Neptune Marine Taking Part in the Tilbury2 Project

Neptune Marine – specialized provider of marine solutions in the Netherlands – is taking part in a major port expansion project near London, UK.

The provider of charter equipment delivered barges to UK-based construction firm GRAHAM for the expansion of Tilbury2.

The Port of Tilbury, one of the UK’s fastest growing port, is vital in providing fast, modern distribution services to the Greater London Area and the South East of England.

Therefore, a new state-of-the-art port terminal is under construction – Tilbury2 and is expected to be operational in 2020.

GRAHAM is delivering both the terrestrial and marine contract.

The Marine contract includes works within the tidal estuary beyond the existing sea wall/flood defenses, including a floating pontoon, linkspan/articulated bridge, associated pilings and riverbed preparation for the berth.

Overall, the Tilbury 2 project includes construction of a new berthing facility including new roll-on/roll-off berth; improvement and extension of the river jetty; creation of hard surfaced pavements, new and improved conveyors, etc.
