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 is consulting with stakeholders on plans to install several onshore wind turbines to make the Humber ports greener and more resilient against higher energy costs. To continue decarbonisation efforts and to help control electricity costs for the ports, ABP is proposing to build onshore wind turbines at Grimsby, Immingham, and Hull. The company will continue to invest in solar generation, but onshore wind will have the ability to generate 24 hours per day all year round. ABP expects this will help secure the viability of the ports for the long term and provide an attractive place for business for existing and new customers, thereby helping to safeguard existing, and hopefully lead to more, local employment at the ports.

ABP supports government ambitions to achieving Net Zero and recently launched its own £2 billion plan for Energy Transition growth and Net Zero 2040. Called Ready for Tomorrow, it looks to meet the challenges and grasp the opportunities. ABP has already reduced its own CO2 emissions by over 38% since 2014 and invested over £55 million in sustainability measures, which includes the largest commercial rooftop solar array in the UK at the Port of Hull, electric vehicles and cranes across the group and a new fleet of more fuel-efficient pilot boats. More information about the proposed onshore wind development at the Port of Grimsby can be found below.
