Alice Springs and Ayers Rock Airport runway projects showcased Adbri’s ability to deliver quality aggregates in remote locations.
Hy-Tec Industries was engaged as the key aggregate supply partner for the reseal of two airports – Alice Springs and Ayers Rock.
Hy-Tec’s Alice Springs’ North Road Quarry has a reputation in the region for providing the highest quality aggregates whilst meeting very tight deadlines. It is supported by two other Hy-Tec quarries in the Territory, ensuring the team always delivers on their promises.
For the Alice Springs Airport Runway 12/30 Remediation Design and Construction project, Hy-Tec supplied over 15,000 tonnes of product from its local quarry, including dust, 5mm, 6mm, 7mm,14mm and sealing aggregates. With a last-minute request for additional product, the team had to quickly adapt to create a modified 7mm aggregate to meet the project’s timelines.
The team’s strong quarrying knowledge, coupled with Hy-Tec’s technical capability, resulted in all products being delivered on schedule and the project completed one week early.
Ayers Rock Airport Reseal project also required the Hy-Tec team to work closely with the customer to make sure the 12,000 tonne of product, consisting of 7mm,10mm and 14 mm aggregates was available on site as required.
With limited stockpile areas at Ayers Rock Airport, and 460 kilometre distance from the quarry gate to the site, six quad trucks were required to successfully manage the transport logistics. This coupled with the adoptative nature of Hy-Tec’s quarry team to manufacture additional products with limited notice period, helped make Alice Springs Airport reseal another successful project for Adbri and the community.
