AN INTEGRATED Approach
The project scope involved the removal of an existing diesel generating station, excavation and site remediation of hydrocarbon contaminated soils and placement of a refurbished generating station. Project tasks comprised of site preparation, remedial excavation, offsite soils disposal, backfill and compaction and re-establishment of several structures and utilities.
The project initially comprised of clearing, grubbing and base preparation, as well as the installation of a temporary generator for the community during the duration of the work.
Fuel lines were removed and replaced and approximately 3,500 tonnes of impacted soil were removed.
A new concrete foundation was constructed and, subsequently, the placement of a newly refurbished diesel generating station was completed along with associated civil works.
A construction environment management plan and an erosion and sediment control plan were prepared by the QM team given the sensitive adjacent marine environment.
The demolition phase include a complete demolition of an old former powerhouse and disposal of non-salvageable materials and general refuse from the solid waste collection overflow.
