John Holland has been awarded a $150 million subcontract for the construction of marine offloading facilities as part of Gladstone LNG’s proposed Curtis Island LNG facility.
Under the subcontract, to be delivered for EPC contractor Bechtel Australia Pty Ltd, John Holland will design and construct a new ferry berth, a roll on/roll off berth, load on/load off berth and a bulk aggregate unloading berth.
Included in the contract scope are the engineering, design, procurement, supply, fabrication, transportation, erection and installation works necessary to complete the new marine facilities.
John Holland’s Group Managing Director, Glenn Palin, said: “John Holland has a long history in the energy and resources sector and a proven track record in the delivery of largescale marine infrastructure works. This project will draw on our industry leading capabilities in this area, underpinning our strategic push into the LNG sector.”
Executive General Manager of John Holland’s Energy & Resources businesses, Brendan Petersen, said: “The marine offloading facilities are an integral part of the GLNG project. The timely completion of this facility is critical to the overall success of the GLNG project. We are proud to be entrusted to deliver this important component as it highlights our capability to undertake complex and critical infrastructure in the energy and resources sector. We look forward to further developing our relationship with GLNG and Bechtel”
The contract builds on John Holland’s recent success in the energy and resources and minerals sectors, following a recent FEED contract win for Woodside Energy’s Browse LNG development in Western Australia and the ongoing delivery of Apache Energy’s Devil Creek onshore gas plant, also in Western Australia. John Holland also continues to deliver the major marine infrastructure expansion projects across Australia, including expansion works at the Cape Lambert Port B project in Western Australia, the Abbot Point Coal Terminal in Bowen, Queensland, the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal in Mackay, Queensland and the Kooragang Island terminal expansion in Newcastle, New South Wales.
Construction of the new marine facilities will commence immediately with completion expected in 2012.
