The Graham Lagan Construction Group JV will be responsible for preparing the site for Siemens, which can then begin construction of its own facilities. The site is due to become fully operational by summer 2017.
The work will be overseen by ABP’s consulting engineer CH2M Hill.
The scheme includes infilling one third of Alexandra Dock with 780,000m3 of material and reclaiming 7.5 hectares of the river to create a new 650-metre quay wall, which can accommodate three offshore wind installation vessels.
Construction will also involve dredging a new berth pocket, completion of earthworks and surfacing, building internal access roads and service networks, construction of a new roll-on/roll-off ramp and demolition of some existing buildings.
Graham Lagan Construction Group JV project director Paul Scott said: “This is a major opportunity for Graham Construction and Lagan Construction Group, and a project we as a joint venture are delighted to have secured. Green Port Hull will be a world-class manufacturing facility and will establish the Humber at the centre of the offshore wind sector in the UK.
“A key part of this project's success will be the high level of teamwork between our staff and those of ABP and the commitment of all individuals to delivering a high-quality project, safely and on time.”
The entire Siemens development will be spread across two sites comprising the Green Port Hull facility and a new rotor blade manufacturing base in nearby Paull, in the East Riding. Siemens is investing £160m across the two locations and ABP is investing a further £150m in the Green Port Hull development.
