Point Quobba AtoN Remediation
The Point Quobba aid to navigation (AtoN) is located approximately 30nm north-west of Carnarvon, WA. The structure consists of a reinforced concrete cylindrical tower with cast iron lantern room and a stainless steel balcony. The upper portion of the concrete tower was showing signs of deterioration and the lantern room had significant corrosion between the panel joints which was causing the cast iron panels to crack.
Duratec was engaged by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority to refurbish the concrete tower and lantern room. Watch this time-lapse footage of the removal of the lantern room.
