Modern Control Tower for Port Hedland
Pindan has recently delivered the Pilbara Port Authority with a new Integrated Marine Operations Centre (IMOC).
Completed in December 2018, this state-of-the-art facility is located adjacent to the existing administration building and will replace the existing and outdated Shipping Control Tower.
is expected to be fully operational in 2019 and oversee more than 6,000 safe and efficient vessel movements in the harbour.
Steve Tyter, Manager Special Projects for Pilbara Port Authority, said the IMOC represents a new era for PPA.
“It transforms the way we do business to ensure we continue to meet targets and the global demand for resources,” he said.
Managing Director for Pindan Contracting, Tony Gerber, said the size and location of the site presented the site team with a challenge.
The new facility will control the marine operations of the port, including vessel movements in the inner harbour through the channel and off shore anchorage; and house best practice Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) Systems and state-of-the-art equipment for the harbour master function, dredging management, port security, marine pilot briefing facilities and improved incident control capability.
