This completes a 12 month period in which we have won state, national and international engineering awards.  We acknowledge the hard work and skill of our wonderful team of engineers, designers and detailers.

The Rock Bolting Rig is an innovative solution to securing underwater pipelines to seabeds using a remotely operated subsea vehicle.

The judges commented: "The project shows leadership in safety-design and environment welfare to secure underwater pipelines.  The potential economic opportunity in implementing this Australian technology worldwide is significant."
