Based in Queensland, Australia, Neumann Contractors has more than 50 years’ experience in contract dredging, with a modern and well maintained dredging fleet. The first dredge was developed in the late 1950s for mineral sand recovery and since then the company has designed and manufactured dredges for a variety of inshore dredging projects.
Attributing their success and outstanding industry reputation to their philosophy of innovation, flexibility and performance, Neumann Contractors is committed to offering professional services, whilst at the same time maintaining strict quality, safety and environmental standards.
Neumann’s has an impressive portfolio showcasing their involvement in a number of significant dredging projects, such as the completion of more than 200 kilometres of waterways, as well as the successful dredging of many large scale land reclamation, infrastructure, mining and resource dredging, port development, beach nourishment and channel maintenance projects.
Recently Neumann Contractors were involved in the $500 million Port Botany Container Terminal Expansion Project in Sydney, New South Wales. Considered to be one of the largest infrastructure projects of its kind in Australia, the Port Botany development incorporates the expansion of the existing container port terminal to increase port capacity.
During their initial involvement in the project, they were contracted to undertake the dredging and reclamation of the concrete casting yard area, access platforms and underwater bunds used for turbidity and environmental control. Neumann used its 450mm cutter suction dredge the ‘Nu Bounty’, capable of dredging to a depth of 22 metres.
As part of the dredging works, Neumann Contractors removed in excess of 1,100,000 cubic metres of sand, which was used for land reclamation within the Port Expansion area.
Neumann Contractors’ experienced management and engineering team will work closely with clients from the preliminary stages of a project through to its completion to deliver the project results required.
