Victoria Harbour, Australia
ESC’s involvement with the project began with a series of meetings with Edgen Murray and Lend Lease Engineering(Developer) during which some alternative design options were proposed by ESC which eventually resulted in the design being changed from Hot rolled Sheets (Arcelor AZ19) to a totally Cold Rolled Sheet and Clutch design, thus saving the client in valuable time and money, whilst still achieving all the design criteria set by the designers.
Victoria Harbour, located on the Western edge of Melbourne’s CBD within the Docklands Area, Victoria Harbour is a unique peninsula landform extending west from Docklands Park to the base of the Bolte Bridge. The 30 hectare site is bounded by the Yarra River and the Victoria Harbour Dock. The site has two distinct ‘base’ conditions – wharf structure on the edges, and terra firma (solid ground) in the centre.
A superb extension to Melbourne’s CBD, Victoria Harbour has been labelled ‘the jewel in the crown’ of Melbourne’s Docklands. Vibrant promenades with inviting restaurants and cafes, and walking and cycling paths entwine with some of Melbourne’s most indulgent residential offerings.
Encompassing Melbourne’s newest collection of beautifully appointed apartments, premium penthouses, marina and wharf side homes, upon completion proposed for 2021, Victoria Harbour will undoubtedly become Melbourne’s most exclusive new waterfront address.
The project involves construction a new 240 metre long Combi-Wall on the river, which forms the supporting structure for the new deck and platform, atop which will be built the Podium and 2 Tower Buildings forming part of Zone 1 and Zone 2 of the total site.
The materials supplied by EM comprised of Spiral Submerged Arc Welded (SSAW) pipes and Cold Rolled Clutches and Sheet Piles, all with a High Build Epoxy Marine Coating, which was applied to 10metres of the Tubes and 7 metres of the Sheets.

Pipe Piles inspection.
ESC staff along with the Edgen Murray representatives conducted in-plant inspections and surveillance activities at all facilities used in the manufacture to ensure the agreed ITP and Quality Plans were strictly adhered to.
During the 2nd of these inspections the Project Manager from Lend Lease accompanied ESC & Edgen Murray to observe the tube production and painting processes.
The levels of cooperation and the focus on client objectives and outcomes by ESC and Edgen Murray on this project, as well as our ability to provide high quality products and technical support were of critical importance to Lend Lease.
