Liverpool ocean liner terminal

The port of Liverpool has been synonymous with ocean liners for the whole of the 20th century, in the later part of the 1970’s and 80’s this declined, traffic moved to East coast ports to serve the European market. Cruise ships were starting to sail from Southampton and Dover. A decision was taken to open a new cruise terminal in Liverpool. This was designed to cater for the world’s largest cruise ships.

The photograph, taken at night for effect, shows the Queen Mary 2 docked at the new terminal on the Mersey. Our Fuel Systems Division supplied, installed and commissioned the new fuel system for Peel Ports. The Queen Mary 2 fully loaded carries 3,885 tons of marine gas oil.

 

Our work included:

  • Heavy and minor sized pipework
  • Valves and guaging
