Analysis helps in the rebuilding of Brisbane's Riverwalk

Stability, structural, mooring and lifting analysis undertaken by International Maritime Consultants (IMC) has helped to ensure the safe reconstruction of river-side infrastructure in Brisbane.

In January 2011 severe floods extensively damaged the original structure of the New Farm Riverwalk in Brisbane, Australia. The walkway is a key river connection between New Farm and the Queensland capital's city centre, and had been used by over 3,000 cyclists and pedestrians daily. The floods, however, caused a section of it to break and wash downstream.

To assist in the Riverwalk rebuilding project, A.M.S. Tugs & Barges was contracted to supply its barge A.M.S. Gladstone. IMC was in turn contracted to undertake stability analysis and structural analysis for the barge when fitted with a Manitowoc M16000 crane with Max-ER counterweight. The crane was used for tasks such as lifting large sections of the riverwalk into place.

IMC also undertook a lifting and mooring analysis for the deck cargo and ballast tank spud barge, which is 64 metres long and 21 metres in beam.
