Global Response to Plans for Portland Ship Repair Yard

Portland Port

7:48am 9th October 2013

Plans to build a ship repair yard at Portland Harbour has drawn international interest.

More than 10 companies from the UK and abroad have put themselves forward to become the development partner.

Portland is one of the most economically active ports on the south coast and plans for the repair yard could create up to a thousand jobs.

Interested parties will now be invited to the Harbour for further discussions.

Mr Davies added: "The preferred partner will be given an exclusive period of 3 months to agree all necessary contracts and leases with us, with the anticipation that we will announce the partnership arrangements in April 2014."
