In April this year Coogee reached the final investment decision on significant new bulk storage at our Kwinana site to store liquid fertilizer (UAN) as well as expand existing tankage for Caustic Soda.

UAN is a key product used by farmers in Western Australia and the new 50,000MT dedicated tankage and associated road-tanker gantries will provide security of supply and enhanced efficiency through major peak crop growing periods.
Caustic Soda is an essential feedstock used in the lithium industry. Coogee currently manufactures Caustic Soda at its chlor-alkali facilities located at Kwinana and also Kemerton, Western Australia. The new additional bulk tankage will increase our storage capacity at Kwinana to 100,000 metric tonnes.
Coogee is an established major tank terminal services provider and have major tank terminals across Australia. We remain independent and our terminal storage and services are provided on an efficient commingled model that enable optimized import shipping logistics.
The UAN and Caustic Soda major tank terminals will be directly connected by pipeline to the Kwinana Bulk Jetty (KBJ).
The construction of these new facilities are well advanced and are on schedule to be commissioned and operational by Q2, 2021.
