Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal Project Details: Once fully commissioned the coal export terminal will double the coal export capacity at the port. The first coal shipments through stage one of the terminal are planned from late 2014. Stage one construction includes rail receiver facility, overland conveyors, stockyard areas for 1.9 million tonnes of coal, materials handling and sampling station, single berth, wharf and substation.
DBM Vircon's Scope of Work: DBM Vircon's scope included the design and detailing of the lifting frames for the “undressed” east and west Stacker Bridge, stacker legs, central carriage and tripper for inshore lifting of the bridges from port in China onto the transport ship and onto port in Australia into position for Sinostruct. The stacker bridge lifting study included the design and detailing of the lifting frames for the stacker bridge. DBM Vircon then carried out the Transportation Study and Temporary supports for John Holland to modify the design of the frame to allow the bridge to be transported over land provide supports while the bridge is dressed and allow lifting of the fully dressed bridge into final position.
