Navy Pier Fuel Pipeline Replacement Project

Raytheon Australia are the main contractor for the Commonwealth at Naval Communication Station Harold E Holt (NCSHEH), Exmouth WA.

Orion were contracted to design and construct a 300NB Diesel Fuel Pipeline. The pipeline is used to receive fuel delivered by sea for power generation at the station and runs alongside the Navy Pier.

The Navy Warf is located right in the centre of the Ningaloo Marine Park, famous for being the home of Australia's largest and most accessible fringing reef. As such, all subsequant fuelling activities were required to be conducted with the utmost care and due diligence to mitigate any risk of spillage.  

The project was compromised of 2 sections. 350m alongside the offshore Jetty, over a marine reserve, and an onshore section above ground of approx. 500m to the onshore tank farm.

The offshore section required extensive modifications to the pier structure to accomodate the new fuel line and a new fire main which was installed adjacent to the fuel line.
