Port Development

For more than 45 years, BigLift Shipping vessels have been seen in ports all over the world and often we have also helped build the ports in the first place! We are specialists in transport of marine infrastructures such as jetties, caissons, dolphins, complete wharf deck modules and ship loaders/unloaders, which are regularly shipped from their manufacturing sites to new ports under development or where harbour extension works are taking place. As well as in port infrastructure, our specialist vessels are regularly spotted packed full of container cranes and straddle carriers of all sizes.

We have performed a diverse range of projects for Port Hedland in Australia for several different clients and for Rio Tinto we have handled multiple shipments for its Cape Lambert and Dampier iron ore facilities. In addition, BigLift was a major contractor for the transport and installation of wharf decks and jackets for the Amrun Bauxite mine project in Weipa, Queensland.
