Berth 6

Berth 6 is a multipurpose berth used for general break bulk cargo, livestock and mineral exports, fertiliser and fuel imports.  A rock wall and steel sheet pile wall retain the hardstand behind the berth.  Berth 6 was constructed in 1996. It consists of a 200mm reinforced precast concrete panel deck overlayed with 100mm of concrete, supported by steel beams and piles. In 1997 a grouted revetment protection mattress was installed under the wharf. The piles are fitted with sacrificial anodes.  A section of the southern portion of the berth deck is strengthened to form a loadout bridge to accommodate heavier loads.
