Aberdeen-based marine contractor Briggs Marine has strengthened its presence in Liverpool with the announcement of a contract with Peel Ports worth £2 million annually.
The agreed deal is for Briggs Marine to supply all mooring services for ships arriving and leaving the Port of Liverpool.
The new 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.”
