Works are nearing completion on the new Mackay tug berth project for North Queensland Bulk Ports.
It has been a massive job fabricating, then blasting and painting the 35m x 6.4m x 1.8m steel pontoon and 41m x 3.3m gangway in-house at our marine facility in Townsville. All has been built locally with locally supplied materials.
The pontoon was launched recently, and the gangway was loaded onto our PMG124 barge, for tandem towing to Mackay with our new Tug Sea Charlie, which is a Damen 2609 Shoalbuster, and sistership to our PMG Tarka.
The piling works on site are nearing completion in preparation for mounting the new pontoon and gangway.
