Our Tilbury2 development is facilitating the expansion of the Port of Tilbury and supporting its “local, regional and national economic growth”.
The Terrestrial contract incorporates a Roll-On/Roll-Off (RoRo), highways works, the relocation of the existing railhead (to accommodate freight trains of 75m), and a fixed structural steel bridge to the linkspan.
Our Marine contract includes works within the tidal estuary beyond the existing sea wall/flood defences, including a floating pontoon, linkspan/articulated bridge, associated pilings and river bed preparation for the berth. In mid-March, a 250tn crawler crane completed the offloading of 800tn of sheet piles, materials required for the Construction Materials and Aggregates Terminal (CMAT) berth cut off wall.
Demonstrating our innovative approach, the first sheet piles were installed in April using a GRAHAM designed, bespoke floating piling gate. To ensure our programme maximises the working area available, we are committed to working the Upstream RoRo and the CMAT berth simultaneously.
