Trinity Terminal, constructed in the 1980s, forms part of the container terminal.

The project involved strengthening the quay wall at Berths 6 and 7 over a length of 500m to enable them to be deepened to facilitate larger container vessels.

Works also included the installation of additional tie rods fixed to the front combi pile quay wall and supported from the existing rear anchor wall. Another part of the strengthening works, in advance of the tie rod installation, required the installation of tubular steel piles.


Additionally, works also involved rear crane beam strengthening and refurbishment, refurbishment of the quay crane rail, and replacement of the front quay rail and panzer belt.

Following the completion of the strengthening and refurbishment, we undertook paving works.

Strengthening &

The Port of Felixstowe is the largest and busiest container terminal in the UK. Our works were phased so that Berths 6 and 7 could remain in operational use for vessels throughout our works. A corridor for passage of HGV and containers was also maintained through our work site to minimise disruption in the port.

We also undertook this project alongside our separate contract for the berth realignment and construction of a new linkspan at Dooley Terminal.
