Ausdecom is pleased to work alongside bp to deliver demolition services of redundant refining units at the Kwinana Energy Hub. Established in 1955, bp’s Kwinana refinery was once Australia’s largest but safely ceased crude oil production in March 2021. The site is now planned to be repurposed as an energy hub, where fuel import terminal operations will be integrated with plans for a green hydrogen hub and biorefinery.
Ausdecom has significant experience in the demolition of large-scale industrial installations and structures, including the ability where necessary to dismantle portions or whole plants for reuse and relocation to other sites. We are able to design and implement the demolition of structures using our safe and systematic engineered collapse procedures.
We pride ourselves in making the most difficult of projects run smoothly from inception to completion, working closely with all relevant authorities to ensure projects are delivered safely and with the least impact upon all concerned parties.
At the end of 2023 Ausdecom safely demolished six terminal fuel tanks at bp Kwinana which were part of their former oil refinery. They were demolished to make way for their potential Kwinana Renewable Fuels project; which would be Australia’s largest biorefinery More than 30,000 tonnes of materials, including steel from these tanks has been recycled on the project so far.
Demolition and recycling of all arising materials are well underway to allow the systematic handover process and development works to commence.
