Able UK welcomes project's green light from planners

October 21- Teesside-based Able UK, a specialist in the rehabilitation and development of disused sites and facilities, has welcomed approval for its GBP100 million (USD157.8) port-related logistics development in north east England.

Group development director for Able UK, Neil Etherington, said the decision was "great news for our company" and followed significant investment in the South Humber Bank, the last remaining strategic development site fronting a deep water estuary in the UK.

 

The proposals will eventually create around 5,000 jobs and include the creation of transport depots, warehousing and external storage areas, together with offices, a business park and a motel.

 

There will be road and rail links to Immingham Port and the Humber Sea Terminal and a large part of the site will also provide landscaping and provision of areas for wildlife and ecology.

 

Able UK operates four facilities on the River Tees, two of which have been developed particularly to receive and dispose of marine-related structures and ships. The largest facility, known as the Teesside Environmental Reclamation and Recycling Centre (TERRC), Hartlepool was acquired in 1996 and has been developed to receive ships and the majority of offshore structures scheduled to be decommissioned from the British and continental offshore sectors.

 

The dock activities at Able's port facilities include the handling of abnormal, heavy lift loads.
