Teesport makes quay investment

June 10 - Teesport has completed a GBP22 million (USD34.1 million) investment project, which included the reconstruction of 305 m of quay to enhance and expand the port's handling facilities.

The infrastructure and reconstruction works carried out on the quay will enable Teesport to accommodate fully laden Panamax vessels carrying some 70,000 tonnes of cargo with loading ability at any level of tide.

Operator of the UK port, PD Ports, explained that in addition to the deeper berth, the quay deck now has an enhanced load bearing capacity compared to the original quay and will therefore be able to handle heavier project cargoes.

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

The next phase of the reconstruction and upgrade project is due to commence in July and an additional 245m of quay will be upgraded over a seven-month period, providing further capacity at the port.
