BPE Scores Townsville Port Upgrade Contract

Townsville business Bluewater Process Engineering (BPE) has been awarded the $1.9 million contract to retrofit the supporting pylons of Berth 8/9 at the Port of Townsville.

Treasurer Curtis Pitt said that this was a proactive measure to bolster the Port’s infrastructure for the future.

“Townsville is an economic hub of the North and the Palaszczuk Government will continue investing to ensure this region has the infrastructure it needs to seize future opportunities,” Mr Pitt said.

The $1.9 million program of works will repair the concrete columns under the wharf to support Berths 8 and 9 with reinforced concrete jackets to extend their operational life.

“Berths 8 and 9 were built in 1957 and these upgrade works will double the expectancy for their operational life span for a fraction of the cost of a new berth,” added Mr Eric van Prooije, the founding partner and Managing Director of BPE.

Minister for Ports Mark Bailey said that there would be no disruptions to shipping operations during the works.
