Construction continues at Port of Liverpool

The first phase of infilling has been completed at the Liverpool2, the UK port’s new container terminal.

   The first phase of infilling at Liverpool2, the new container terminal under construction at the Port of Liverpool, has been officially completed, according to a statement from Peel Ports.
   The terminal cost a reported $500 million to construct and is scheduled to open at the end of December. Liverpool2 will have the ability to handle loading or unloading two 13,500-TEU post Panamax containerships simultaneously.
   The piling process to create the 854-meter long quay wall, which began in 2014, will be completed within the next few months, Peel Ports said.
   Infilling on the 12 hectares of intertidal area began in February with the arrival of the Willem van Orange, a trailing suction hopper dredger operated by Van Oord. The dredger has a handling capacity of 21,000 tons.
   1.43 million tons of sand and silts from the Mersey Estuary have been deposited behind the new quay wall, and the Willem Van Orange is scheduled to return in early July to launch the second infilling phase to dredge an additional 4 million tons.
   In addition to further infilling, the next construction projects include installing capping beams and pocket dredging for the delivery of cranes.
