BMA Hay Point — HPX 3 Expansion Works

Hay Point, Queensland, Australia

Hay Point Coal Terminal is one of the largest coal export ports in the world. Walz Group had previously worked directly for the owner-operator, BMA, to urgently replace a footbridge . We were subsequently engaged to support BMA to deliver the third major expansion of the facility.

As part of this contract, Walz Group provided marine equipment and specialist personnel to support the shutdown scheduled as part of the project, and remove associated temporary works. Throughout the project, we continually adapted to the ever-changing weather conditions and modifications to schedule. By working closely with our client and taking an agile approach to resourcing requirements, we were able to meet all project milestones.

In its entirety, the expansion increased capacity at the terminal from 44 million tonnes to 55 million tonnes. The work included construction of a new berth and land reclamation, as well as building and fitting out new trestles, conveyers, and ship loaders.

Specifically, our scope included the provision of the following specialist equipment together with expert operators.

  • 1 x self-elevating platform with Favco M2480D tower crane
  • 1 x self-elevating platform with 250t crawler crane
  • 1 x self-elevating platform with 100t crawler crane
  • 2 x flat top barges
  • 2 x tugs
  • 1 x work boat
  • 1 x crew boat
