Media Release: 12 February 2024

Certain port infrastructure at the Kwinana Bulk Jetty, located in Kwinana, Western Australia, including the Nutrien Ag Solutions bulk fertiliser site (holding granular products only) were impacted by a fire incident on Friday 9th February 2024

As a precautionary measure 11 people were evacuated safely from the Nutrien site.

“Nutrien remains focused on ensuring our products continue to be dispatched to our farmer customers across the state in a safe and timely manner. We are assessing the damage to our site and working closely with Fremantle Ports to confirm new access routes, adjusted shipping schedules and alternate storage solutions to ensure we minimise any impact to our supply chain," said Andrew Duperouzel, Region Manager, West at Nutrien Ag Solutions.

“It’s business as usual for Nutrien’s other storage depots across Western Australia, so we are still receiving and dispatching product from our other locations including Geraldton, Esperance, Albany and Henderson.

“Our liquid Bulk N fertiliser storage and chemical manufacturing (Genfarm) facilities were not impacted by this fire incident

“We will continue to keep you updated and we encourage our customers to talk to their local branch about their input needs.”
