Peel Ports appoints 10 to infrastructure framework

Ramboll, Turner & Townsend, and Waterman Infrastructure & Environment are three of the firms selected for the port’s eight-year capital investment programme.

Other companies to partner with Peel Ports Group include Jacobs, Currie & Brown, HaskoningDHV, Pell Frischmann, Tetra Tech, Tony Gee and Partners, and Arch Henderson.

Peel is aiming to invest £600m in sustainable infrastructure projects in the near future. By joining the framework, the 10 companies have signed long-term agreements with the port operator for specialist consultancy services, quantity surveying, and project management.

Those on the framework will be charged with assisting the port operator in its bid to be carbon neutral by 2040.

Lewis McIntyre, managing director of port services at Peel Ports, said that the framework would “benefit both our customers and the wider ecosystem over the years to come”.

He continued: “It will allow us to improve our infrastructure across our port estate, while seeking the best innovation and sustainable solutions which will benefit the entire supply chain.

“The expertise these companies bring will be vital for our business going forward, and we look forward to growing those partnerships in the coming months.”

Peel Ports owns and operates six ports in the UK: Liverpool, Heysham, Manchester Ship Canal, Medway (Sheerness/Chatham), Clydeport, and Great Yarmouth.

Peel said those in the framework would be participating in projects similar to two recent schemes: the delivery of Gladstone passage outer lock gates at the Port of Liverpool and the development of the 242,400 sq ft rail-linked Bulk and Steel facility.
