McConnell Dowell sign ECI Contract with BMA for Haypoint Shiploader 2 and Berth 2 Replacement Project

McConnell Dowell is pleased to announce the signing of an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) contract with the BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) for their Shiploader 2 and Berth 2 Replacement (SABR) project, at the Hay Point Coal Terminal near MacKay in Queensland.

The SABR project scope encompasses complete replacement of one of the three berths and shiploaders at the Hay Point Coal Terminal. The wharf and shiploader being replaced have reached end of life, and the SABR Project will see replacement of both facilities, and at the same time will improve operability (with a berth extension), and storm immunity (by raising of the berth).

In collaboration with BMA and their design engineer Aurecon, McConnell Dowell will work in an integrated project delivery environment to optimise the facility design and construction methodology, so the project can be completed in 2023.

The scope of the includes the provisions of constructability input, advice, and preparatory work for construction, including:

  1. Assisting with facility design;
  2. Construction execution planning; and
  3. Estimating and planning assistance.

McConnell Dowell is thrilled to be partnering with BMA once again and bringing our leading marine construction expertise to drive innovation and project certainty.
