Dublin Port Prepares The Next Step For Its Masterplan
Dublin Port Company (DPC) is lodging an application for permission for its MP2 Project, the second major capital development project from the Port’s Masterplan 2040.
The MP2 Project involves an application for a 15-year permission for phased development works within existing port lands in the north eastern part of the port estate.
Key elements include:
A new open structure Ro-Ro jetty (Berth 53) for ferries up to 240m in length.
A reorientation of Berth 52.
A lengthening of an existing river berth (50A) to provide the Container Freight Terminal with additional capacity to handle larger container ships.
Consolidation of passenger terminal buildings, demolition of redundant structures and buildings, and removal of connecting roads to increase the area of land for the transit storage of Ro-Ro freight units.
The MP2 Project is the second of three Strategic Infrastructure Development projects required to deliver the vision of Masterplan 2040. This vision sees Dublin Port reaching its ultimate capacity by 2040 with no additional infill of Dublin Bay. The need now for the MP2 Project arises from both the level of future growth DPC is projecting and the time required to complete the development works.
