The Dampier Cargo Wharf (DCW) was constructed in 1982, and provides seven berths for the loading and provisioning of vessels servicing the marine industry and offshore oil and gas fields.
The fenders on the western side of the DCW were in poor condition and Duratec and DDR were engaged to replace the old high maintenance ones with a more modern and durable design for an extended service life.
The scope of works included:
- Removal of the existing cylindrical fender system.
- Concrete remediation works on the berth face and fender attachment points to reinstate suitable fixing points for the fenders, including remediation of mechanical fastenings.
- Installation of a replacement cone fender system.
- To minimise disruption, the wharf components were manufactured off-site and works implemented in two stages (half of the wharf length at a time) to ensure that essential customer services were maintained.
