- Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group
Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group Pty Limited (NCIG) owns and operates one of Australia's largest coal export terminals with rail, storage and ship loading facilities and associated infrastructure.
The Terminal is situated in an area located on an industrial island and has strong logistical connections as part of the Hunter Valley Coal Chain integrated coal export infrastructure operation.
The key components of the NCIG terminal are:
The Inbound System
The Outbound System
The Community Support Program
The NCIG team is committed to supporting the communities in and around the area where its major infrastructure is located. To demonstrate this commitment, NCIG has implemented a Community Support Program. The aim of the program is to provide community groups within the Newcastle area with sponsorship support to help meet their objectives.
How the Program Works
- The Community Support Program has an allocation of funding which is reviewed on an annual basis.
- A committee consisting of community and NCIG representatives assess applications and provide advice on the allocation of funds.
- The committee meets twice a year to consider applications from community organisations for financial assistance.
Working with NCIG
The Terminal, based on Kooragang Island, in the Port of Newcastle, is an integral part of Australia's coal supply chain, ensuring reliability and continuity of coal supply from the Newcastle, Hunter Valley, Gloucester, Gunnedah and Western Coalfields to the world export market.
NCIG recognises that our greatest asset is our people. NCIG is committed to recruiting and selecting highly skilled and qualified people through a fair and open process. Our investment in the training and development of our people has been, and will continue to be a vital requirement to the success of NCIG.
The System allows NCIG to effectively manage the health, safety, environment and community requirements specified within the Work Health & Safety Act 2011, regulations pertaining to that Act and the Environmental consent conditions contained in the Terminal's Project Approval, as well as relevant environmental legislation including the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997.
