VolkerStevin has received a contract worth approximately £43 million from the UK's Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) to construct a new jetty at Thanckes Oil Fuel Depot.

The Thanckes depot provides fuelling facilities for the Royal Navy at Devonport Naval Base.

The project will see the company deliver a new jetty with fuel loading and new firefighting facilities.

The jetty will be constructed within a Special Area of Conservation on the river Tamar and the project has to comply with environmental regulations. The completed facility will service all of the navy fuelling requirements at Devonport.

The dredging and clearing works are due to commence in January 2018 with the main piling works starting in September 2018. The jetty is due to be in service by November 2019
