Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) has awarded BAM Clough a design and construction contract for a fifth iron ore loading berth in Port Hedland, Western Australia.
The work will involve the construction of a 306 m long wharf extension at the Anderson Point Facility (AP5).

Project engineering has begun with procurement and planning work scheduled to start this month.
Construction is to commence in May 2014, with the project estimated completion date of May 2015.

The collective was formed in 1964 and will celebrate its 50th year in 2014.
BAM Clough has almost finished successfully developing 15 major jetty and near shore marine projects, including ExxonMobil’s PNG Jetty.
