Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) awarded McConnell Dowell the design and construction of the Pilbara Iron Ore Infrastructure Project at Port Hedland in Western Australia. FMG is positioning itself as the third major iron ore producer in Australia. MacDow's scope of work included a load-out berth, a lay-by berth and navigation aids. The load-out berth comprises a 100 m long approach jetty complete with roadway and elevated conveyor trusses; a transfer station platform with wharf conveyor, drive and belt change-out areas; and a wharf structure to supports the shiploader. The wharf includes shiploader rails; six independent berthing dolphins including fenders and quick release mooring hooks and controls; and trafficable concrete deck required for maintenance and associated traffic. The lay-by berth comprises eight independent berthing and mooring dolphins with interconnecting catwalks. Included on the berth were remotely controlled quick release mooring hooks and capstans on all dolphins. A total of five new navigation aids were designed and installed within the confines of the Port Hedland Port Authority (PHPA) inner harbour. Piling of the 341 piles were carried out by two piling barges with 350 tonne cranes, and a construction barge with a 180 tonne crane. Each of these barges was in turn supplied by four material/supply barges. Piles were driven using a piling frame system specifically designed by the company and predominantly constructed by MacDow's fabrication yard in Batam, Indonesia. The piling works included installation of 341 no. 1,016 diameter piles totalling 6,230 tonnes with wall thickness of 20, 22 and 35 mm. The piles ranged in size from 38 m to 55 m long. A modular approach was used to construct the deck structures. Steel modules form the main structural elements and incorporate pre-cast concrete planks, conveyor galleries and associated equipment. The modules were laser aligned off site to ensure on site alignment required only minor adjustment. The modular approach minimised on-site work, reduced the overall programme duration, and ensured achievement of our first milestone date for the arrival of the client's shiploader. Overall the project was completed on time and on budget, and MacDow's performance was recognised by its peers with the awarding of the WA Civil Contractor's Federation 2008 Construction Excellence Award. Based on the performance on this project, MacDow was awarded the first phase of the expansion of the facility. This includes the addition of a new approach jetty; a new transfer tower; new main loadout berth; new lay-by berth; new berthing dolphins and associated works. With the current growth and expansions planned for the Pilbara area over the next few years, McConnell Dowell is at the forefront of the design and construction of new civil marine projects to service the resources boom.

Hamersley Iron awarded McConnell Dowell Constructors (Aust) Pty Ltd, in joint venture, the contract to construct The Dampier Port Upgrade (DPU) project in Dampier, Western Australia. Delivered in stages, MacDow was responsible for the construction of Phase A. This involved the construction of a 455 m wharf extension and a new access jetty, tail end structure and electrical deck. Modifications to the existing wharf were also required. The upgrade of their Dampier Port Facilities was the centrepiece of Hamersley Iron's A$1 billion capital works program for their iron ore assets in Western Australia. The main wharf extension required 24 vertical and 72 raking piles which were 1,200 mm in diameter and up to 38 m long. The wharf piles were driven through a purpose built frame and gates; and were supported on spud piles for stability and accuracy of driving. A fleet of barges equipped with specialist piling equipment was mobilised from our Batam Fabrication Facility in Indonesia. A key part of the MacDow solution was the use of modularisation to speed up the construction program. Four deck modules each 54 m long and 18 m wide were cast in Perth and freighted to the site by a heavy-lift ship mobilised from Amsterdam. Each module weighed almost 400 tonnes and was lifted into place, "instantly" adding 216 metres of new deck to the wharf. Eighteen new dolphins were also constructed using a cluster of four raker piles in the centre under the wharf and 2 longitudinal raker piles. These piles ranged in size from 700 mm to 1200 mm in diameter. Drawing on our mechanical and electrical expertise, the project team delivered new materials handling infrastructure including a conveyor system; transfer tower; and drive and take up structures. An extension and modifications were also made to the existing conveyor system. Working within the confines of an existing operational wharf required close collaboration and constant communication between the MacDow project team and Hamersley's operations staff. The facility remained fully operational throughout the expansion. Delivered on time and on budget, our performance on the project led to the negotiation and awarding of Phase 2 of the expansion works as the sole contractor.

A standoff is brewing at one of the world's biggest gas projects on Darwin's doorstep. Two contractors at the Ichthys Inpex venture are squabbling over payments as the project falls over time, over budget and sends one contractor's share price plunging. With more redundancies slated, I took a look at the bigger picture as the mining boom slows, companies serving the industry suffer and ask: is the current economic climate the new normal?

BHP Billiton's TEMCO manganese plant at Bell Bay in Tasmania have continuously polluted the Tamar Valley over a number of years.This plant is renown for its cosmetic policies and procedures amongst the regions contractor groups and the wider community.The EPA were notified of these incidents and TEMCO were found to have breached their obligations with the EPA. They are also in breach of BHP Billiton's own Environmental Policies. This plant has been closed for 3 months for a review of its operations and it has been decided to commence operations again shortly. The EPA now need to get on the front foot and prosecute this company for failing to meet its obligations and not allow this pollution to continue. Honesty and Integrity from this company I think not! BHP Billiton's TEMCO management have condoned a negative workplace culture of bullying, assaults (physical and sexual), harassment, intimidation, food tampering. Although most of the incidents had been reported, management had chosen to either covered them up or not investigated them thoroughly. Management would then victimise the employee or employee's that made the complaint. Examples of such incidents: An employee removed a cobb of corn from another employee's dinner plate while he was out of the room and placed it in his anus and then placed it back on the plate. This was done while a TEMCO supervisor was watching. When the employee returned to eat his dinner the supervisor and the other employee sat back and laughed. An employee rubbing his penis up against other employee's a number of times. One such employee now the Production Manager. There have been a number of assaults on site, including an 18 year old contractor who was assaulted three times by the same employee. A Safety Department with a Manager who thinks it is not right to protect a Contractor from being assaulted by Temco employee. A Safety Officer with Drugs, Assault & Firearms convictions. A Human Resources Advisor who's defence is these incidents occur in every company. Where else would there be a Phantom Shitter ( employee or employee's ) who continually leave human faeces lumped or smeared everywhere in the Temco cribrooms, toilets, gym or any workplace. Why would any Investor or any other Company buy into this 1960's cultured and backward mismanaged organisation. It is now December 2015 and this company has changed its name to South32 and a lot of these issues still occur. Recently a number of employees were escorted from this site under investigation for Bullying and Harassment after a group of employees made complaints. The previous Human Resources manager was terminated but a number of staff involved in a number of these issues still remain. A change of name will not change the culture within this site, it has to happen from the manager down. Over the years there has been a number of employees at this site that have committed suicide or contemplated suicide from the way they have been treated. This Site needs an overhaul of its management people from outside and get away from the bad recruitment decisions of the past that have been made for the wrong reasons. CHANGING THE NAME FROM BHP BILLITON TO SOUTH32 WILL NOT CHANGE HOW POORLY TEMCO HAS BEEN MANAGE FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME!

Well there’s nothing like business opportunities with major LNG projects to get the attention of industrial suppliers and service providers. A recent report on Projectory on the Award of a $170m contract for the offshore LNG Gorgon project attracted strong interest in the last fortnight. Downer EDI won a 12 month contract for work at the project on Barrow Island, with an option to extend the period. The contract is for miscellaneous works, and will create approximately 400 new jobs, predominately located on Barrow Island. The scope of the work encompasses: structural and piping erection; mechanical installations; electrical and instrumentation services; civil works; pre-commissioning; and commissioning/start-up assistance. While attention may have peaked on major projects in the West a report on Projectory on contract awarded for the construction of a $1bn Melbourne suburb also drew considerable attention. The contract has been awarded for the construction of a new Melbourne suburb that will provide 4,000 new homes and a waterfront town centre. Lend Lease will begin immediate construction of the $1 billion, 435ha Harpley project. Well back to WA and the award of a significant power supply contract in the Pilbara received much attention from Projectory subscribers. Horizon Power has signed a contract with APR Energy to deliver power to the Pilbara from four new turbines. The duel-fuel gas turbines are due to be installed at the South Hedland plant and producing power by October 2014. Horizon Power had a contract with Forge Group to supply generation for the Hedland Precinct Power Project (HPPP) but that contract was terminated in February this year when Forge became insolvent. Well back to the Eastern States where a contract awarded for a $580 million shopping centre expansion in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs attracted strong interest. Probuild has been selected as preferred contractor to construct the latest expansion of Chadstone Shopping Centre. The development will include the construction of 40 new retail spaces, a cinema complex, a 10-level office building and a hotel. In addition, 800 extra car park spaces and new transport links will be built. Well Queensland finally gets a look in with a recent announcement spruiking hundreds of new jobs in Bowen Basin from a $313m mine expansion. Cockatoo Coal recently announced its Baralaba Coal Expansion Project, 150km west of Rockhampton, would lift coal production from 1 million tonne per annum (mtpa) to 3.5 mtpa by 2016. As a result of the expansion, the resource producer will require more suppliers and employees. It will create 200 new jobs throughout the next two years. Cockatoo aims to employ locally across its project sites and, while staff numbers are at full capacity for now, the next round of recruitment will occur in 2015. Another Queensland project has drawn attention from the industrial supply and service community following announcement of a $440m infrastructure project to create 2500 jobs in southeast Queensland. Queensland Transport and Main Roads recently released details of the proposed Mooloolah River Interchange Upgrade on the Sunshine Coast. A key contact confirmed that developing planning was underway for a north-south transport corridor connecting Caloundra, Kawana, Mooloolaba and Maroochydore.

Australian Miners Lose Jobs Over The Harlem Shake in Working Hour Thirty seconds of fun has cost up to 15 miners their jobs in Western Australia. A group of workers from Barminco and Hahn Electrical Contracting were fired for their involvement in a re-enactment of the viral dance craze, the Harlem Shake. The news comes as US aviation safety authorities investigate an incident where an airline allowed university students and passengers to perform the popular dance in the aisles of a plane during a flight. One of the sacked miners claims no safety regulations were breached, and a second says no-one was endangered in the stunt at Agnew gold mine, the West Australian reports. The Barminco staff have not only been fired, but banned for life, according to a letter of dismissal. Apparently all the miners involved were wearing helmets, lamps, and glasses and had oxygen on hand. The workers believe their only breach of rules was removing their long-sleeve shirts. "It was 2.30 in the morning and we thought we just had to do something to get us going again," one unnamed worker said. "Sometimes you lose a bit of momentum at that time of the morning." It took a week for all of the miners to lose their jobs after the 30-second clip was uploaded to YouTube. Meanwhile in the US, the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) is looking at an incident on board a Frontier Airlines flight from Colorado Springs to San Diego. The university students, members of their school's ultimate frisbee team, had permission from the flight crew to perform the Harlem Shake and recruit fellow passengers using the PA system. A video of the shenanigans - Harlem Shake Frontier Flight 157 - had more than three millions views on YouTube at 8am AEDT. The FAA has taken more of a dim view on the fun and games. A spokesman said: "If we find any evidence of a violation of Federal Aviation Regulations, then we would pursue it." The airline says it followed safety procedures and turned the seatbelt sign off. Student Matt Zelin told his school's newspaper is surprised the incident is under review. "When we got to the airport we were kind of ready and had brought costumes and stuff," he said. "Obviously I hope that this whole situation is solved with the FAA. "I don't see there being any reason why this should cause any trouble. "We asked the staff and they said it was safe." That will be a question for the authorities. But as one YouTube user said: "life is too short not to have a banana suit on a plane". Restart Up to 15 workers at the Agnew gold mine in the Goldfields have been sacked and banned for life from every Barminco project in the world after performing the Harlem Shake dance craze on site
