Focus on Safety


Curtis Island (Qld) LNG Concrete Mobile Plants
Safely Demobilised


Congratulations to the team from Boral Concrete in Queensland for the safe disassembly of mobile concrete plants from the Curtis Island LNG projects.

The demobilisation recorded 19,100 hours accident and injury free

Boral supplied concrete on all three LNG projects on Curtis Island – Australia Pacific LNG, Queensland Curtis LNG and GLNG, with supply running since 2011. The last piece of concrete mobile plant equipment was demobilised in November 2015.

The scope of the disassembly provided some significant safety and environmental challenges that were identified and worked through as part of a formal risk management process. Planning began more than six months before the actual demobilisation commenced.

The project provided a good opportunity for one of our Graduate Engineers, Josiah Strong, to gain valuable experience on how to demobilise major concrete production facilities built on an island with no access other than from barges.
