AW Maritime has been engaged by TasPorts to provide specialist consultancy services to assist with planning and delivering its dredging works program. As part of this engagement, we have recently worked with the TasPorts staff to manage the widening of a berth pocket to Berth 4 in Burnie Port on the North West Tasmanian coast. AW Maritime delivered the project as part of a larger program of works within TasPorts’ Port Master Plan. This was necessary to accommodate larger Bass Strait container and cargo vessels which are due to arrive early in 2019. The Heron Construction Co. Ltd were the contractors for the dredging works which were completed two months ahead of schedule.
