Due to a growing demand for iron ore and the subsequent need to increase export capacity at Saldanha's iron ore facility, Transnet initiated an expansion plan to increase the capacity of the bulk terminal from 28 million tons per annum (mtpa) to 60 mtpa. This was done in three phases, with phase 1a increasing capacity to 36 mtpa, phase 1b to 45 mtpa and phase 1c to 60 mtpa (Figure 1).
