The OI Glass facility is a new bulk storage facility for the storage of glass bottles being manufactured by the OI Glass plant, immediately adjacent to the site.
The facility incorporates 4 unloading bays under the 2500sqm canopy upgrade and 3 x recessed docks, 2 x finger docks (for side unloading vehicles) and 1 x RORO (Roll-on Roll-off system) which all have been integrated in the design to maximise operational and logistical efficiency.
The storage facility includes 37,500sqm of open storage, allowing storage of in excess of 90,000 pallets. The operations and logistics are controlled from a two storey office structure, conveniently designed to allow viewing over the storage warehouse on one side, as well as the loading canopy area on the other.
Construction was delivered from footings through to completion in less than 6 months after a lengthy environmental and civil remediation process, required due to the prior use of the site.
