Industry-leading research, as well as technical studies, have informed NQBP’s approach to the proposed maintenance dredging program - the approach has been designed to minimise impacts to the environment.

We have undertaken detailed studies and engaged a range of stakeholders to understand the source of natural sediment accumulation and appropriate removal and placement options at the Port of Weipa.

These assessment reports have been developed in consultation with a range of professionals and stakeholder groups. For more detailed information on any aspect of this assessment, view the reports and associated appendices below.
