Bulk cargo association bulking up

The Association of Bulk Terminal Operators (ABTO) has reported significant new UK members - ABP Humber and Redcar Bulk Terminal

Associated British Ports’ terminals in Hull, Grimsby, Goole and Immingham together handle more than 65 Mtpa of cargo, with Immingham accounting for around 55 Mtpa of bulk. Simon Bird, Director, Humber, ABP Ports, commented: “With developments taking place across the Humber region together with the emergence of new bulk products, such as biomass, an association capable of representing the interests of the bulk sector is important to the industry.”

Redcar Bulk Terminal operates a 32m long quay on the South Bank of the River Tees. Developments to revive West Cumbria’s mining industry could benefit the Redcar Terminal, which has been earmarked to handle coal for onward transportation to Europe.

Garry O’Malley, General Manager, Redcar Bulk Terminals, said: “As one of the UK’s major bulk terminal operators, joining the Association of Bulk Terminal Operators provides an invaluable opportunity to network with other terminal operators with a mutual interest in cargo handling, environmental challenges and safety.”

Redcar Bulk Terminal, on the south bank of the River Tees, was part of the UK’s integrated steelworks and an import facility for iron ire and coal cargoes. Following the closure of the steelworks in October 2015, RBT has continued to operate and grow as a facility capable of handling large capesize vessels with draughts up to 17m. RBT currently handles imports of coal, pet coke, GBFS and aggregates and export cargoes of scrap and met coke.

“British Steel, which recently acquired a 50% stake in the business, considers the terminal a perfect strategic fit, given its coveted position in the North East,” said O’Malley. “It offers a superb gateway into the industrial heartland of the UK and to businesses throughout the North of England.”

The Association of Bulk Terminal Operators was established in 2015. Based in the UK, its membership includes operators in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
