WSP in Action
The Woolgoolga to Ballina project is Australia’s largest regional infrastructure project and will duplicate about 155km of the Pacific Highway to create a four-lane, divided road. The project involves upgrading the remaining single carriageway sections of the Pacific Highway to complete the efficient and safe road transport link between Australia’s three east coast capital cities.
We are also providing engineering and project management support to Eskom - South Africa’s power utility company - for the development and execution phases of the Medupi Power Station Project, a 4,800-MW plant that will be the largest dry-cooled power station in the world. The new plant will provide much-needed electricity to a growing population. A massive project with 38 large contracts and a peak workforce of over 16,000 people, the Medupi Power Station consists of 6 coal-fired supercritical boilers that will add a reliable source of power to the nation’s grid.
WSP has developed and implemented solutions to drive efficiencies throughout the entire construction. As part of our team-based project management methodology, we developed systems such as the Risk Management Toolkit and data management system – WISPA (Web Integrated System of Processes and Applications), enabling the Medupi team to take a collaborative approach to on-site activity coordination, reduce risk, and maintain high standards of health and safety.
