Blyth sets its sights on decommissioning

November 23 - The UK's Port of Blyth is set to move into the offshore decommissioning market following a successful application for a decommissioning licence from the UK Environment Agency.

The port is now readying a designated 2.3 ha (5.7 acre) decommissioning site within its Battleship Wharf terminal, which is now licensed to handle up to 50,000 tonnes of offshore energy materials per year.

Work will also commence at the port to prepare a heavy-duty concrete base and quarantine areas for hazardous waste.

The port says it is likely to focus on small to medium sized projects and pieces up to 4,000 tonnes in response to demand.

Martin Lawlor, chief executive of Port of Blyth, said: "Securing this decommissioning licence is excellent news for the Port of Blyth. It enables us diversify our offering to the offshore energy market and makes good use of our experience of the sector particularly in relation to our heavy lift and project cargo handling expertise."
