ABP cements South Wales deal

[ December 13, 2021   //   ]

Associated British Ports has signed a long-term stevedoring agreement with building firm Tarmac in Port Talbot, South Wales. ABP has worked with Tarmac in its ports of Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Garston (Liverpool), Southampton, Ipswich, and the Hams Hall Rail Terminal in the West Midlands. The Port Talbot deal is for loading of ground granulated blast furnace slag, a steel-making by product used as a cement replacement material. The cargo will typically be shipped to other ABP ports in the UK for use in concrete production. ABP has invested more than £400,000 in a new Hitachi shovel and Edge conveyor shiploading equipment, and recruited two new members of staff.
