Ship Unloader Facility
Fremantle Port Authority - Kwinana WA
Project Execution Period
September 2000 - April 2001
This project involved the installation of a continuous screw conveyor-type ship unloader at Fremantle Ports’ Bulk Cargo Jetty, to enable sulphur to be unloaded at a rate of 17,000 tonnes per day.
Scope of Work
Monadelphous was contracted to complete all structural, mechanical, electrical and instrumentation works required to install the unloader.
This included the supply, fabrication, machining, assembly and installation of all mechanical and electrical components, instrumentation and hydraulic piping systems.
The contract scope also required Monadelphous to complete shop detail drafting and undertake the application of all surface treatments.
Highlights & Achievements
- At the time the works were completed, this was believed to be the only continuous screw conveyor-type ship unloader in Australia
- Monadelphous was the first in Australia to successfully erect an unloader using a single shore-mounted crane, as opposed to the industry standard installation via barge-mounted cranes
- Works were completed with an impeccable safety and industrial relations record
- All works were completed on schedule, with all site works also executed within budget via a schedule of rates.
