Our Aim

It is the objective of the company to be the preferred supplier of marine construction, commercial diving, and commercial vessel charter services in Australia and the Pacific Region. We have over 30 years of experience in these fields and as the company has grown, so have our management systems. Our team of dedicated professionals have decades of experience in our specialised field of work, and to support our people, plant and facilities, we have internationally accredited Quality, Safety and Environmental Management Systems. These systems are 3rd party audited and certified to ISO9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001. We also hold Australian Government Building and Construction WHS accreditation through the Office Federal Safety Commission (FSC).

Our People

Our dedicated team of professionals incorporates Engineers and Project Managers, Management and Supervision, Safety and Quality staff, Admin and Finance / Commercial staff, Mariners, Boilermakers, Fitters, Commercial Divers, Blasters and Painters, Electricians, Cranes and logistics and labouring teams. We run an award-winning apprenticeship and trainee program at PMG, and have been awarded mployer of the Year a number of times at the Qld Training Awards, and have nurtured a number of Apprentice of the Year recipients.

Team size is typically around 120 employees, but can increase to up to 180+ when larger projects are running.

Our Marine Facility

Pacific Marine Group operates out of a purpose-built waterfront marine facility located at the mouth of Ross River in Townsville. The facility has over 400m of deep water frontage available for barge and vessel loading and storage, and over 20,000m2 of hardstand available for project storage, project component assembly, or bulk materials stockpiling prior to barge loading. We have a 3,000m2 office and workshop complex onsite. This building was designed and built by PMG to suit our operations perfectly. It incorporates our office and management department, our fabrication department, our fitting department, our commercial dive department, and our stores department. We also have a fully compliant blast and paint facility on site. We typically have numbers of cranes available to unload trucks and load barges or vessels, ranging from Frannas to 200t crawler cranes.

In addition to the Townsville marine facility, we own and operate a dedicated slipway in Mackay which has been servicing the region for 20+ years. The slipway can accommodate vessels up to 60m long and 600t.

We also operate an office / marine base in Cairns. The Cairns office specialises in Commercial Diving and general underwater and topside marine structure maintenance, however we are easily able to mobilise tugs, barges, cranes etc from our main base in Townsville to support larger scale marine construction projects in Cairns and Far North Queensland.
