Located at the Port of Hay Point, 38 kilometres south of Mackay in central Queensland, DBCT is a key player in the world’s global coal export market and is critical to the economic prosperity of Queensland and Australia. With an uncompromising dedication to ensuring the safety of its people and the surrounding community, coupled with an unparalleled persistence to achieve operational excellence, DBCT has been reliably exporting coal to at least 30 countries for more than 25 years.
Over the last 10 years, DBCT has undergone various expansions to meet the unprecedented demand by global markets for the Bowen Basin’s premium quality coal. As one of the world’s largest coal export Terminals with the capacity to ship 85 Mtpa, DBCT is an impressive facility.
- DBCT Management Pty Ltd, a satellite of Prime Infrastructure (ASX: PIH), holds a 50 year lease with a 49 year option to operate, maintain and develop the Terminal.
- DBCT is a common–user facility providing services to a large number of mining customers producing all types of coal (Coking, PCI and Thermal). Together with the terminal’s ability to blend different coal types from its stockyard, this makes the operation of DBCT unique to most other coal terminals.
- DBCT Pty Ltd is the contracted operator maintainer for the site, employs approximately 300 employees and is a valuable part of the Queensland economy.
