BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) has signed an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) contract for the company’s Shiploader 2 and Berth 2 Replacement (SABR) project at the Hay Point Coal Terminal near Mackay, Queensland.

McConnell Dowell was selected for the role, and will completely replace one of the three berths and shiploaders at the Hay Point Coal Terminal, which have reached the end of their life.

The SABR project aims to replace both facilities and improve operability through a berth extension and storm immunity by raising the berth.
