Maintenance Burrup works completed
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.
