Liverpool2 phase 2

McLaughlin & Harvey has been contracted by Peel Ports to deliver the next phase of development at the Liverpool2 deep-water container terminal. The multi-million project will significantly increase the footprint of the site and see the addition of 10 more cantilever rail mounted gantry cranes (CRMGs) and three more ship-to-shore cranes.

 

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.

 

Liverpool2 phase 1 was opened in November 2016 at a cost of £400M.

 

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 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.”
