• Efficient transport of prefabricated piles from Perth to Exmouth.

Challenges

This project was undertaken in an area of high environmental sensitivity. To address this, we established a work process to enable a small amount as possible of hydrocarbons on board the barge and daily refills, spill kits on the barge with back up in the workshop, as well as awareness sessions for the workforce.

The footing that holds the gangway is at the top of the rip rap wall. Rip rap rock retaining wall installed too far out into the canal. These rocks had to be removed and they are up to 500kg each. There were also hidden rocks under the concrete path that needed to be removed.
