Peel Ports commences second phase of Liverpool2

Peel Ports Group, owner of the Port of Liverpool, has started the second phase of its expansion programme at Liverpool2, already one of the world’s most modern shipping terminals.

The company is to invest in equipment and port infrastructure works to expand the terminal and introduce further leading-edge port technology solutions.

This latest phase will include the installation of a further three ship to shore cranes (STS) and 10 cantilever rail mounted gantry cranes (CRMG).

These will add to the previous five STS cranes and 12 CRMG cranes installed as part of Phase 1 which was opened in November last year.  Liverpool2 will have the capacity to manage the unloading of two 380m vessels simultaneously.

There will also be additional reefer points installed to allow the terminal to handle even greater quantities of refrigerated containers at the Port of Liverpool.

Launched in November 2016, Liverpool2 represents a £400m investment that provides a state-of-the-art ocean gateway for international trade to and from the UK. The deep water facility is capable of accommodating the world’s largest container vessels and connects road, rail and canal networks linking directly to the heart of the UK mainland, accessing a catchment of over 35 million people, almost 58% of the UK’s population.
