Future expansion

The Common User Facility has been designed with expansion in mind - to accommodate multiple primes and to enable the support of future naval shipbuilding and maintenance contracts.

The wharf is capable of expansion to support ships over 200 metres in length and the shiplift to 210 metres with a lift capacity of 22,000 tonnes.

Options exist to construct an additional dry berth to the north of the runway and/or to extend the runway and dry berth across Mersey Road North.
