Sarens supports Amrun project

Sarens has transported six prefabricated modules, weighing 1,300 tonnes each, for the Amrun port and mine project in Australia, on behalf of Civmec.

The USD1.9 billion Amrun project in Weipa, North Queensland will see the construction of a mine and port that promises to expand production at a major bauxite deposit.

A ro-ro vessel was used to transport the modules from the port of Henderson, Perth, to port facilities near the final project site. As the port was unable to accommodate vessels of this size, Sarens transhipped the modules onto a barge for delivery to the port.

60 axle-lines of SPMTs and a PJ250 jacking system were used to offload the modules, before transporting them to the project site, approximately 35 km away.
