PORT Waratah Coal Services has taken another step in implementing its environmental strategy supporting the Terminal 4 project by acquiring 242 hectares of land at Tomago from the Hunter Development Corporation.
In close proximity to the T4 site, the area includes significant saltmarsh meadows and wetlands.
Under the terms of the acquisition, PWCS is obliged to restore and enhance the land’s biodiversity features to boost migratory bird and fauna activity.
Some parts of the land have been in decline for many years, primarily because of large restorative costs.
“PWCS is very proud to secure this significant land and play a long-term role enhancing its environmental value,” Chief executive Hennie du Plooy said.
