This Week's Highlight - The Great Barrier Reef Remediation

This week sees two approaches to market related to the remediation of Douglas Shoal, one is a Request for Tender (RFT), the other is a Request for Information (RFI). Douglas Shoal is an area located about 90km northeast of Gladstone and 45km northwest of Heron Island, part of the Great Barrier Reef. It is a large, flat-topped shoal that supports abundant fish life and protected species such as sea snakes and marine turtles. In April 2010, a coal carrier ran aground in the area and caused extensive damage with an impact area of more than 40 hectares. This is the largest ship grounding scar known in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, and possibly the largest reef-related impact in the world.

As a result, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) negotiated an out-of-court settlement with the owners and insurers of the coal carrier, and was awarded $35 million to clean up the site. The GBRMPA aims to have the site cleaned up by June 2020 via 3 streams of work. Stream 1 establishes the planning and project management task. Stream 2 undertakes the remediation work, and stream 3 undertakes environmental monitoring. Streams 1 and 2 are being addressed by this week’s approaches to market and both close on the 20 Feb 18.

An industry brief for both opportunities is being held in Brisbane on the 1 Feb 18, and a data room containing additional information is also available for access subject to completion of a Deed of Confidentiality.
