Port of Burnie

The Port of Burnie’s oldest commercial wharf, Berth Four, is receiving strengthening and fender replacement works, which is required to allow the upgrade of two main stern fenders.

Work commenced at the Strait Link-designated berth in February 2023 and is expected to be completed by the end of May.

Tasmanian firm, Batchelor Construction Group, is undertaking the works.

The first phase strengthening work was undertaken during business hours, while the current phase to install the new Super Cone Fender systems needs to be completed at night to allow daily visits by Strait Link vessels.

The Batchelor team has to work over the side of the berth on suspended scaffolding, hence the dependence on tide and weather to complete the work.
