Civmec demonstrated integrated capabilities, an innovative manufacturing approach, and the ability to rapidly develop a remote manufacturing facility and mobilise a skilled workforce as part of our subcontract with BEST JV on the Wheatstone Project.
The subcontract was for the supply and manufacture of 12,550 precast concrete ACCROPODE II units for use in the construction of a 980 metre long mass armour breakwater for the new Material Offloading Facility. The units were manufactured over a 12 month period.
As a part of the subcontract, we expanded Civmec’s local presence with the establishment of our Onslow Precast Concrete Facility and associated quarry batch plant and camp for our specialist team.
The Wheatstone Project, located at Ashburton North, 12 kilometres west of Onslow in Western Australia, consists of two LNG trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million tonnes per annum and a domestic gas plant.
ACCROPODE II blocks are man-made unreinforced concrete objects specifically designed for the protection of exposed coastal structures. Their combined qualities produce solutions which are as reliable as traditional systems and provide time and cost efficiencies.
The Wheatstone Project is operated by an Australian subsidiary of Chevron and is a joint venture between Australian subsidiaries of Chevron, Apache Corporation, Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company (KUFPEC), Shell and Kyushu Electric Power Company (Kyushu) together with PE Wheatstone Pty Ltd (part owned by TEPCO).
