Subcon has completed fabrication of Australia’s Largest Artificial Reef – the NT Reef, which will be installed in Beagle Gulf off Darwin.
The fabrication work was performed with JV partner Shorecast NT as part of the Territory Government’s $50 million recreational infrastructure fishing commitment.
The 120 separate steel and concrete modules will sit on the sea floor in four different locations and are designed to replicate the best possible natural reef habitat.
The new artificial reefs will be located in the Greater Darwin region, two will be between North Gutter and Lee Point, one in the Dundee region and one between the Vernon Islands and Cape Hotham.
They are expected to be installed later this year.
