Sandvik required 2 x new complete Stacker Reclaimers to be transported by barge between Port of Mackay, and Port of Hay Point. The cargo was to be rolled off at a dedicated temporary landing facility at Hay Point.
PMG’s workscope was to provide all barge and marine logistics, Naval Architect work for roll off modelling and seafastening design, all seafastening provision and installation, all Tow Survey work, and co-ordination with heavy haulage contractor (Mammoet).
Each stacker reclaimer was modularised to 9 bargeloads, making the total job 18 bargeloads.
Cargo was loaded onto PMG’s barge by heavy lift ship’s crane in Port of Mackay, and placed onto prefabricated and placed stands.
PMG then installed all required seafastening, had the Tow Survey completed by a full time project Tow Surveyor, and towed the barge to Half Tide Tug Harbour, where the barge was then docked at a temporary landing facility, heavy ramps lifted into place, seafastenings removed, and cargo rolled off the barge on the suitable tide height.
