Exmouth Boat Harbor Contract Awarded

Work on the Exmouth Boat Harbor upgrade, made possible by a Royalties for Regions investment of $18.3 million, is progressing on time with the awarding of the contract for the biggest component of the project.

Transport Minister Dean Nalder said that Wangara-based Ertech Pty Ltd. won the $8.34 million contract following an extensive expressions of interest and tender process, and would deliver the 88 meter extension to the wharf, hardstand extension, four new trawler pens and raising of the southern breakwater.

About 7,600 cubic meters of locally sourced rock will be used to increase the height of the breakwater to protect the trawler pens, while about 140 tonnes of steel will be used to extend the wharf to provide a new heavy lift zone and hardstand, significantly increasing the capacity of the facility,” Mr Nalder said.

Work will commence on the marine structures and civil works in mid-July, ensuring the upgrade project remains on schedule for completion by mid-2017.

Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said that he was looking forward to the Exmouth Boat Harbor upgrade moving to the next and most important stage of implementation.

As the largest harbor south of the Pilbara, Exmouth is strategically well placed and this upgrade reinforces the facility as an important maritime hub in the State’s north,” Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said.
