9:40 AM Port of Townsville’s Channel Upgrade: Progress & Plans To Maximise Whole Of Life Assets Whilst Building Long-Term Environmental Aspects Into Port Extension.

The $193 million channel upgrade is taking on a unique combination of preparation works, rock supply, land reclamation, and large scale capital dredging. At this stage the port is ensuring the project aligns to its 2050 vision and is underway to begin the channel widening this year. In this session, Marissa will be sharing learning lessons and approaches to strategic asset management and sustainability so far:

  • Construction in the water: critical environmental actions and responses
  • Disposal considerations of such a large capital dredging project
  • Minimising disruption to commercial shipping in the channel and harbour
  • Designs to maximise whole of life asset costs and returns
