CCTV For Darwin Ship Lift
CCTV For Darwin Ship Lift – Clough-BMD has gone to tender seeking a video surveillance solution for the new Darwin Ship Lift.
The Darwin Ship Lift facility will meet the needs of the general maritime sector and the current and long-term needs of the Department of Defence and the Australian Border Force, while supporting local jobs and economic growth in the Territory.
Once operational the facility will be a catalyst for the development of a marine maintenance and servicing industry, and the creation of new jobs. The common user ship lift facility will include:
* A ship lift 26m wide, 103m long and 6m deep
* Lifting capability of 5000 tonnes
* Wet berths (wharves)
* Additional hard stand area for ship repair and maintenance works.
The Darwin Ship Lift Facility will be a common user facility, enabling vessel owners to choose and manage their own service and maintenance providers. This will also enable multiple providers to operate concurrently at the facility. The ship lift will have the capacity to lift vessels such as the new fleet of offshore patrol vessels procured by the Australian Defence Force.
Construction is anticipated to take 2 years, becoming operational in 2024. Territory Government has appointed Clough–BMD joint venture as the preferred contractor to design and construct the Darwin ship lift.
This tender for video surveillance closes on October 10 – you can find out more here.
