Port Hedland Tug Facilities


Streamlining delivery through design

Port Hedland Tug Facilities


The project included the delivery and installation of mooring pontoons, cyclone moorings, access walkways and services for the new harbour tugs that will service the Capesize vessels shipping iron ore from Port Hedland. Designing the cyclone moorings to withstand extreme weather systems was critical. BESIX successfully achieved this through close collaboration with a local engineering firm. By utilising 3D BIM modelling for the structural design phase, potential issues were detected before fabrication commenced. This provided Fortescue Metals Group with the best and most cost effective overall solution.
