Substantial growth from coast-to-coast
With Brisbane and Perth locked in a neck-and-neck race to join
Sydney and Melbourne in the top three of Australia's
metropolitan centres, each city's coastal regions are hives of
activity as infrastructure is developed and the stage is set for
the future growth of populations, industries, trade volumes and
ship sizes and frequencies.
Queensland's Port of Brisbane, in particular, has staged a
significant comeback following the devastating floods of 2010-11,
with pilotage provider Brisbane Marine Pilots busier than ever with
larger and more frequent cargo vessels and bulkers. Queensland-
based maritime construction companies and service providers are
also keeping active, with Marine Diesel Traders and Pacific Marine
Group maintaining a consistent fleet of quality construction
vessels for charter or sale, as well as offering acres of hardstand, lay
down and dive support capabilities from state-of-the-art facilities.
Lastly, the region is bolstered by the presence of marine
consultancy firm Pro Dredging, with Johan Pronk and his team
providing expert advice on almost all of the state's most high
profile dredging and development projects, from Gladstone to
Over on the western edge of Down Under, coastal development
remains in support of the offshore and oil and gas sectors --
particularly with the imminent arrival of the LNG industry and the
gargantuan floating platforms that will accompany it. Exmouth's
Gun Marine Services ensures the northwestern-most port remains a
vital hub to the state's offshore activities, whilst Perth's A.M.S.
Tugs & Barges continues to offer operational excellence in marine-
related construction, offshore support, mining support and coastal
dredging works for some of the nation's largest multinationals as it
heads towards its 10-year anniversary.
