The heavy-lift quay, along the banks of the River Tees, will provide direct access to some of the world’s the biggest wind farms and help position the site as the UK’s premier offshore wind hub, said Teesworks.
The 1 km South Bank Quay will help unlock 2300 acres of land to the south of the River Tees for economic development focusing on innovation, advanced manufacturing, and clean energy.
Faithful+Gould and Atkins, both part of SNC-Lavalin Group, have been appointed by Teesworks to help deliver the quay.
Faithful+Gould and Atkins will project manage the South Bank Quay scheme which will see the demolition of an existing wharf, jetties and other structures along the river and phase one construction of 450 metres of usable deep-water quay, including heavy lift platform and concrete paving providing direct access to vessels.
Other services being provided include contract administration, NEC Supervision, risk management, and project controls coordination.
Sean Lynch, a director at Faithful+Gould, said: “Being from and living in the area, I am proud to be leading this project and that the South Bank Quay project will be delivered by our office in Stockton-on-Tees.
“This area has so much to offer and we’re proud to be playing our part in a transformation which will set a benchmark for regeneration and subsequent economic growth.”
