Providing financial analysis, cost-benefit modelling, reviews and recommendations.

Nature of the Engagement

Our Advisory Services team has advised Westport on numerous matters over a four year period spanning 2018/19 to 2021/22. The Westport Taskforce’s final recommendations were underpinned by the following key pieces of financial analysis provided by Western Australian Treasury Corporation (WATC):

  • Economic and commercial assessments of each option considered in the two detailed multi-criteria analyses, which were used to shortlist the project’s options.

  • A rapid cost–benefit analysis model to calculate the benefit–cost ratios of the shortlisted options.

  • Container growth rate review and recommendations.

About Westport

Westport is a complex infrastructure project being undertaken by the WA State Government that is planning for a new port in Kwinana with supporting logistics and associated integrated road and rail transport corridors.

In August 2020, the State Government endorsed the independent Westport Taskforce’s recommended location for a future container port at Kwinana to meet Western Australia’s long-term freight needs.

Improved Client Outcome

The Department of Transport has retained WATC as a financial advisor to Westport to support the next stage of the program, which involves developing a business case and other considerations to inform a future investment decision by the State Government.
