InterMoor, a brand in Acteon’s Engineering, Moorings and Foundations division, has designed six diving moorings for a diving site within the Great Sandy Marine Park.
The ex-HMAS Tobruk was then scuttled in Hervey Bay creating a world class diving site. The Tobruk was set on the seabed with her topmost point only a few metres below the surface. This created ample interesting sections for the beginner, intermediate and advanced divers to feel comfortable and challenged.
InterMoor’s demonstrated experience and engineering capacity in the design of inshore moorings has been fundamental in allowing the installation contractor to win this job.
The team provided a comprehensive design, report, equipment list and general arrangement drawings that are all RPEQ (Registered Professional Engineers of Queensland) approved. InterMoor designed the load test procedures and witnessed the test on site. The design incorporated the requirements of the Department of Environment and Science of the Queensland Government.
InterMoor’s Australia Country Manager, Gavin Crossan, remarked: “InterMoor in Australia offers a huge range of services around mooring needs. This type of work may be considered small by some, but it requires an experienced design and operations team to execute the work correctly. We are happy to have contributed to the safe enjoyment of such an iconic site for many divers in the years to come”.
