Innovation in action

Port Warratah Coal – Kooragang 4 Joint Replacement

  • Aqua Prep, was engaged by Freyssinet to carry out Hydro Demolition to two construction joints that had failed after 30 years of service.
  • In what was a technical and very challenging project Aqua Prep imported a customised robot attachment to its Aqua Cutter Robot to demolish just under 40 Cubic metres in under three weeks.
  • The two joints were completely exposed measuring 2.1m high x 4m wide x 2.2m deep. With the majority of the concrete removed horizontally through the joint.

Victoria Dock: Under-Water Hydro Demolition

  • Aqua Prep was called in to cut and demolish an old concrete wharf which had fallen into 12m of water, the cuts were 7m long and 375mm thick.
  • This was after the client persisted with hydraulic chain saw methods which proved to be unsuccessful.
  • Aqua Prep pooled its resources and industry partners to adapt our process and equipment to complete the job on time, saving our client time and tens of thousands of dollars.
