Our 50 Year Masterplan
Flinders Port Holdings Pty Ltd (FPH) recently completed its first long-term Masterplan. Through its subsidiary Flinders Ports Pty Ltd (FP), FPH is the largest port operator and the primary port authority in South Australia, operating and maintaining seven ports across the State, those being Port Adelaide, Thevenard, Port Pirie, Port Lincoln, Klein Point, Port Giles, and Wallaroo.
The Masterplan is a culmination of the outcomes of multiple reports prepared by our masterplanning partner, Black Quay, and FPH throughout the project’s 12-month timeline. The FPH master planning process was designed to ensure global best practice in strategic port planning, while also ensuring that localised factors and complexities were also fully considered.
