Nyrstar Port Pirie -- SWPS-Marine Works Project

Following an open tender process, Maritime Constructions was awarded a contract by Nyrstar Port Pirie to install an underwater outfall pipeline from their new Sea Water Pump Station (SWPS).  The works involved the dredging of a trench (approximately 8,000m3) using a cutter-suction dredge, installation of 800 sqm of concrete mattress adjacent to the SWPS for slope stability towards the intake pumps and the installation of 150m long (1200mm dia down to 355mm dia) HDPE pipeline from the SWPS to the edge of the shipping channel in the Port Pirie River.  This project is part of Nyrstar’s overall Port Pirie Transformation Project, to upgrade their old lead smelter, that has been in operation since 1880, to an advanced poly-metallic processing and recovery facility with an improved environmental footprint.

Following our success in the South Australian CCF Earth Awards, Maritime Constructions have been awarded the National CCF Earth Award for the Sediment Management of the Patawalonga Lakes System (Category 1 - projects up to $2million).

This is the first time we have been honoured at the National awards, with all five judges unanimous in selecting Maritime Constructions as the winner in our category, which comprised of eight entries from around Australia. This project was yet another example of our extremely skilled and competent people coming together to deliver an outstanding project outcome. We continuously strive to develop new techniques to respond to ever changing environmental challenges. To be recognised for this on a national scale is an honour that Maritime Constructions is proud to display.


CCF Earth Award 2015 - Sediment Management at the Patawalonga lakes System

10.09.2015 16:30

Maritime Constructions are proud to announce that we were recently awarded our fifth CASE / CCF Earth Award for the Sediment Management of the Patawalonga Lakes System (Category 1 - projects up to $2million). The project involved the dredging of the Patawalonga sediment basins, dewatering of the sediment in geotextile tubes, and preparation of the material for beneficial re-use through a process of bioremediation.
 

Our innovative dewatering solution ensured zero return of silts to the water column and vast improvement to environmental amenity, in a project that involved multiple stakeholders and a keen community interest. This paired with the transformation of the contaminated spoil into a certified organic, nutrient dense soil improver saw us provide a holistic solution to the client, beyond the scope of the tender.
 

Delivering specialist and innovative marine infrastructure solutions takes a united team of quality, experienced people. To be recognised consistently for our dedication to the improvement of our environment is something we take great pride in, and plan to continue to achieve long into the future.
