Ross Island Wharf & Fenders

Project Overview / Description

The pontoons at 10FSB Townsville required the isolation and disconnection of all services prior to extraction from the marina berth. The pontoons were removed using a mobile gantry crane and loaded onto transport trucks and taken to the works facility which included a full blast unit to comply with environmental regulations. While onsite the pontoons were dismantled, whip blasted, repainted and reassembled with new timber bearers and compressed fiber decking. The decks also had an anti slip surface applied prior to reassembly in the marina berth.
