Boulting Group Make Progress on the London Gateway Project
London Gateway is a unique project undertaken by DP World. It combines the UK's newest deep-sea container port with one of Europe's largest logistics park.
Situated on the former Shell Haven site in Thurrock, Essex, the site occupies a vast 1,500 acres of brown field land. The scale of this project makes it one of the largest development sites taking place in the UK today.
The Port is being constructed using world-leading technology that will help increase productivity and reduce costs. Smarter logistics will provide a more environmentally way to transport goods to their destination.
As part of the project, Boulting Group was awarded the contract to install a new pipeline running from a Thames side jetty to the existing Shell Haven tank farm. Scope of work includes the fabrication and installation of approximately 6000 metres of free issue carbon steel pipework.
Work commenced on site in August 2010 and as you can see from our exclusive images, the project is progressing to schedule. With the last of the railway pipe bridges installed and trenches dug to restrict access, all seems to be taking shape.
On completion, the port will be able to handle the largest container ships in the world and will dramatically increase the capabilities of London in handling modern container ships.
With 40-50 Boulting Group personnel working on the project, this really is an impressive project for Boulting Group to be involved in.
