Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal Pty Ltd (WICET) is owned and being developed by existing and potential coal exporters located in Queensland to provide increased long term export coal capacity.

The Terminal will be located at Golding Point, to the west of the existing RG Tanna and Barney Point Terminals. 

Once fully commissioned, the multi-billion dollar industry-owned and privately funded Terminal will provide over 80 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) in additional export coal capacity through the Port of Gladstone. 

The WICET consortium includes eight Stage One owners:

  • Aquila Resources
  • Bandanna Energy
  • Caledon Resources
  • Cockatoo Coal
  • Northern Energy Corporation
  • Wesfarmers Curragh
  • Yancoal
  • Glencore

Currently under construction, WICET has the combined support of the Queensland Government, Gladstone Ports Corporation and other infrastructure providers to deliver the Project using an industry-owned and privately funded structure. The first coal shipments through Stage One of the terminal are planned from late 2014.
