Viterra UK Limited (Viterra) is pleased to offer improved services for its customers through the Port of Immingham, following the investment of two new metal plate bunds by the port’s owner, Associated British Ports (ABP).
The metal plate bunds can be set up on any quay and on any surface, increasing import and export efficiencies throughout the site. They are also suitable for the loading of grain for human consumption, as they can be fully sanitised between vessel discharges.
The Port of Immingham plays an important role in Viterra’s local and global network, offering extensive storage capacity and deep-water facilities for the export of UK produce to key demand regions across the globe, and the receival of goods from international markets.
ABP’s investment follows Viterra’s opening of a 35,000 metric tonne storage facility located on the ABP Humber International Terminal in April 2022, strategically expanding the total storage capacity within the Port of Immingham.
“These combined investments provide the necessary storage for Viterra’s expanding import & export business, serving farmers and processors throughout Central and Eastern England,” explains Viterra UK Managing Director James Maw.
The Panamax berth capability, combined with the excellent road network around Immingham will further add to the range and quality of services that Viterra provides to its customers.”
