EOI Invited for IMOC Scheme
Expressions of Interest (EOI) from the industry have been invited by the Pilbara Ports Authority (PPA) for the design and construction of the new Integrated Marine Operations Center (IMOC) at the Port of Port Hedland.
This significant project, announced by the Minister for Transport in July 2015, will facilitate the safe and efficient movement of increasing numbers of vessels through the harbor.
The project involves the design and construction of a new control tower and maritime operations center, which will control the marine operations of the port including the harbor master function, dredging management, port security, state of the art vessel traffic services and equipment, marine pilot briefing facilities and an improved Incident Control capability.
The IMOC, which will be constructed as a sustainable and energy efficient facility, is expected to boost the local economy with extra jobs created during the construction phase.
