Precise Air Group is excited to have been awarded the mechanical maintenance contract for the heritage listed Woolloomooloo Finger Wharf.
Originally built in 1915, the heritage listed structure was the longest timber piled wharf in the world. For the next 70 years the wharf was used as a wool processing port, troop deployment and disembarking point for migrants entering Australia.
Undergoing an award winning $300m renovation in 1999, Woolloomooloo Finger Wharf is now a stylish mixed use development featuring 300 apartments, hotel, retail, restaurants, marina, commercial space and carpark.
Like other harbourside sites serviced by Precise Air, the Finger Wharf has a seawater cooling system, eliminating the need for cooling towers used in more traditional installations.
While the use of seawater provides substantial energy savings, these systems require additional monitoring, analysis and treatment to inhibit corrosion and barnacle growth within the system and underwater. Divers complete examinations of the state of the foot valve and pumps to ensure the ongoing health of the system.
