ABP Humber has recently completed an extension to its Humber Container Terminal at the Port of Hull.

An investment of £4.8 million has enabled an additional 17,600m2 of heavy-duty paving to expand the terminal’s storage capacity.

The Humber Container Terminal in Hull welcomes around 12 vessels per week from Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Ghent, serving customers Samskip, iMotion and BGF, and complements the 15 vessels served by the Humber Container Terminal at the Port of Immingham.

The two terminals work to ensure that the container business continues to grow in the Humber over the coming years, by offering additional storage space, state-of-the-art equipment, and access to the North of England and Midlands.

Simon Bird, Director Humber, said: “ABP Humber has made substantial investments in the Humber Container Terminal at the Ports of Hull and Immingham. Having completed a £50 million investment at the start of 2021, the Humber’s provision to serve the container sector goes from strength to strength with these ongoing investments. The extra space and equipment is further evidence of the growing value the terminals have in the economic life of the North of England and the Midlands.”

Clearance works for the extension were carried out by Stoneledge Ltd. and the construction works were completed by CR Reynolds.

Attenuation tanks have been incorporated into the drainage design to avoid overloading the downstream drainage system during stormy weather.

In addition to the new container storage area, the Hull Container Terminal now boasts a fantastic new gatehouse that better serves the operations team. The new facility was installed over a weekend to help minimise any disruption to the terminal.
