Port of Burnie | Berth 4 works complete

Berth strengthening work at the Port of Burnie is now complete.


26 July 2023

The second and third Parallel Motion Fenders at Burnie Berth 4 have now been replaced with two new Super Cone Fenders, and both have been commissioned.

The success of the project is largely due to the teamwork and communication between the contractor, Batchelor Construction Group; the engineering design work from Tasmanian Consulting Services; and TasPorts’ technical, operational and project teams.

With the wharf constructed in 1890 and with few construction details available, the project teams needed to show agility and action several design changes given condition and construction issues that were uncovered along the way.

This project has not only delivered a much-improved fendering system, it has also contributed to the longevity of the asset and a better understanding of the berth overall.
