Spencer Group Paves the Way for ABP

Privately owned engineering firm Spencer Group has been awarded a contract to construct 12,000m2 of paving, on behalf of ABP, at King George Dock in Hull.

Spencer began work on the 26th May 2015 and will be finished on-site by the end of August. The works consist of a large cut and fill earthworks operation, followed by the installation of new drainage, ducting, kerbing and 3no 25m high mast lights.

The new paved area will be used for the storage of timber by Global Shipping, a break-bulk cargo operator in the Humber ports.

Derek Barr, Spencer Senior Project Manager, said: “This is the second award in two months we have received from ABP and we are extremely proud to be able to work so closely with them. Last year we successfully designed and built a Rail Loading of Biomass Facility at Queen Elizabeth Dock, so we know the logistics of the site very well.”

This project will run alongside the Kingeo Relocation contract, which was awarded to Spencer in April 2015. The works comprise of the design and construction of a new primary substation.
