McConnell Dowell has secured an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) contract with BMA for a major infrastructure project at Hay Point Coal Terminal, near Mackay.
The project scope encompasses complete replacement of one of the three berths and shiploaders at the coal terminal.
The Berth 2 wharf and shiploader being replaced had reached end of life, the contractor said.
While replacing both facilities, the project will also improve operability with a berth extension and storm immunity (by raising of the berth).
The $200 million project – set for completion in 2023 – will be undertaken in collaboration with design engineer Aurecon.
