VNIE Project update
Qube Energy was contracted by Bao Australia for the project management of Tranche 1 and 2 of the Victorian Northern Interconnection Expansion Pipeline Project, which included stevedoring at its South Wharf facility in the Port of Melbourne, stockpile management and transporting the pipe to the lay down areas at Wallan and Seymour.
The first shipment for Tranche 1 arrived on 1 March 2014 and the second arrived ten days later.
Qube Energy operates the facility at South Wharf and managed the wharf lay down, which meant that it could discharge at any time with no interruption to urban traffic.
Qube was also stevedoring the vessel, which allowed for a well planned and open communication operation.
The load out of pipe was co-ordinated around curfew hours to enable trucks to deliver multiple loads in one day.
To date, Qube Energy has delivered 28 km of pipe to the lay down site at Wallan and 38 km to the lay-down site Seymour.
