Current Contracts & Tenders

Ports North is responsible for the development and management of port facilities vital to the development of Cairns and regional centres in Far North Queensland.  

The Port of Mourilyan is a trading port under Ports North ownership and management. The Mourilyan Main Wharf is used primarily for the export of sugar, molasses and magnetite.

The wharf consists of a reinforced concrete deck structure supported on approximately 390 square reinforced concrete piles. Approximately 30 of these piles require repairs to cracks and drummy concrete. 

Ports North invites tenders from suitably qualified and available Contractors, with appropriate experience in high quality concrete rehabilitation in the marine environment for the delivery of this project.

Ports North (PN) is responsible for the development and management of port facilities vital to the development of Cairns and regional centres in Far North Queensland. 

PN owns and maintains the Cairns Marlin Marina which consists of floating pontoon systems protected by an outer wave screen structure. Various floating pontoon systems have been constructed in the Marina over a period of time from 1980 to 2011. It follows that the condition of the pontoon asset varies throughout the marina with maintenance required to several key components.

The majority of the pontoon systems consist of polystyrene filled, concrete encased flotation units supported by timber whalers and galvanised through bolts with steel knee braces at walkway/finger connections. Steel pile guides are used to secure the pontoon systems to steel and concrete piles.

In general, the works are to be undertaken on Marlin Marina D, E and F finger facilities. The scope of works includes the replacement of pile guides, knee brackets, mooring cleats, timber whalers, through bolts and various other components of the pontoon systems.

The Contract is based on Australian Standard 4920-2003 General Conditions of Contract for the Provision of Asset Maintenance and Services with Special Conditions of Contract included. The works will be delivered over a period of three financial years.

PN requests Tender Submissions from suitably qualified and available Contractors with appropriate experience in the maintenance of floating pontoon systems for the provision of these works. Works are within an operational marina and include the provision of appropriate access and environmental controls in the tidal zone. Staging and programming of the works will be critical to the safe and successful delivery of the works whilst minimising disruption to berth users.
