Peel Ports Commences Second Phase of Liverpool2

Peel Ports Group, owner of the Port of Liverpool, has commenced the second phase of its expansion program at Liverpool2. The company is set to invest in equipment and port infrastructure to expand the terminal and introduce further cutting-edge port technology solutions.

This latest phase will see the installation of a further three ship to shore cranes (STS) and 10 cantilever rail mounted gantry cranes (CRMG). These will add to the previous five STS cranes and 12 CRMG cranes installed as part of Phase 1 which was opened in November last year. Liverpool2 will have the capacity to manage the unloading of two 380m vessels simultaneously.

Mark Whitworth, CEO of Peel Ports said: “This is an important step in the development of Liverpool2 and reflects our confidence and our long term commitment to positioning the North of England as a competitive route to international markets and a major port for global trade. The development of the project program is now well underway. We are currently preparing the outline designs and would look to be in a position to appoint construction partners in spring of next year, with a view to commencement of construction shortly after. We anticipate a completion date for Phase 2 in 2019. The world class facilities which we have at Liverpool2 will allow us to capture and grow a greater share of the container market, offering cargo owners in the north of the country a more competitive route to market, getting their goods closer to their end destination. We are in a good place in our discussions with shipping lines; there are more opportunities on the horizon at the Port and our confidence is high as a result.”
