PROJECTS

Below are some of the projects our team worked on. Being a small company allows us to react fast and resolve matters time after time. We help our clients and its employees succeed, save significant sums of money and enhance reputations to the satisfaction of all stakeholders involved - that's what excites us.
AAD Icebreaker - Linnhoff Schiffahrt Meyerwerft OA
 

We tendered for the new AAD Icebreaker. Our consortium consisted of (1) Linnhoff as experience vessel manager running government vessels incl German Icebreakers and Research Vessels, (2) the superb Meyerwerft as the builder of excellent top quality vessels combined with (3) the proven quality system of the top German brand car manufacturer and (4) with strong operational know how of the Aurora Australis ops. It was a huge achievement to draw such high quality consortium together. For reasons beyond us we just could not win this one, in due course a parliamental inquiry might show why. Anyway, the winning design looked very familiar - that in itself is the greatest acknowledgement.

Recruitment - Technical / Vessel / Project Management Positions

 

This was the first high spec DP vessel to work in the new contract configuration for the Australian Government. Our team managed to locate a number of top quality individuals capable of managing the newbuild of such advanced vessel. We get a kick out of happy stakeholders. Talent spotting the right guys for the right project is a thrill and we have been able to do that for a number of great companies in great projects - Gorgon, Wheatstone, Ichtys, Melbourne Channel Deepening amongst a few. Winners all over.

WICET Queensland - Muhibbah
 

Muhibbah is a listed major engineering conglomorate based in Malaysia. The task for our team members was to bring a 50 year old Jack Up Barge into Australia to build the new Wicett coal terminal jetty. Our team had the privilege to work alongside some of Muhibbah's most talented managers to come up with an efficient working jack up barge and crew customised to Australian standards and requirements. The result: a good working ju barge and dedicated crew and a successful organization which has now proven it understands and can work very well in Australia.

Haypoint Extension Qld - DOF Management Australia Pty Ltd
 

 

This was the first DOF vessel to work in Australia. The project was brough forward by 6 months which presented some huge challenges. Our team managed to get all EBA's over the line within 3 weeks, get the vessel ready, approved for Australia and within the required time. Only after the vessel started working did we realise that we pulled off the impossible. The key to success? A seamless cooperation between unions, DOF, stakeholders and ourselves. We realized why DOF had chosen to go with a small consulting firm over the usual big ones. Choosing us allowed them an  efficient and informal approach. We took the challenge head on and are delighted with the results!

Sydney Desal Plant - 1500mm Dual Firing Line - McConnell Dowell

 

Working with McConnell Dowell was a great experience. Their old subcontractor was not as focused as they should have been and the project came to a halt. We were called in and resolved the Industrial Relation issues within 1a night and the next day we were assigned to look after the critical crew for the rest of the project. The project finished without a single industrial relation issue and to the satisfaction of the client. This was the first dual layed pipeline in the world and a rather big one; two 1500mm diameter pipelines.
