Able Seaton Port Dredging Pays Off

The Able Group has further strengthened its position in the offshore recycling market with a £6 million investment at the Seaton Port facility on the River Tees.

A major recently completed upgrade and dredging program means that it is able to offer almost unrivaled facilities for a range of activities, including marine decommissioning, offshore wind installations and handling large-scale project cargo,” reported the company.

According to the company, this latest phase of the investment at Able Seaton Port included extensive dredging works. The dredging now provides an absolute minimum 9.5m of water in the Seaton Channel and the Holding Basin. Given the tidal range of the River Tees this figure further increases, depending on the period within the tide cycle, to between 10.4m and 15.0m.

Able’s Executive Chairman Peter Stephenson, commented “We have always taken a longer-term view in respect of our investments and these latest works will assist us to continue and deliver an even wider range of projects on time and on budget.”

The company also added that quays 10 & 11 are currently dredged to similar levels and have the capacity to be increased to a minimum level of 15.0m providing between 15.9m and 20.5m of water depth.
