Ertech has won a contract for upgrade work on the Exmouth Boat Harbour.

Wangara-based contractor Ertech has won an $8.3 million contract for work on the state government’s Exmouth Boat Harbour upgrade project.

Ertech’s scope of work under the contract is the biggest component of the $18.3 million project, and includes an 88-metre extension to the wharf, hardstand extension, four new trawler pens, and raising of the southern breakwater.

“About 7,600 cubic metres of locally sourced rock will be used to increase the height of the breakwater to protect the trawler pens, while about 140 tonnes of steel will be used to extend the wharf to provide a new heavy lift zone and hardstand, significantly increasing the capacity of the facility,” Transport Minister Dean Nalder said.

"Work will commence on the marine structures and civil works in mid-July, ensuring the upgrade project remains on schedule for completion by mid-2017."

Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said the upgrade reinforced the facility as an important maritime hub in the state's north.

"The Exmouth Boat Harbour will better accommodate and service the rapidly growing supply vessel traffic, supporting the resources industry, as well as the growing tourist and recreational vessel traffic for the benefit of both current and future generations,” he said.

The project has been supported by the state government’s Royalties for Regions program.

Earlier this year, Ertech won a $20 million contract for restoration work at West Perth office tower Dumas House for the state government.
