VolkerStevin JV confirmed for Dover Port job

Port of Dover

Port of Dover has confirmed that VSBW, a joint venture between VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster, will build two new berths under a £115M contract.

The contract for Port’s Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development involves the design and construction of two new berths including quay walls and land reclamation as well as a new marina pier, the marina curve, navigation channel and new lock gates, a bascule bridge and capital dredging work.

Work is set to begin within the next few weeks after key enabling works and it will be finished by the end of 2018.

“Dover Western Docks Revival is a key part of our vision to deliver critical national infrastructure whilst supporting local economic prosperity,” said Port of Dover chief executive Tim Waggott.

“Together with VSBW, we are delivering the essential building blocks from which we can develop a new cargo terminal and distribution centre. This also provides the opportunity to enhance the efficiency of our ferry operations through the creation of a dedicated ferry terminal as well as a transformed waterfront.”
