VIDEO: Alexandra Dock Development

Associated British Ports (ABP) has just posted the latest drone footage of the Alexandra Dock development at the Port of Hull, as ABP & Siemens work together to transform this massive site into UK’s biggest offshore wind manufacturing, installation and service facility.

It is a project with its roots stretching back as far as 2010, when the idea was first mooted that Hull would be an ideal base for the UK’s burgeoning offshore wind industry.

Responsibility for this initial construction phase and the enabling works, which began at the end of 2014 and involved ensuring the site is ready for Siemens to begin building its facilities, rests with ABP, which has invested £150 million and appointed main contractor GRAHAM Lagan Construction Group JV to ensure the work is carried out to the highest possible standard.

Following an official ground breaking event in January, all demolition work is now complete, with many steel-framed buildings meticulously disassembled for use elsewhere, while concrete has been recycled for use during the construction process.

The first marine piles are now in place and a temporary structure will be used for the mooring of dredging vessels, which will pipe in nearly one million cubic meters of sand for the infill of approximately 16 acres of the western end of Alexandra Dock. This infill activity will start in early summer.
