GeelongPort and Boral cement partnership

  • Posted on Thursday 27th, September 2018.

A 25-year agreement has been reached between GeelongPort and Boral Cement which will see Boral Cement invest $130 million to construct a new clinker grinding and cement facility at GeelongPort.

In anticipation of the future demand for construction materials in the Victorian region, the new facility has been designed to handle up to 1.3 million tonnes of cementitious products per annum. The facility will be connected by a conveyor system to Lascelles Wharf, providing substantial discharge and processing efficiencies.

“We are excited to extend our partnership with Boral Cement who has operated at GeelongPort for more than 7 years. Our facilities, complemented by our experienced people and freight connections, offer Boral Cement advantages to their long-term business outlook and supports their customers”, Brett Winter, CEO of GeelongPort said.

The 25-year agreement at GeelongPort highlights the benefits of strengthening alliances with global operators and the flow on effect it can have to the local and regional economies.

Construction works will commence soon on building the new grinding, storage and dispatch facility. Wharf side works will incorporate ship unloading equipment, including wharf side hoppers and a conveying system linked directly to the facility.
