Esperance Ports Sea and Land became part of Southern Ports Authority on the 1st of October 2014 following the merger of the Albany Port Authority, Bunbury Port Authority, and Esperance Port Authority. Esperance Ports Sea and Land is the largest nickel concentrate exporting port in the southern hemisphere and is the gateway to world markets for Australia’s principal nickel mining region. With the completion of a $54 million port upgrade project in February 2002, Esperance became the deepest port in southern Australia, capable of handling Cape size vessels up to 200,000 tonnes, plus fully loaded Panamax size vessels up to 75,000 tonnes. As a result of this development, iron ore exports through the Port totalled 9.2 million tonnes in the 2010 financial year. The Port is also a major grain exporting hub and handles bulk imports such as fuel and fertilisers. Esperance Port Sea and Land handles over 200 ships per annum and more than 11 million tonnes of trade.
