A world first in maritime design

Wagner Pinkenba Wharf is the largest composite fibre infrastructure job completed to date anywhere in the world, with the highest capacity (40,000 tonne ships), and the largest use of structural fibreglass re-bar in Australia in a single job.

In a world-first heavy-duty application of new generation building materials, Wagner Corporation aimed to reinvent the design of wharf structures by using WagnersCFT and WagnersEFC® in the decking systems’ construction. The end result a 100 per cent non-corrosive, non-ferrous modular deck that can be exposed to all required loads, while providing long-term durability and low levels of maintenance.


  • Vessels of up to 10.0m SWAD Brisbane can be berthed.
  • Well lit with LED lights on EFC light poles providing day-like conditions after hours.
  • Port of Brisbane Port North storage area is 100 m from the wharf gate and can be rented from the Port of Brisbane. There is no lay down area or storage at Wagner Pinkenba Wharf.
  • Primarily solid bulk cargoes like cement clinker, slag, gypsum, grain and breakbulk (pipes and modules) are among regular cargoes.
  • Stevedoring can be arranged through well established Stevedoring Companies.
  • Trucking can be arranged as required.
  • Vessel Agency, Shipbroking and Port Captaincy services can be provided.
  • Fresh water can be provided on request.

The next stage of wharf development will see automated offloading from ships via conveyors to the storage shed and proposed clinker storage area, which will increase efficiencies even further.
