Virtual Networking with Port of Tilbury - An Update on Tilbury 2

Thursday 24th September 2020
3:00pm - 4:30pm

Join us to hear from John Speakman – Senior Assets Manager for the Port of Tilbury

Port of Tilbury is London’s major port, the largest port on the Thames and also the largest multi-modal port in the South East. The port offers operational support for many different cargoes, which total 16 million tonnes per annum and this is estimated to value around £8.7 billion.

Having steadily grown since its’ opening in 1886 Tilbury’s owners, Forth Ports Group, obtained approval to build a new terminal adjacent to the current port in February 2019. The construction of the new port, known as Tilbury2, is being built on the 152-acre site which was part of the former Tilbury Power Station.
Despite the restrictions put in place during the Covid-19 pandemic, great progress has been made on the construction of Tilbury2 – join us to find out more!
