CSBP Fertilisers unveil multi-million-dollar Kwinana project

CSBP Fertilisers has confirmed that the multi-million-dollar project to refurbish its direct import conveyor system at its Kwinana facility is complete. 

The infrastructure travels from Kwinana Bulk Jetty directly to CSBP’s storage facilities. The combined length of the conveyors is 680 metres. Almost 400 metres of the system runs alongside the Fremantle Port Authority jetty.  

“As farmers across the state continue preparations for seeding, CSBP is pleased to have delivered this critical infrastructure project,” CSBP Fertiliser general manager Ryan Lamp said.  

“CSBP typically brings in half a million tonnes of solid product each year at its Kwinana works, and our direct import conveyor system plays a key role in helping deliver a range of imported material into storage in anticipation of customer demand.”  

The refurbished conveyor system will be used to import finished fertiliser produce and raw materials used in fertiliser manufacturing. According to the company, the system includes several safety and environmental upgrades.

It will also enable the company to unload faster and leverage its storage capacity. 

Lamp said the system will ensure CSBP’s reliability for future seeding seasons. 

“CSBP prides itself on delivering the best reliability for growers across WA. Getting our product off vessels and into storage safely and efficiently puts us in a prime position to be ready for the busiest time of the season,” he said. 

“This project required extensive planning and effort, and I would like to thank all of the CSBP team members and external stakeholders who have collaborated in its successful delivery.  

“With several other important infrastructure upgrades also underway across our network of facilities in WA, it is an exciting time at CSBP Fertilisers.”
