Australian specialty engineer Duratec has been selected for a A$48 million wharf remediation works contract for BHP WA Iron Ore.
The work will take place at BHP’s Berth C and D at Finucane Island, Port Hedland, Western Australia.
The scope of work includes repairing steel piles and steel members; replacement of steel ladders; concrete remediation; pile wrapping repairs; pile jacket installation; fabrication and installation of a new raw water line and hose connection points; approach jetty and maintenance jetty repair at Berth D; and demolition of two access landings (Berth C and between Berth C&D).
Work on the project starts immediately, and a commencement on-site is scheduled for March. Completion is anticipated no later than February 2025.
Earlier this month, Duratec confirmed it was retained by several contractors to undertake a blast-and-paint contract for the steel-tube kiln at Lynas Rare Earth’s new A$500 million processing facility in Kalgoorlie.
The facility will process rare earth concentrate from the Mt. Weld mine; that concentrate will then be exported and further refined for use in electronics.
