Including wharf facilities, ship repair, vessel construction, slipway and hardstand vessel storage, the MIPEC facility is a key asset strategically located on the east coast of Australia.
To achieve competitive outcomes and the most economically viable vessel, partnerships are utilised and appropriate organisations are involved early in the project. This ensures valuable input is considered when making decisions on the best design option.
