Bamaga Airport – Aviation Refuelling Facility

The NPARC region incorporates the communities of Injinoo, Umagico, Bamaga, New Mapoon and Seisia. It is the gateway to the Torres Strait Islands and the destination for visitors seeking to visit the very northern tip of the Australian continent. Strategically the Airport provides year round access to the community so providing aviation fuels reliably, is absolutely vital to the region.

Haz-Elec was contracted to provide the electrical power and control systems, working with NQ Petro as the principal responsible for installing the tanks, plant and piping. The pumping facility is multi-purpose, handling both package receipt of aviation fuels into the depot as well as delivery through dispenser and underwing hose reel. Dispensing is fully automated by account validation and transaction management systems. Underwing refuelling is through a bulk metering system with Operator Deadman control.

The scope of works included the full design and fabrication of a new Motor Control Centre followed by onsite installation and commissioning of all associated electrical equipment, cabling and support systems. Haz-Elec also provided a Hazardous Area Classification and full Hazardous Area Verification Dossier compliant to AS/NZS60049.14-4.2.

Haz-Elec services provided in conjunction with this project include: engineering design, project management, electrical installation, detailed EEHA inspections and statutory Hazardous Area audit of the electrical installation.

This project was completed remotely on time. Haz-Elec’s extensive Work Health Safety Security and Environment (HSSE) system ensures the highest standards of safety and integrity reasonable across all service divisions to ensure the project was completed incident free and compliant with NPARC’s HSE policies and procedures.
