Oakajee Port Development

BMT has been engaged by OPR to undertake marine engineering for the proposed Oakajee Port Development just north of Geraldton, designed to increase the export capacity of smaller iron ore mining operations in the region.


We have had a long history of involvement since the mid-1990’s when the project was initially proposed.

We were asked to provide a technical review of the breakwater and dredging aspects of the project and subsequently recommended a number of design improvements to lower the cost and improve technical robustness of the project.

Oakajee Port and Rail were subsequently nominated as the successful proponent by the Western Australian State Government in 2008.

We were appointed as the marine port consultant and our role in the port design included:

We assisted OPR with all aspects of the port marine development from concept design through to the completion of a detailed Bankable Feasibility Study which included detailed design of the all aspects of the port.
