[ July 28, 2015   //   ]

Associated British Ports (ABP) is building a £2.2 million bulk terminal at Garston. With the port’s current stores at capacity, the construction of the new facility will provide an additional 3,950 square metres worth of storage for bulk commodities such as wheat, rice, fertiliser and organic feed. The warehouse is being constructed by 3b Construction Ltd and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

It also has solar panels to provide a clean energy generating capacity of 200kw.

ABP director short sea ports, Andrew Harston,said: “Our investment at Garston is yet another example of ABP’s ongoing strategy to add state-of-the-art bulk stores across our ports in order to better serve our customers. ABP has built new stores in Ayr, Ipswich and now Garston and Teignmouth.”
