Fife-based marine contractors, Briggs Marine, has bolstered its presence in Liverpool following a contract award by Peel Ports worth approximately £2million annually.
The contract will see Briggs provide all mooring services for ships arriving and leaving the Port of Liverpool including Tranmere. This contract will see Briggs building on its extensive experience in UK Terminals Operations where the company is one of the most significant operators in the sector.
This contract follows Briggs’ 2017 investment into new 500 square metre water-side facilities in the Port of Liverpool, supporting the ongoing development of its port services, renewables and sub-marine engineering offerings in the region.
Pat Diamond, commercial director at Briggs Marine, said: “This contract is another step forward in our Liverpool expansion plans and builds on our growing presence around the Mersey, with ESSAR Oil UK and existing work with Peel Ports.
“It’s very encouraging to see the rewards of our investment taking shape, as growth in North West England is a key part of our business strategy. With 120 Briggs staff now working in the region, we’re using our experience and track record to continue developing and building client relationships, as well as targeting new contracts in high-growth sectors.”
