John Beever (an ACCIONA Company) was engaged as Principal Contractor to provide a combination of mechanical and civil works which included
The project team raised to the project challenges, mostly generated by tight deadlines and wet weather. The final tie into the main gas pipeline was conducted over a three-day isolation during which time, gas supply to Melbourne was diverted via a smaller pipeline.
All major fabrication of the pipework was completed offsite at the John Beever fabrication and jobbing workshop in Sunshine. This ensured that the cutting of pipeline was exact to allow for the expansion and retraction commonly caused by fluctuating weather conditions. The initiative, driven by the John Beever project team, accelerated works by four weeks.
The Winchelsea Gas Compressor Station is set to be commissioned and operating on time and on budget, achieving all project objectives. This includes client satisfaction, with APA recognising JBA’s safety record with a Zero Hero Award.
