The latest project at Suffolk port involves the design and construction of 13 hectares of paved container yard directly behind berth 9. During the 15-month programme, VolkerFitzpatrick will be working together with fellow VolkerWessels UK business, VolkerStevin, to reclaim 3.2 hectares of seabed behind the existing finger pier.
VolkerFitzpatrick’s specialist paving division will carry out the works by utilising its own paving and concrete batching plant onsite.
Completion of the new container yard, which will comprise 10 container blocks and allow six-high stacking, is scheduled for early 2019. The yard will add 18,000 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) of stacking capacity to the 130,000 TEU already available at what is the UK’s largest container port.
