Australia’s Abbot’s Point plans to expand its capacity 11-fold to become the world’s biggest coal harbour.

Port manager North Queensland Bulk Ports plans to expand Abbot’s capacity to 230 million tons of coal a year from its current capacity of 21 million tons.

The port, which has one terminal, has awarded BHP Billiton and Hancock Coal a contract to develop two terminals at Abbot Point to increase its export capacity to 110 million tons.

North Queensland Bulk Ports will award contracts for the development of additional coal terminals to expand capacity by the end of 2010, reports Bloomberg.
