A contract has been awarded for delivery of the next phase of development at Peel Ports’ Liverpool2 deepwater container terminal at the Port of Liverpool.

McLaughlin & Harvey has secured the contract for the GB£400m terminal, which opened in November 2016 and can accommodate the world’s largest container vessels. The development project will significantly increase the footprint of the site and see the addition of ten cantilever rail mounted gantry cranes (CRMGs) and three ship-to-shore cranes (STS).

Mark Whitworth, CEO of Peel Ports, said: “Since originally announcing our expansion plans we have gone on to secure some of the world’s major shipping lines as customers at the Port of Liverpool.

“That, and our growing customer base, is a vote of confidence in the North of England as a competitive route to international markets and Liverpool as a major port for global trade.

“We look forward to working with the team at McLaughlin & Harvey to deliver the next phase that will provide even more capacity to help meet growing demand.”

The STS cranes are scheduled to arrive in November 2019 with the overall project expected to be completed during 2021. Detailed design and preparatory civil works have already commenced.

There will also be additional reefer points installed to allow the terminal to handle even greater quantities of refrigerated containers at the Port of Liverpool.
