Sydney, Australia

To increase its capacity for tourist vessels, Brady Marine and Civil was commissioned by HMAS Kuttabul to build the new cruise ship terminal quay at Garden Island, Sydney Harbour. The new 430 m long quay is constructed from offshore piles and prefabricated elements.

The project involved the supply and driving of over 1,000 tubular steel piles for the new quay structure, as well as the supply and assembly of precast concrete structural elements weighing around 12,000 tonnes. The chosen methodology required the use of two large barge-mounted cranes to install the piles, and extensive temporary works to support the onshore crawler cranes responsible for placing the precast concrete.
