Another QuayLink milestone reached

One down, 49 to go! The Rebecca Lily has installed the first tubular pile for QuayLink in the Port of Devonport.


30 May 2023

Piling has started with TasPorts' contractors Hazell Brady Joint Venture bringing in the specially fitted piling barge, Rebecca Lily, to work on QuayLink’s Terminal 3.

More than 1000 tonnes of steel, in the form of 50 tubular steel piles and sheets have now arrived, signaling the start of the wharf construction.

We’re also using an innovative fusion bonded epoxy coating system that offers significant durability enhancements and lower ongoing maintenance requirements for the piles.

The tubular steel piles are being transported by a barge from the west side of the river (where they are being stored in a laydown area) to Berth 3E, Devonport East.

With a 500T piling rig and S80 hydrohammer, the Rebecca Lily will work 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off with both an impact hammer and a vibratory hammer.

The works will take around six months and are being undertaken in accordance with TasPorts’ Environmental Standard for Noise noting every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the surrounding community.
