Grimsby goes to the next level

[ April 11, 2019   //   ]

ABP has applied to the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) to expand its Grimsby River Terminal (GRT) to handle the world’s largest car carriers.
The port operator wants to extend the existing berths, as well as deepen the berthing pocket through dredging to allow the terminal, which can already handle two 175 m long vessels simultaneously, to accommodate 9,000-vehicle ships.

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.
