Peel Ports hunts contractors for £750m construction programme

In a bid to forge closer ties with its supply chain, the company is establishing a framework for works across its seven major ports in the UK and Ireland. 

Peel Ports wants to appoint construction firms to deliver £750m worth of general and marine construction across a range of lots over the next eight years. 

A pair of contractors are wanted for £300m worth of major projects across the seven ports: Port of Liverpool, Heysham Port, Manchester Ship Canal, Medway, Clydeport, Great Yarmouth, and a container terminal in Dublin. 

The framework also features regional lots. In the North West, four places for £235m of general construction work are up for grabs and another two for marine construction with a value of £73m.

Lewis McIntyre, managing director of port services at Peel Ports Group, said: “Our ports form a network of busy logistics hubs servicing local, national and global supply chains, and this move represents a huge step in our efforts to futureproof that network, so we can keep responding and adapting to our port users’ needs in an agile way.

“The long-term nature of these framework agreements allows us to build meaningful, commercially sustainable partnerships with our construction contractors. It further allows us to appoint a collection of regional suppliers to give us breadth and depth of scope, skill, and responsiveness.”

He added: “The way the frameworks are structured provides invaluable opportunities for the successful partners to design and build  sustainable solutions for our various projects, in what will be a truly collaborative approach as we aim for net zero by 2040.”
