Teignmouth Dredging Pays Off

Port of Teignmouth has celebrated a historic 4000 tonne shipment record thanks to continuous investment in improvements in port infrastructure, Associated British Ports (ABP) said in their latest release. 

The tonnage-handling milestone, which marks the highest volume of cargo ever to be exported in a single shipment from the port during its long history, was achieved in collaboration with Teignmouth Harbor Commission and Sibelco.

Chris Lownds, Sibelco Flow Manager UK, said: “Teignmouth has historically been a key export port for Sibelco, due to its close proximity to our main ball clay sites at Kingsteignton, near to Teignmouth.

“The ongoing dredging campaign conducted by ABP and Teignmouth Harbor Commission have given us the opportunity to ship cargoes in vessels of 4000 tonnes, which has afforded us much greater flexibility within our supply chain, whilst enabling us to keep pace with the growing demands of our customers.”

Alex Chinchen, ABP Divisional Port Manager, Southwest Coast, added: “Each year the Port of Teignmouth handles in the region of 400,000 tonnes of bulk cargo, contributing to the local economy and the prosperity of surrounding communities and the recent channel deepening works will help us to provide a competitive and local service to our customers.”

Recent investments in port infrastructure include ABP’s newest Mantsinen crane, representing an £850,000 investment as well as an ongoing dredging campaign, which has seen an increase in the capacity of the port.
