It is great to see the Port of London Authority seeking expressions of interest from potential operators of this facility.
National Maritime has worked with the Greater London Authority since 2015, when the Mayor of London first sought a development partner with the necessary expertise, ability, and financial strength to comprehensively re-develop the Island.
Our initial consultation events titled ‘A Commercial Boatyard for London to Support River Transport Growth’ held on board a Thames Clippers with Daniel Bridge and Sean Collins and then later at the Old Royal Naval College with the University of Greenwich and Richard Gibb London & Regional Properties really helped promote this unique opportunity to maritime operators and stakeholders within the UK’s busiest inland waterway.
As part of the overall multi-million-pound industrial regeneration scheme , National Maritime continues to work to curate and deliver maritime enterprise space as part of The Royal Docks Team transport and engineering vision for Albert Island which will support the London Borough of Newham community and UK maritime SMES.
Alongside this our UK SME Working group continues to work together to help the docks move towards becoming the world’s most sustainable dock.
