Peel Ports has appointed Briggs Equipment UK to undertake the engineering maintenance of its operational plant and equipment at the Port of Liverpool.

Liverpool aims to become most reliable and responsive UK port

Briggs will be responsible for a multi-million pound asset base with the Port’s underlying objective being to deliver the most reliable and responsive service to its customers of any UK port.

The Port of Liverpool and Briggs will aim to maximise equipment uptime and predictive/preventative maintenance programmes. This includes a set target to provide 98%+ equipment availability when required by operations, coupled with statutory and PPM (Planned Preventative Maintenance) programmes ensuring a proactive approach delivering high levels of equipment availability.

Examples of the equipment which will be handled within the contract are ship-to-shore container cranes, quayside cranes, straddle carriers, mobile harbour cranes and other mobile equipment supporting the Port’s multi terminal operations.

The Port’s vision is to build and further develop a predictable, repeatable and stable engineering maintenance function utilising modern work methods and optimised tooling and diagnostics, all encompassed within a CI (Continuous Improvement) framework.
