Topside Jetty Replacement

  • After years of service and minimal maintenance, the jetty employed in loading cargo ships by DSL was in need of structural repairs and upgrades.
  • Austral was contracted to carry out these maintenance and construction works on behalf of dampier salt limited. 
  • Replacement of existing deck with 11 new pre-cast concrete modules 
  • Replacement of the headstocks currently on the structure 
  • Blasting and painting of existing structural piles to Rio Tinto specification 
  • Patch repair works along side blast and paint works completed from swing stage arms. Works occurred in areas where corrosion was show to cause a non-negligible change in the pile thickness 
  • Replacement of the off shore conveyor belt system 
  • Replacement of the onshore conveyor belt system, and installation of all new associated foundations
