Port of Dover searches for £20M civil frameworks contractors

32334805513 fa53702bae o cropped

The Port of Dover has started the search for contractors for its four-year £20M civil engineering framework.

The Kent port is seeking expressions of interest from contractors with experience of delivering planned and reactive civil, paving, highways and marine civil works in an operational environment.

The framework for Europe’s busiest ferry port will begin in 2019 and run until 2023. A supplier event will be held on 5 May at Cruise Terminal 1 at the Port of Dover, and the contract notice is expected to be published on 25 May. 

VSBW, a joint venture between VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster, won a £115M contract to build two new berths at the port at the beginning of last year.

The work, which involves the design and construction of two new berths including quay walls and land reclamation as well as a new pier, the marina curve, navigation channel and new lock gates, a bascule bridge and capital dredging work, is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
