UK Dredging

UK Dredging (UKD) operates the largest British-owned dredging fleet and specialises in the provision of reliable and cost effective port maintenance dredging services.


ABP raises finance through two entities ABP Finance PLC (for publicly listed debt) and ABP Acquisitions UK Limited (for unlisted debt).

The group is the UK’s leading ports operator and debt holders benefit from security granted through the group’s Whole Business Securitisation structure.

The group has a broad range of debt financing that it has obtained from diversified sources such as the debt capital markets, banking institutions, and international private placements.

The group’s debt is all denominated in GBP (debt raised in foreign currencies is converted to GBP using cross currency swaps) and the group is required to maintain at least 75% of its debt at fixed rates (currently approximately 100% is fixed).
