ABP seeks to handle biggest PCTCs in Grimsby

Associated British Ports has applied for planning to expand its Grimsby River Terminal, in order to be able to handle the world’s largest car carriers

The application to the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is the critical first step in the consenting process to extend the existing berthing infrastructure, as well as deepen the berthing pocket through dredging. These improvements will enable the terminal, which can already handle two 175m long vessels simultaneously, to further support the automotive sector.

 

If approved, the port operator will commit a multi-million pound investment to the site which will see vessels up to around 9,000 CEU berth alongside.

If approved, the port operator will commit a multi-million pound investment to the site which will see vessels up to around 9,000 CEU berth alongside.

Ashley Curnow, ABP Port Manager for Grimsby said: “For many years Grimsby has been at the forefront of the movement of cars in the UK industry. This development will take us to the next exciting level. The port already has a proud history behind it and a bold future ahead.”

 

A response from the MMO is expected imminently.

 

ABP Grimsby currently handles around 500,000 vehicles a year and accounts for 50% of all VW imports into the UK. It recently expanded backland storage capacity for imported cars by redeveloping the former Huntsman Tioxide site, which it acquired for its Grimsby Automotive Terminal in 2016. On completion, 10,000 parking slots will be available.
