Tilbury2 construction contract awarded to Graham

Following hard on the heels of the planning consent for Tilbury2, Forth Ports Ltd’s Port of Tilbury, has appointed Graham to construct the new ro-ro facility for P&O Ferries, now part of DP World.

 

When operational in Q1 2020, Tilbury2 will be the UK’s largest unaccompanied freight ferry port, the country’s biggest construction processing hub and will also boast a railhead that can accommodate the longest freight trains of 775m.

 

Graham has been awarded the contract for both the terrestrial and the marine Package. The terrestrial contract incorporates the ro-ro terminal, highway works, the relocation of the existing railhead, and a fixed structural steel bridge to the linkspan.

 

The marine contract includes works within the tidal estuary beyond the existing sea wall/flood defences, including a floating pontoon, link-span/articulated bridge, associated pilings and river bed preparation for the berth.

 

The value of the two contracts has not been disclosed, but is thought to be £90M based on earlier advertised prices.

 

Tilbury2 is central to Forth Ports’ £1B investment programme in the Port of Tilbury, London during 2012-20. Tilbury has doubled the size of its business in the past 10 years and is projected to double the volume of cargo across the quay, from 16 to 32 Mtpa, over the next 10-15 years.
