Qld TElSTRa cORPORaTiOn Northern Region Disaster Recovery 2011 is a major project established to manage and coordinate Telstra’s response to the devastating weather events experienced during “Queensland’s Big Wet”. The ‘5R’ disaster recovery framework was used, covering the phases of Ready, Respond, Restore, Repair and Reconstruct. The complexity of this project involved not only the restoration of services, but also significant activity to reconstruct the network to pre-disaster standards. The project involved the restoration of power to telephone exchanges and roadside cabinets as well as the installation of a number of interim solutions including mobile services, satellite services and temporary fibre and copper cables. Tas hYdRO TaSMania The Red Hills Creek diversion captures runoff of creeks below Red Hills and diverts them into the Tribute headrace access tunnel for use by Tribute Power Station. The diversion is located between Tullah and Queenstown on Tasmania’s West Coast. The project was delivered as part of a program of works initiated by Hydro Tasmania to recapture reduced inflows. Completed in May 2010 at a cost of around $5m, the diversion is now delivering over 10GWhrs of additional energy at significant financial benefit to Hydro Tasmania. Works included construction of small dams, pipelines, channels and a tunnel. Key challenges included the environmental sensitivity of the site, weather, schedule milestones, safety and budget. sa PaRSOnS BRinckERhOff & iluka The $420M Jacinth-Ambrosia (J-A) mineral sands mine in remote South Australia is potentially the world’s richest zircon deposit. To deliver a project of this scale a Project Alliance Agreement was established between Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) and Iluka, resulting in the creation of an integrated owner’s team. This team was responsible for the entire mine development, from the definitive feasibility study, approvals, EPCM delivery and commissioning. The project commenced with no on- site services and the team successfully developed the ‘fit for purpose’ infrastructure to suit the project's requirements, remote location and environmental constraints. aCT POinT PROjEcT ManagEMEnT The Next Generation Check-in Program was established to revolutionise the domestic check-in experience. The core aim of the program was to eliminate customer queues through the delivery of a faster, smarter check-in experience. This involved the int roduction of new technologies and imp rovements to existing systems along the check-in p rocess. A highly complex program involved the development of new concepts, integration of numerous new technologies with existing systems, major construction at each airport, training of over 2000 staff, management of over 40 suppliers and the delivery of the new chip-enabled Qantas Frequent Flyer cards and Q Bag Tags to over 600,000 customers. In addition, the program was driven to a fixed implementation timeframe due to time to market pressures.
