The Bristol Port Co. (Bristol Port) is planning to undertake the construction of a deep-sea container terminal project in the UK.
The project involves the construction of a deep-sea container terminal with a capacity of 1.5 million TEU.
It will include the construction of four berths capable of receiving 16m draught vessels at all states of the tide, 1,200m of operational quay wall providing berths for deep-sea and feeder container vessels, reclamation of 55ha of intertidal and subtidal area for container handling and storage area and HGV holding and loading area, storage facility, a rail terminal and road system linking new handling and storage area to existing port infrastructure, the installation of container handling equipment, navigation aids and lighting, and provision of offices, workshops and warehouses and links to the port's existing rail and road connections.
HR Wallingford and Ravensrodd Consultants Ltd have been appointed as study consultants and Halcrow as a marine consultant for the project.
In April 2007, Royal Haskoning was commissioned by Bristol Port to carry out flood risk assessment (FRA) for the proposed reconfiguration.
Bristol Port submitted its harbor revision order application and environmental statement in respect of the planned deep-sea container terminal in the third quarter of 2008.
In March 2010, the detailed sampling program designed by consultants Royal Haskoning and Bristol Port’s Harbour Revision Order was granted.
In October 2010, Construct Bristol Terminal (CBT) joint venture led by international civil engineering contractors Costain and BAM Nuttall together with major dredging specialists Westminster Dredging Co. and Van Oord was appointed to undertake investigation works.
CBT has been engaged under an early-contractor-involvement (ECI) professional services contract and the site investigation work will be used to reinforce existing records and develop the design, alongside leading marine consultants Halcrow.
In December 2010, the investigation works started and was completed in 2011.
In October 2013, the project was put on hold for five years due to unfavorable market conditions.
In April 2016, the project has been delayed again, potentially up until 2030 and First Corporate Shipping, who owns Avonmouth Dock has applied for a ten-year extension to its permission to build the container terminal. Once started, the terminal will be built-in three years.
As of August 2017, Bristol Port is looking for potential investors.
