Duratec was engaged by the Port of Melbourne to rehabilitate two bulk liquid berths.


Located close to Melbourne’s CBD, the Port of Melbourne is Australia’s busiest port for containerised and general cargo.

The project comprised the remediation of two docks, No.1 Maribyrnong (a bulk liquids facility) and Holden Dock (handles refined petroleum products) with no disruption to ongoing common user facility operations.

The scope of works included:

  • Concrete repairs to the wharf deck, soffit and beams and the walkway approaches.
  • Timber and steel pile protection (sacrificial anodes) and structural strengthening through encasements.
  • Demolition of concrete walkways and installation of new walkways – a design and construct aspect of the project.
  • Full encapsulation and blast and paint of steel truss frame walkways.
  • Replenishment of the rock revetment system.
  • Removal and replacement of the fire deluge systems.
  • Removal and replacement of new shipping fenders.


  • The works have extended the life of the facilities by 20 years.
  • Duratec worked closely with PoMC and the stakeholders which ensured zero interruptions over the 24 month project.
  • Works were undertaken each month during 3 day occupations, requiring careful planning and coordination.
  • Duratec assisted PoMC with design and scope changes so as to maximise the cost effectiveness of the contract budget.
