Shiploader Upgrade at Geraldton Port

The Mid West Ports Authority engaged WGA, working with Lucid Projects Australia, in a major electrical upgrade of a shiploader at their Geraldton Port. We assisted in the client engineer role for the design of a new Motor Control Centre room, which was successfully installed on the rear of the shiploader during a planned shutdown.

As part of the works, WGA also undertook a review of the wharf structure – both steel substructure and concrete deck – to verify its capacity, as there have been a succession of upgrades throughout the wharf’s 50 year life. The review included the design of refurbishments to the wharf to extend the life of the structure.
