Associated British Ports (ABP) has applied to the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) to expand its Grimsby River Terminal (GRT) in order to be able to handle the world’s largest car carriers. 

According to ABP, the application is the critical first step in the consenting process to extend the existing berthing infrastructure, as well as deepen the berthing pocket through dredging.

“These improvements will enable the terminal, which can already handle two 175 m long vessels simultaneously, to further support the automotive sector,” said ABP.

If approved, the port operator will commit a multi-million pound investment to the site which will see vessels able to contain almost 9,000 vehicles, berth alongside.

Ashley Curnow, ABP Port Manager for Grimsby, said: “For many years Grimsby has been at the forefront of the movement of cars in the UK industry. This development will take us to the next exciting level. The port already has a proud history behind it and a bold future ahead.”

A response from the MMO is expected imminently, said ABP.
