Associated British Ports (ABP) is on the hunt for a contractor to design and construct roll-on/roll-off (RORO) terminal and marine infrastructure at the Port of Immingham in the Humber Estuary.
ABP has developed the concept design under its newly establish professional services framework and is going to market under a negotiated procedure to bring the design and build contractor onboard early.
The £90M contract will be awarded to a lead consortium who will work under a two-stage contracting method. The first stage will see the further development of the design in a collaboration between ABP and the contractor, while the second stage will see the completion of the remaining design and construction works.
The work will include design and construction of:
-Up to three new outer harbour berths to serve RORO and ROPAX vessels
-Associated marine infrastructure including finger pier, pontoon, link-span and jetty approach structures
-Landside development including freight and passenger vehicle parking and highways infrastructure over a minimum of 18.5ha
-A new passenger terminal building, including an engineering workshop and all associated incidental works
The contract duration is 26 months.
The deadline for expressions of interest is 15 August and invitations to tender are expected to be sent around 21 September.
