PORR has been represented in the United Kingdom with a branch office in London since April 2016. Strategically our target markets in the UK are in tunnelling projects and the supply and installation of the SlabTrack Austria (STA) where we offer our differentiators in these specialist arenas.
Our presence in the UK resulted in the successful contract award from National Grid for the construction of the Feeder 9 Gas Replacement Pipeline – a 1200mm diameter steel pipeline inserted in a 4.00m diameter tunnel below the River Humber near Hull.
Working in strategic partnerships with established UK Civil Engineering contractors the UK tunnelling project pipeline currently offers numerous opportunities on a wide range of schemes for Highways, Rail and Utility companies that range in diameter and value.
The construction of Britain’s High Speed Rail Link (HS2) Phase 1 from London to Birmingham and then Phase 2B to Manchester & Leeds provides PORR UK with a significant opportunity for the manufacture, supply and installation of our unique STA system.
