The Proposal

Kangaroo Island Plantation Timbers (KIPT) has lodged an application to develop a deep-water wharf facility at Smith Bay to export plantation timber from Kangaroo Island. Currently there is no such facility on Kangaroo Island. It is anticipated that timber-carrying ships would use the wharf for about 50 to 75 days a year.

If approved, the facility would consist of:

– a causeway, extending to a floating pontoon berth

– berthing pocket

– tug mooring facilities

– retaining structures and mooring dolphins

– stockpile, storage and laydown areas

– ship loading systems

– ancillary facilities and services.

Harvested timber products would be transported to the wharf via public roads.
