QuayQuip recently supplied the fendering for Utah Point, the latest development at Port Hedland in Western Australia. Twenty three specialist fender systems, designed for rapid installation, were mounted to sub-frames that were tailored to fit the overhanging dock structure. In total over 500 tonnes of steel were installed.
Utah Point is the latest development by the Port Hedland Port Authority. The new facility, on Finucane Island, will expand Port Hedland’s capacity for iron, chromite and manganese ores and allow for future growth in other bulk commodities.
