Main­te­nance Bur­rup works com­pleted

Pilbara News - - News -

Pil­bara-based GBTK Projects has com­pleted main­te­nance works in the Bur­rup Strate­gic In­dus­trial Area ser­vice cor­ri­dor.

GBTK Projects used a fiveper­son team to un­der­take bi­tu­men seal­ing and im­prove drainage near the pipe­line link­ing the Yara Pil­bara Fer­tilis­ers plant to Dampier Port.

GBTK Projects man­ager Jamie Arm­strong said the work on the ser­vice cor­ri­dor had sig­nif­i­cant con­straints to over­come to pre­vent dam­age to the pipe­line. “No me­chan­i­cal plant was per­mit­ted within 2m of the pipe­line and had to be un­der­taken by hand with con­stant su­per­vi­sion,” he said.

LandCorp West Pil­bara re­gional man­ager Travis McNaught said it was the first time GBTK had been in­volved in a Landcorp project.

“In Kar­ratha there con­tin­ues to be strong part­ner­ships forged with lo­cal busi­nesses which have been di­rectly in­volved in the var­ied projects we are man­ag­ing such as The Quar­ter, the Kar­ratha city cen­tre re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion, through to new com­mu­nity parks in the award­win­ning Bayn­ton West Es­tate,” he said. The Bur­rup SIA is planned to ac­com­mo­date mul­ti­ple fu­ture pro­po­nents with the ser­vice cor­ri­dor al­low­ing for the ex­port of their prod­ucts through the port.
