Involvement in 2019 maintenance dredging programmes

PCS has recently been involved in the 2019 maintenance dredging programs at the Ports of Hay Point and Weipa. North Queensland Bulk Ports (NQBP) has providing the following feedback on our involvement:

“Port and Coastal Solutions has been instrumental to the success of maintenance dredging undertaken at the Port of Hay Point and Port of Weipa in 2019 by NQBP. They have undertaken important studies for these ports to support long-term maintenance dredging environmental approvals from State and Commonwealth regulators. These sustainable sediment management assessment studies have included – bathymetric analysis, sediment budgets, plume modelling, predictive bathymetric models and a review of engineering and technical solutions to minimize dredging requirements. They have also provided environmental compliance reporting and specialist support and advice throughout these maintenance dredging works.”
