Safety & Environment

Safety is an overriding priority for IOR Terminals and it is committed to conducting its business in a manner that protects the safety of employees, others involved in its operations, the public, and the environment.

Port Bonython Terminal provides regional South Australian users a benefit through its closer proximity and thereby reduced kilometres travelled to source product. This also helps the environment with the equivalent reduction of carbon emissions. A reduction in kilometres travelled also has a marked impact in terms of operations risk mitigation and IOR Terminals is proud to contribute to the reduction of risk on our South Australian roads.

Port Bonython Fuel Terminal & Terminal Pick-Up

Our state-of-the-art fuel terminal located at Port Bonython, approximately 25 kilometres north of Whyalla and 80 kilometres south of Port Augusta is the largest diesel fuel storage facility in South Australia.

The workforce was sourced almost entirely from South Australia and where possible from the local communities around Whyalla, Port Augusta, and Port Pirie.

Terminal Features include:

  • 81ML diesel storage (3 x 27ML tanks)
  • 2 bay gantry, each bay with 3 arms (2,400 Lpm per arm)
  • Vehicle Access – up to Triple road trains
  • Open 24 hours, 7 days per week
  • Access to deep water port via existing uncongested jetty
  • Modern driver and administration facilities
