BAM Clough completes iron-ore jetty in West Australia
Commissioned by Fortescue Metals Group, the joint venture with BAM Clough has finished building its fifth transfer jetty for iron ore in Port Hedland, West Australia.
The project entailed the design and construction of a quay with a length of 306 metres for a mobile loading installation, seven buffers and the supply and installation of conveyor belts. The design was prepared by BAM's marine design office, Delta Marine Consultants. BIM technology was the key to speeding up the design and construction process.
BAM Clough, a 50/50 joint venture of BAM International and Clough Ltd., established in 1964, has been a successful partnership for more than 50 years. BAM Clough has built 15 large jetty and marine projects in Australia and Papua New Guinea. The joint venture is currently building the Chevron Wheatstone LNG off-loading Jetty at Onslow. BAM Clough has already realised the jetty and off-loading platform for the Ichthys LNG project at Darwin.
