Special Award for London Gateway
DP World London Gateway Port and Logistics Park received a Special Award for Engineering and Contribution to London’s Economy from the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) this week.
The annual ICE London Civil Engineering Awards celebrate outstanding engineering achievement. The Awards were held at the home of the Institution of Civil Engineers in Westminster and were judged by an expert panel from within the world of civil engineering.
Owned and operated by DP World and situated on the north bank of the River Thames, London Gateway Port and Logistics Park will provide deep-sea shipping access to the largest consumer markets in the UK.
The new port, integrated with Europe’s largest logistics park, was recognised at the ceremony for its contribution to the London economy, which includes the creation of 36,000 jobs in the UK, 12,000 of which will be permanent positions at the port and logistics park.
The judges recognised the role engineers have played in designing and realising London Gateway, saying: “Engineering has underpinned this development, which will have a major impact upon the economy and bring sustainability benefits”.
Specifically designed and engineered to make UK supply chains more sustainable, London Gateway is a deep-water port which is closer to consumers and major hubs of distribution so goods will not have to travel as far in future in supply chains.
Andrew Bowen, London Gateway’s Engineering Director said: “Receiving this prestigious accolade is a great reward and incentive for all those who have been involved in this incredible engineering project to date. We are committed to the success of this project and we are all looking forward to London Gateway’s opening in Q4 this year.”
