Farrans renews membership of British Port Association


Farrans Constructions has renewed its membership of the British Ports Association as we continue to grow our portfolio of marine projects across the UK and Ireland.

The British Ports Association is the national membership body for ports in the UK.

It represents the interests of operators that handle 86% of all UK port traffic, to Westminster and devolved Governments, and other national and international bodies.

It is an inclusive and progressive association, open to all and committed to supporting Government to deliver a policy framework that enables all ports to thrive. Members comprise of many ports, terminal operators and port facilities, all of varying size, location and nature, and the Association is able to draw upon a wide range of experience and knowledge to represent its members’ interests.

Jonny Kerr, civil operations director for Farrans Construction, said: “We are looking forward to continuing our membership with the British Port Association again and building on the relationships that we have already made within this industry.

“We have extensive experience of self-delivering some of the largest marine projects in the UK and Ireland, supported by our internal plant capabilities. We are working on a number of high-profile marine projects at the moment and recently completed 12 Quays for Peel Ports, Montrose Port for Montrose Port Authority and we are currently using our marine experience on projects across the UK, from Nigg for Global Energy in Scotland to NEP1 in the North East of England through to the Gull Wing bridge and Great Yarmouth’s Third River Crossing in the South East of England.”
