AMC1 Wharf Extension and New Finger Wharf

Employees of Ertech and Geomarine recently gathered at the Civil Contractors Federation WA Earth Awards dinner to celebrate excellence in construction.

The AMC1 Wharf Extension and New Finger Wharf Project secured a finalist position in the hotly contested $30 – $75 million category.  The event, organised by the CCF WA, was a great opportunity for team members to come together to celebrate a project that Ertech and Geomarine are very proud of.  Both companies seamlessly brought the best of their expertise forward to deliver an excellent outcome for our group and for the client.

The Project delivered for DevelopmentWA involved designing and constructing a 153m wharf extension at the Australian Marine Complex Common User Facility (AMC CUF) increasing berthing capacity for users of the common user facility. It has been designed to accommodate current and future classes of Royal Australian Navy (RAN) vessels and supports full-cycle docking for maintenance and upgrade activities.

Congratulations team!  We eagerly await the next one!

About the Project

Stage 1 of the project involved the design and construction of a 153m wharf extension to AMC Berth 1, associated berth pocket deepening alongside the wharf extension, a new substation and services building, upgrades to the existing 60Hz vessel power supply system, and upgrades to the fire water system, potable water, and sewer supply services to vessels. These works were constructed alongside an existing operational wharf.

A new finger wharf was designed for the proposed Berths 7 and 8 which will further extend the capability of the AMC facility to accommodate larger navy vessels and full cycle docking of existing Collins Class and Future Attack Class submarines.
