WGA has recently completed the design, documentation and construction support of a bauxite offloading facility at the Skardon River in far Northern Queensland.

Our scope included design of a Barge Loading Facility (BLF), a Marine Offloading Facility, cyclone moorings, navigation aids and a tidal gauge. As the site is very remote with limited access by road, the BLF was required first so that barges could offload the plant, equipment and personnel required to construct the main facility.

Construction of the facility was successfully completed on time and within budget.
