The Australian Marine Complex is the premier location to build major infrastructure to support offshore oil and gas projects. The Common User Facility (CUF) located within the Fabrication Precinct provides local companies with an internationally competitive fabrication complex, which is a major advantage when tendering for contracts.
This provides an 80 metre x 60 metre x 42 metre state-of-the-art fabrication hall with 200 tonne portal crane and two auxiliary cranes for an all-weather work environment. The CUF’s 40 hectare laydown area provides ample space for the modular assembly and testing of major projects including cranes.
Four wharves, one equipped with a 300 tonne crane, offer loadout capability and cost-effective sea transportation direct to site to remote locations such as the North West Shelf.
The 99 metre x 63 metre floating dock also allows for the underwater testing of subsea structures while the AMC’s self propelled modular transporters (SPMTs) can be utilised to move structures between the CUF and individual business premises within the AMC and around the CUF for loadout.
The Subsea Cluster, a 20 hectare site dedicated to subsea companies also caters for this important industry and is already home to Chevron Australia, FMC Technologies and Matrix Composites and Engineering.
