Partnership pays off for PD Ports

[ June 8, 2012   //   ]

PD Ports’ container terminal at Teesport has won the ‘Over £4m Project’ category at the annual Robert Stephenson Awards, which are presented by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) North East.

The contractor was Hall Construction Services, working alongside WSP Group and Royal Haskoning for PD Ports.

The judges congratulated the project team on an excellent example of partnering and teamwork in delivering this important project with minimal disruption and maximum benefit to PD Ports.

The works at Teesport Container Terminal 2, which began in January 2011, involved the complete reconstruction of over five hectares of terminal area with new heavy duty paving designed to withstand the increased loads from the container stacks, as well as the installation of four new RTGs and the implementation of a new terminal operating system.

This was the first phase of expanding Teesport’s container terminal capacity from 235,00teu to 450,000teu.

Group chief executive officer of PD Ports, David Robinson, said: “The work was successfully completed on schedule, within budget and most importantly the work was carried out whilst we were still operating the terminal without any disruption to our customers.”
