To replace the Berth 3 deck and fender at the port of Port Hedland, a $33.5 million contract has been awarded to specialist mooring installation and maintenance contractor Total AMS Pty Ltd.
Construction works will now commence including the demolition of the existing deck, construction of a new reinforced deck, installation of new wharf fenders and other ancillary works. Designed to maximise opportunities for WA business to secure work on government contracts, the upgrade is a pilot project under the Western Australian Government’s WA Industry Participation Strategy (WAIPS).
With more than 20 subcontractor positions, the project is estimated to directly deliver 50 local jobs.
