The deepwater shipping port, located about 25 miles from central London, will have an initial capacity of 1.6Mteu.

The port operator also awarded four port equipment contracts, including a partnership with Cargotec for port automation.

ZPMC has been contracted to provide eight quay cranes – which DP World claims will be the largest in the world – able to handle the next generation container vessels of 18,000teu capacity.

DP World said the port project is expected to bring £3.2bn to the UK economy each year.
