The package involves the manufacture of approximately 15,000 tonnes of modules made up of 54 individual modules, including three jacket frames, topside modules, conveyor modules and transfer towers.
The jacket structures are the largest modules we have ever fully fabricated and assembled undercover, standing 33 metres high, 37 metres wide and weighing approximately 2,100 tonnes. They are a prime example of the infrastructure that Civmec is capable of producing and will be shipped to Queensland from the Australian Marine Complex (AMC) in Henderson.
Fabrication and assembly of the majority of components for the project is being undertaken at our Henderson facility, while complex stainless steel handrails, topside module box girders and dogbone connectors are being, or have been, fabricated in our Newcastle facility and shipped to Henderson for installation. The dogbone connectors are the largest components to ever be built in our NSW workshop, each weighing 520 tonnes, and were transported by sea to their final destination in Queensland.
