£15m for new refrigerated cargo terminal

UK: A £15m contract to build a new 9,630m² refrigerated cargo terminal at Dover’s Western Docks has been awarded to Buckingham Group Contracting.

Part of the Port of Dover’s flagship Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development, the new multi-purpose refrigerated cargo facility is designed to meet the future demands of the business.

The new terminal will be an externally-clad steel-frame building with state-of-the-art facilities including eight chambers, each individually temperature controlled and capable of holding cargo between 1ºC to 14ºC (+/-1ºC), with 20 dock levellers to produce a rapid turnaround for Port of Dover Cargo Ltd customers.

Scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2019, the terminal will be served by completely new marine and land infrastructure including two cargo berths.

“We are looking forward to working with the Port of Dover and other contractors to deliver one of the most important cargo projects in North West Europe and support the creation of new jobs for local people,” said Andy Morris, the senior project manager at Buckingham Group Contracting.
