7 Aurecon Ports and coastal Winner Engineers Excellence Award (NT) 2007 Darwin City Waterfront Redevelopment Australia Client Northern Territory Government The vision of the Darwin City Waterfront project was to develop the old industrial foreshore area into a world class precinct for residents and visitors. To deliver this vision, Aurecon designed a breakwater to form a lagoon and marina which could be utilised for recreational purposes. The lagoon also created a focal point for the iconic Darwin Convention and Exhibition Centre, public amenities and residential units (also all designed by Aurecon). To undertake the innovative designs, extensive coastal engineering services were called on including determination of design wave criteria based on Monte Carlo analysis, physical model testing, unique wave deflector wall design and lagoon water quality numerical modelling. Joint winner Australian Bulk Handling Awards 2010 Category: Bulk Handling Facility of the Year (Resources and Infrastructure) Winner WorkCover NSW SafeWork Awards Winner Facility of the Year Category: WorkCover NSW Leadership Safety Awards 2011 Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group (NCIG) Coal Terminal Australia Client NCIG The NCIG, comprising a consortium of six coal companies in the Hunter Valley region, successfully tendered to develop a greenfield coal export terminal at the Port of Newcastle. With a start-up capacity of 30 Mtpa, the project was the world's largest initial build for a coal export terminal. Aurecon, in joint venture with Hatch, provided full engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for this Phase 1 development, which has been specifically designed for staged expansion from 30 Mtpa to 66 Mtpa, with further expansions possible. The USD 1 billion project was delivered six weeks ahead of schedule and within budget. Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal Australia Client DBCT Management Pty Ltd Aurecon has been integrally involved in the ongoing planning, design and project delivery of the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal over its 30 year development history. We undertook the design and project management of the initial development, commissioned in 1983 as the first common user coal export terminal in Queensland. This engagement continued through subsequent development, as additional inloading, stockyard and outloading capacity has been progressively added. The most recently completed Stage 7 expansion (DBCT7X) provides a terminal with three rail receival facilities and three shiploaders at berths located four kilometres offshore. It increases the terminal's capacity by 50 per cent to a nameplate rating of 85 Mtpa, making it the third largest terminal in the world. Aurecon, in a joint venture with Hatch, integrated full (EPCM) services for this seventh expansion, which was delivered in three phases and required careful integration of multiple disciplines and stakeholder requirements.
