NSS helps Port of Bundaberg ‘steel’ itself for growth

Northern Stevedoring Services (NSS) is proud to have contributed to the development of Bundaberg Port. 

NSS was part of recent exercise involving a 922 tonne discharge of steel sheet piles for Pacific Marine Base Bundaberg (PMBB).

The sheet piles will be used in the development of the  PMBB’s Break Bulk Facility at the port.

The facility with run at a minimum of 5 meters depth alongside the highest capacity Ro-Ro berth on the East Coast of Australia.

NSS were engaged to discharge the steel sheet piles from the Spliethoff vessel ‘Humbergracht’ directly to the Pacific Tug Group’s barge, P.T. Norfolk. 

Pacific Marine Base Bundaberg (PMBB) demonstrates another major investment in a renewables gateway, connecting Bundaberg and South East Queensland to the Blue Highway. 

PMBB has reported it proactively purchased all materials for the stage 2 wharf construction which firms up the delivery timeline.

The delivery was supported by Gladstone Ports Corporation Ltd and NSS and demonstrates the versatility and capability of the Port of Bundaberg for diverse cargoes.

The project highlighted NSS’ capacity on ports supporting regional Queensland economies said General Manager Mark George.

“NSS is committed to meet the demands of growing regional economies.

“Our people and equipment are capable to handle the range of demands and we are proud to be able to contribute.

“Pacific Marine Base Bundaberg as part of the Pacific Tug Group are a leading Australian owned provider of specialised maritime services in Australia and the Asia Pacific and  NSS is right behind them.”
