3M Project, 5 Weeks on site

Designed, engineered, and installed by leading fuel solutions company, Petrolink Engineering, the 6 star resort represented absolute quality and 100% environmental commitment.

The project presented several challenging issues for the design team, including potential for extreme wet weather, a harsh saltwater environment and basic geographic remoteness. These challenges required failsafe solutions.

Meticulous programming and scheduling enabled project phases to be consecutively rolled out and whilst the early Petrolink ground crew prepared and constructed the Deep-Water facility’s hardstand area for underground tanks and pipework, the fabrication and assembly phases were able to be commenced in Petrolink’s Penrith based workshop.

Petrolink’s Project Management team, flown from Australia, co-ordinated locally sourced work crews and the construction of a concrete batching plant.

All aspects of the project were completed to relevant Australian Standards and compliant to all Fijian legal requirements.

Petrolink provided value-added training to all local staff in the areas of operation, safety and emergency procedures.
