The Port

Port Spencer - EP's dedicated grain-only port

Designed with grower in mind.

Port Spencer will provide a localised grain storage and export option for grain growers throughout the Eyre Peninsula.

With the recent closure of the grain freight services to Eyre Peninsula,  it is estimated that an additional 30,000 truck movements will go through the township of Port Lincoln each season.

The development of a deep sea grain-only port will divert significant truck movements into, and out of Port Lincoln.

Port Spencer freight benefits


Freight Mangement

As growers, we know, every minute our grain is on the road is lost income.  With efficiency features built into the site plan, including the location of our Sample Hut, Access (Entry/ Exit) Roads, Weigh bridge and Bunker Grids, Port Spencer will be purpose-built to improve operational efficiency for growers.

From our choice of location, planned access road improvements, State-of-the-Art grain storage and ship loading facilities, Port Spencer is being built from the ground up to compete as an International best-practice grain port.

Grain Management

Our grain management is designed for the maximum site efficiency, to reduce turn around times, and improve the grower experience.

Design partners Allied Grain Systems are proposing a continuous loop grain conveying system capable of replacing most traditional components for efficiency gains, and reduced maintenance costs.

Boat Management

According to the Australia Export Grains Innovation Centre, international competition is driving downward pressure on grain pricing. Australia, and in particular, the Eyre Peninsula, needs to increase its global competitiveness. Port Spencer is designed to take advantage of natural benefits of the deep water just 200m off the beach at our site.

Designed specifically for bulk dry commodity freight, the wharf and loading equipment will propel Eyre Peninsula grain back to the top of the market.

Worlds-best Practice

Peninsula Ports have partnered with the best to ensure Port Spencer is developed responsibly and efficiently.

We’ve worked hard to identify industry leaders to work with us to build a world-class grain port.

Wharf construction partners

Peninsula Ports will be integrating elements of McConnell Dowell/ Jacobs Engineering recent award-winning wharf construction solution (650m jetty) for Rio Tinto in Far North Queensland.

Minimising impact on site, reducing construction time and costs.

More than just Business As Usual.
