The harbour and wharf at Cape Cleveland are a foundational capabiliy for AIMS. Due to sedimentation the wharf has been inaccessible to large vessels since November 2018, and to small vessels since mid-2019. The wharf and boat ramp facilities are currently unusable. When the harbour was constructed (1976), the depth of water at the wharf was 4m (lowest astronomical tide), providing all tide access to the facility. At the present time, the wharft becomes dry at low tide and is unsafe for vessel access at high tide.
The key objective is to re-establish all tide access to AIMS Cape Cleveland wharf, restoring AIMS critical research and operational capability for the next 40 years.
Marine Infrastructure contractors are now invited to submit expressions of interest to undertake the works identified.
