PMG have signed a Design and Construct contract with Dai Nippon Construction for an ocean outfall associated with the new Port Moresby Sewerage System Upgrade (POMSSUP) Project. The project is a Japan International Corporation Association (JICA) aid project with the PNG Government which, when constructed, will change the lives of Port Moresby residents and deliver enormous environmental benefits by providing a complete sewerage system, something the residents of Port Moresby have never had before – trunk lines, branch lines, a sewerage treatment plant and 900m ocean outfall.
The outfall will involve installation of around 750m of 900mm diameter HDPE pipe through a reef flat, and around 100m of deeper water over the reef edge - laying to around 27m water depth. A 50m long diffuser structure will be installed in 27m water depth at the end of the outfall.
This project will utilise most areas of our in house resources – Project Management, Construction, Marine, Dive, Fabrication, Fitting, Blast and Paint and Admin.
PMG has a long history of working in PNG and we look forward to delivering another quality project.
