Start Date January 1998
End Date September 1998


Project Control Pty Ltd were engaged as the Construction Planners for the Joint Venture that managed the construction of a 3rd Shipping Berth as part of the expansion of the Coal Loading Facility. The $90mil project involved;

  • Harbour dredging
  • Construction of a rock revetment
  • Driving concrete and steel piles
  • Construction of a concrete berth
  • Extension of the coal loading conveyor and controls.

There were a number of obstacles to overcome on this project, in particular;

  • a very short time frame, 9 months, a tight budget,
  • EPA requirements regarding the dredged material,
  • underwater bank slippage after initial dredging was completed,
  • as well as the usual contractor claims and delays.
