VolkerFitzpatrick has been conferred contracts for electrical and civil constructions. ZPMC has received an order about four new quay cranes. The third berth is anticipated to start working during the second half of 2016.

The Secretary of State for Transport Patrick McLoughlin has paid a visit to the port, accompanied by local MPs. According to him Britain is a desirable country for investment by companies because of the ongoing expansion of the London Gateway Port. The third new berth that has been made officially public today will produce a great number of new job opportunities. It is also a sign of the continuous growth of the UK maritime sector. The latter is a direct contributor to GBP 14 billion to UK’s economy every year and it maintains more than a million jobs.
