VSBW, a VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster joint venture (JV), has been selected by the Port of Dover to execute the marine structures and bridge contract for the Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development in the UK.
The £115M contract will include the design and construction of two new berths including quay walls and land reclamation, a new marina pier, the marina curve, a navigation channel, new lock gates, and a bascule bridge.
The dredging, reclamation and compaction works will be delivered by Boskalis Westminster.
Port of Dover CEO Tim Waggott said: “This is the next important step towards the realisation of our shared vision.
“We are moving ever closer to significantly increasing the local economic benefit derived from the Port through a host of new job opportunities for local people and a transformed waterfront experience that Dover Western Docks Revival will provide.
“Already, together with our contractors, we are beginning to generate opportunities by working with local suppliers and skills providers to maximise the local benefits throughout the construction phase.”
Construction is underway and is expected to be finished at the end of 2018.
