Scope of Work & Disciplines

BP Australia Pty Ltd (“Air BP”) owns, operates and maintains the aviation fuel infrastructure at Barimunya Airport and Coondewanna Airport, with BHP contracted as the Air BP Airfields Representative. To remain compliant with the revised aviation fuel management standards, Air BP was required to upgrade existing fuel infrastructure at these airport locations.

Working in conjunction with Air BP, Pindari was engaged by BHP to complete civil and electrical works as part of the fuel infrastructure upgrades. These works were successfully completed airside, with thorough programming of construction activities around busy flight schedules.
