Applecross-based Kerman Contracting has secured a $30 million contract to build a ship unloading facility at the Port of Newcastle in NSW.

Under the contract, Kerman will demolish two existing unloaders and associated conveyer structures, which will be replaced by a new facility, along with wharf upgrades and electrical systems.

The company is targeting completion of the works in December.

Kerman said the new facility would be the first of its type in Australia and will provide a multi-purpose bulk commodity unloading services.

“We have worked closely with Tenova/Takraf to develop the ship unloader that satisfies all of Port of Newcastle’s requirements,” managing director Chris Kerman said.

“The ship unloader will be jib grab slewing-style machine.”
