-water floating wharf, along with associated onshore hardstand and terminal facilities suitable for container and general cargo stevedoring for coastal trading vessels, berthing and mooring for Cruise vessels and Roll on/Roll off ships.

Development of the proposal will enable the Port of Broome to receive up to 2500 additional vessels per annum. KMSB have executed an agreement with the Kimberley Ports Authority (KPA) that aligns all operational practices at the facility to the existing standards of the Port.

The Proposal Development Envelope lies entirely within KPA port limits, and is surrounded on all sides by the Yawuru Nagulagun / Roebuck Bay Marine Park.
