Hall Construction Services Limited successfully won the tender to carry out the civil works which are expected to be completed by late autumn this year. The work involves 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 and the new cranes, which are also being purchased as part of the project.
This is the first phase of expanding Teesport’s container terminal capacity to 450,000 teu from its current capacity of 235,000 teu – an investment of more than £15m (US$4m). Subsequent phases will be investigated subject to volume growth and market stability. The port’s overall strategy is to expand capacity, including Ro-Ro traffic, to at least 650,000 teu.
“We are delighted to see this expansion project moving forward [which] will further improve performance and productivity for the port’s growing number of customers,” said David Robinson, PD Ports’ Group CEO.
