RAAF Tindal – R8000 NACC

Adbri was a key material supply partner to the New Air Combat Capability project (NACC).

About the project

Northern Cement and Hy-Tec Industries – both respected brands of Adbri – were a key material supply partner to the New Air Combat Capability (NACC) project.

The New Air Combat Capability project involved the construction of on-base maintenance hangers and working facilities, taxiway, apron, major drainage and services, pavements, accommodation, fuel storage, and car parking.
Drawing on the Group’s vertically integrated supply chain and extensive regional footprint, Northern Cement supplied cementitious material to Hy-Tec, who then supplied premixed concrete and quarry materials to Lendlease and its subcontractors for the project.

Over the life of the project, this included:
– 47,800m³ of premixed concrete supplied for structures and pavements using cement supplied from Northern Cement
– 250,000+ tonnes of quarry material

To ensure all delivery targets were met, the team worked closely with Lendlease to understand the project’s requirements and coordinate seamless deliveries in a way that would minimise any impacts from the seasonal weather conditions and the remote location. This saw Hy-Tec establish an additional mobile concrete plant in Katherine, to support its existing fixed plant, to provide security of supply for this important regional Defence project.
