Liverpool2 in High Voltage Venture


In a bid to create a new power network for the Liverpool2 container terminal, Peel Ports and SP Energy Networks have opted to collaborate on a three-year project, which marks one of the largest private energy connections schemes in the UK, and has more than doubled Liverpool2’s power supply from 20 megavolt amperes (MVA) to 50 MVA.

Construction work at Liverpool2 is already underway with the support of US$53 million by the UK government which will be used to dredge the bay, thereby allowing larger ships to call at the terminal.

In the Liverpool Echo recently, Doug Coleman, Construction Director for Liverpool2, said: “The new energy network will supply the new container terminal as well as giving greater resilience to our whole operation at the Port of Liverpool.

“It’s a huge milestone for us as we continue work to create a new gateway facility that will help global shippers trade with the UK by reducing costs, carbon emissions and congestion in the supply chain.”

Around $460m has been spent on the Liverpool2 construction project that intends to allow 95% of the world’s shipping fleet to berth at the terminal.
