PD completes Teesport bulk project

[ June 9, 2015   //   ]

PD Ports has completed a £22m project, which included the reconstruction of 305m of quay to enhance handling facilities at Teesport. It will enable Teesport to accommodate fully laden panamax bulk vessels carrying 70,000 tonnes of cargo with loading ability at any level of tide.
The 12-month project, which is part of PD Ports’ wider growth plans, was undertaken by McLaughlin & Harvey and supported by consultants Royal Haskoning DHV and Turner & Townsend. Approximately 100 people were employed during the project.
The next phase of the reconstruction and upgrade project is due to commence in July and over a seven-month period an additional 245m of quay will be upgraded, providing further capacity at the port.
