Cabbage Tree Point Dredging Kicks Off
Cabbage Tree Point Dredging and Beach Nourishment 2016
http://www.neumanncontractors.com.au/…/cabbage-tree-point-d…
Dredging has commenced in the Main Channel North at Cabbage Tree Point. Approximately 15,700m3 of material will be dredged from the channel to a designed depth of -2.7m LAT. The sand will be placed on the foreshore at Cabbage Tree Point, adjacent to the channel.
The Cabbage Tree Point dredge site is located on the Main Channel North, north of Jacobs Well, and south of the Tabby Tabby Channel confluence, adjacent to the Cabbage Tree Point boat ramp. Immediately adjacent to the dredge area, land is developed for residential uses, and many of the lots with water frontage have private jetties extending into deeper waters to allow low tide use.
The dredge area begins approximately 15 m north of the Cabbage Tree public boat ramp, extending southwards for approximately 500m.
The works are required to maintain safe navigable depth within the Main Channel North, which has been impacted by significant sand deposition and shoaling. This channel forms the primary movement channel for vessels travelling between the northern and southern areas of Moreton Bay, and it is therefore important to maintain navigable depths under all tidal conditions. Due to build-up of sand, water depths within the defined navigation channel at low tide are reduced to under one metre in some areas. Beach nourishment for recreational amenity is the selected dredge material management option to improve the amenity of the foreshore and provide additional protection to land which has been subject to steady erosion.
The Cutter Suction Dredge,Nu Discovery will be used for this project. The Nu Discovery is a 200mm cutter suction dredge from the Nu Explorer series of dredges. The Nu Explorer series of dredges have been designed and constructed by Neumann Contractors to specifically suit the typical dredging conditions encountered in projects like the Cabbage Tree Point Dredging Project. There are three dredges in the Nu Explorer series that currently complement our fleet (total of 9 Cutter Suction Dredges):
Nu Explorer (original dredge in the Nu Explorer Series) has been working in the OTML Mine in PNG for the last two years,
Nu Discovery has recently completed works in the Iluka Boat Harbour and Entrance Channel Dredging project,
Nu Investigator, is the latest in the fleet and has just completed initial trials and testing at Neumann Contractors, Corridor Sands plant at Woongoolba.
Dredge 12,Nu Discovery is a 227kW (305hp) 200mm three wire cutter suction dredge. The dredge is capable of dredging up to 120m3 per hour (in optimal conditions), dredge to a maximum depth of 6.5 metres, and pump the material up to 1,200m in distance.

TALLEBUDGERA CREEK DREDGING WORKS
Annual Dredging and Beach Nourishment Works have been Completed for 2016
http://www.neumanncontractors.com.au/news/2016-tallebudgera-dredging-all-wrapped-up
Neumann Contractors have completed the dredging works in Tallebudgera Creek for 2016. This year over 30,000 m3 of clean sand was dredged from the Tallebudgera Creek to replenish the sand on Burleigh Beach. The sand is pumped overland and released in the southern end of Burleigh Beach, near the Burleigh Beach Pavilion and spread up to 350m northwards.
Neumann Contractors have undertaken the dredging works in Tallebudgera Creek for many years now, and the works are an integral part of the Gold Coast City Council's program to maintain and replenish the sand on Gold Coast beaches.
The Nu Enterprise, a 250mm Cutter Suction Dredge, a land based booster pump and up to 1.8km of pipeline were used to complete the works.
Scope of Work
> Mobilisation to site at Tallebudgera Creek the The Nu Enterprise, a 250mm cutter suction dredge, 1 booster pump, 1.8 km`s 250mm poly pipeline. The pipeline is mobilised around the Gold Coast highway on Burleigh Hill.
> Dredging of over 30,000m3 of sand from Tallebudgera Creek.
> Pumping the sand through 1.8km of pipeline to Burleigh Beach.
> Beach nourishment works along approximately 250m stretch of Burleigh Beach.
Challenges
> Strict environmental limitations on noise and turbidity.
> Maintaining suitable access for the public at all times and working on very busy beaches which must have public access open at all time.
> Mobilising and demobilising the dredge pipeline on the main road 4 lane highway at Burleigh Hil.
The Nu Enterprise will now be towed to Currumbin Creek and commence dredging after the September School Holidays.

Tallebudgera Dredging Ready to Start

The annual dredging program for Tallebudgera Creek is about to commence. The cutter suction dredge, the Nu Enterprise has been seatowed from the Broadwater and will start dredging soon.

This year an estimated 20,000m3 of clean sand will be dredged from Tallebudgera Creek and pumped up to 1.8 kms onto the beach at Palm Beach for much welcome beach nourishment.

Neumann Contractors have undertaken the dredging works in Tallebudgera Creek for many years now, and the works are an integral part of the Gold Coast City Council's program to maintain and replenish the sand on Gold Coast beaches. Each year around 20-40,000 m3 of clean sand and dredged from the Tallebudgera Creek to replenish the sand on Burleigh Beach. The sand is pumped overland and released in the southern end of Burleigh Beach, near the Burleigh Beach Pavilion and spread up to 350m northwards. The Nu Enterprise, a 250mm Cutter Suction Dredge, a land based booster pump and up to 1.8km of pipeline were used to complete the works.

Each year sand naturally travels northward along our coastline. Sand travelling across the entrance to Tallebudgera Creek can become trapped and cause infilling of the mouth of the creek. The trapped sand also contributes to the erosion on Burleigh Beach, which is just north of Tallebudgera Creek.

The Gold Coast City Council are committed to keeping Tallebudgera Creek in the best possible condition and in doing so can also help one of the Gold Coast greatest assets, Burleigh Beach. Without the annual beach nourishment program the extreme erosion problem could render the beach a hazard.

The dredging at Tallebudgera Creek and beach nourishment on Palm Beach will be finished prior to the September School Holidays.
