Alexandra Dock site construction progressing well
ABP has announced that construction work on the Green Port Hull Alexander Dock site is progressing well and on schedule for early completion in 2017.
The 54-acre site is being prepared for Siemens’ offshore wind turbine manufacturing facility and is hull’s biggest engineering project since the port was built.
Simon Bird, ABP director, said: “It’s fantastic to see the site beginning to take shape and it’s testament to the hard work all of the organisations and individuals involved in the enabling works that the project is on schedule and Siemens’ facility will be operational by the end of 2016.”
The work, which being undertaken by ABP and its main contractor Graham Lagan Construction Group Joint Venture (JV), is worth £150m.
To date, the dock infill has been completed, with one million cubic metres of sand pumped into the dock to fill one third of the water area.
Excess sand was stored during this process to be used for the 7.5 hectare reclaim, which will become the new quayside and component storage areas.
Marine piling for the new quay wall is almost complete and piling for the anchor wall and roll on-roll off ramp is continuing.
JV has now taken control of the east side of the site to begin preparatory works for the 25,000m2 service building.
