FOREWORD

The Port of London is the natural choice for moving goods to and from London and the South East by sea. Today, the traditional reasons for using the Port are complemented by the development of new facilities such as the London Gateway container port and a number of planned developments at Terminals along the River. The Olympics will also give a boost to trade in the immediate future. The wharves and terminals along the banks of the river Thames put you on the doorstep of a market of 23 million people, easily reached in a couple of hours’ by road, rail or water. And moving goods by water within the port is well established on the Thames: over two million tonnes is moved every year now, a figure set to more than double in the next four years. The Thames and the Port of London are the ideal place to develop waterborne freight with its environmental and logistics advantages.

LONDON... the place to be There are major developments and investments going on all the way up the river...

xpansion, investment, exciting new infrastructure projects, ‘green’ transport solutions, and events that attract the attention of the world – the Port of London has it all. London is the UK’s second biggest port by volume; the River Thames is at the centre of a huge and complex network of critical supply chains serving the country’s biggest consumer market. And there are so many stories to tell: • Underlining the importance of ‘location, location, location’, an entirely new deepwater port is emerging from the water on the north bank of the river, as DP World moves ahead with the London Gateway container port and logistics park. • The river is taking pressure off the capital’s roads as shippers and logistics managers increasingly consider the environmentally friendly alternative of transport by water. • As Crossrail and the Thames Tideway Tunnel construction projects move forward, the river will be critical in avoiding gridlock in the capital by providing the transport solution for materials in and out of London. • The Thames provides passenger transport; leisure and sporting

activities; a fantastic view of London’s iconic landmarks; the location for boat races and other high-profile events. • And coming up swiftly? The London Olympic Games and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, each of which will place a new spotlight and new demands on the river, making for an extremely busy year in 2012. “If you are going to be in a harbour authority over the next two years, this must be the place to be,” says Port of London Authority chief executive Richard Everitt. “The county of Essex is growing at a rapid rate as the London Gateway takes shape. Pictures from the air give a real sense of how much land is being reclaimed. And the London Gateway touches every single part of the PLA. “The importance of the river in serving enormous infrastructure projects such as Crossrail and the Thames Tideway Tunnel is really exciting. There are major developments and investments going on all the way up the river, from expansion plans at Oikos’ storage terminal on Canvey Island to Cory Environmental’s new waste-to-energy plant at Belvedere. “The Port of Tilbury has secured significant extra land for expansion; Tilbury Container Services has invested in new cranes and has attracted some high-profile new services; and, near Greenwich, there are plans to develop

Despite the economic crisis, London bolstered its number two position in the UK league of ports.

a new cruise terminal at Enderby’s Wharf.” Despite the economic crisis, London bolstered its number two position in the UK league of ports. Volumes were affected, of course; throughput fell from 53 million tonnes in 2008 to 45 million tonnes in 2009, and the early months of 2010 were tough as well. But the tide turned at the start of the second quarter: “Since then the growth overall has been quite fantastic,” says Richard Everitt. “We expect to have finished the year about 6% up on 2009, at 48 million tonnes.” The sudden and welcome upturn in trade has brought its challenges for the PLA’s pilotage department and work continues to recruit and train pilots to meet rising demand for their services.

DP World is making really significant strides in its dredging and reclamation work at the London Gateway. The project will move ahead in line with commercial demand, but the work being done now will benefit the port as a whole regardless of the timetable for the next phase. Once the dredge is completed, London will have a 14.5 metres all-tide access, offering a significant improvement in tidal windows to deeper draft vessels. Several key terminals on the river will benefit. Meanwhile, recent figures from the Department for Transport show that intra-port traffic on the Thames has actually increased slightly since the onset of the recession, to 2.19 million tonnes – in stark contrast to other waterways in the UK where volumes fell by as much as 40%. The

Thames is easily the busiest waterway in the UK, handling 67% of all goods transported on the country’s inland waters, and that figure is set to rise dramatically in the coming years. Freight is one thing; glamour is another. The Thames sees both, in abundance. The PLA is working closely with all the relevant authorities involved in the planning of the London Olympics and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. As in every aspect of its operations along the 95 miles of the tidal Thames from Teddington Lock to the estuary, safety of navigation, security, expert knowledge, efficient service and excellent facilities will remain paramount. At some point it is likely that the Olympic torch will go on the river and many extra passengers are expected to be

Swift, efficient, diverse, unrivalled LONDON. It’s an offer that’s hard to beat: • A network of over 70 terminals and wharf operations, on the doorstep of the UK’s biggest consumer market; • Incredible diversity, from niche upriver terminals handling construction materials to Tilbury Container Services’ giant quay cranes unloading refrigerated foodstuffs and other vital imports from across the world; • An unrivalled portfolio of services from the Port of London Authority, including pilotage, vessel traffic services, marine services, hydrographic surveying, planning, environment, diving and training; • A team of experts just waiting to help you create the perfect supply chain – green, cost-effective, swift, efficient – and to the point; • An operation that respects wildlife and the environment, looking for ‘cooperation, not conflict’; • A port that focuses on safety, security, reliability and resilience.

The Port of London plays a vital role in the nation’s supply chains; and volumes have held up relatively well compared to many others, because London handles the real ‘bread and butter’ of life. Millions of people rely on the Port of London for warmth, heat, light, transport, food, drink, reading material, furniture, buildings and the whole range of consumer goods. • Tilbury Power Station imports over a million tonnes of fuel every year, to produce enough electricity for the needs of a million people. The Coryton Refinery, owned by Petroplus, is one of the largest refineries in Europe, processing 172,000 barrels of crude oil per day and producing gasoline and diesel. Vopak specialises in the storage and handling of petroleum products, and a wide variety of liquid bulks and chemicals are handled at facilities such as TDG’s Dagenham plant, Nustar and Oikos Storage. • London doesn’t just import the fuel – it also brings in cars. At Dagenham Ford manufactures diesel engines for

export to its European car plants and handles import and export vehicles. Hyundai has a dedicated operation at the Port of Tilbury, and numbers have grown rapidly in line with the company’s huge sales success in the UK. Other marques are imported on Cobelfret’s ro-ro services into Purfleet. Dinner plates would be rather empty without the Port of London. Tilbury Container Services specialises in frozen and refrigerated cargoes, handling very high volumes of meat, butter, cheese and fruit. Tilbury Grain Terminal is one of the largest grain facilities in the UK, and Tate & Lyle Sugars Thames Refinery at Silvertown the largest cane sugar refinery in Europe. TDG handles hard and soft vegetable and edible oils for food production, and Pura Foods at Purfleet imports about 300,000 tonnes of edible oils a year, including sunflower, rapeseed, palm and coconut – packed and bulk oils are delivered to food manufacturing factories around the UK and overseas. You want to read the paper? London is the UK’s largest hub for the import of newsprint and other reeled papers, as well as a huge range of forest products – board, pulp, plywood, timber and others. Containers and ro-ro trailers bring a huge variety of

moving by boat, particularly to venues at Greenwich, Woolwich, the Royal Docks and the O2 Arena. There are also likely to be extra cruise ships in London in 2012, and the PLA has identified sites for temporary moorings for an expected influx of leisure craft, too. “We have three real challenges in the upper river: 2012, Crossrail and the Tideway Tunnel”, says chief harbour master David Snelson. “These are making for some really big growth issues and requiring a lot of complex planning. A growth problem is a good problem, but it must be managed!” I

Introduction

finished consumer products through London’s facilities – and the London Olympics are bound to push up demand for everything from souvenirs to energy drinks. London is a vital hub for the raw and semi-finished products required for major construction projects and home improvements alike. Here we're talking about the largest aggregates port in the UK and a major centre for steel traffics too. And finally, there’s the rubbish we all generate. Where does that go? On the river, of course, heading out of the capital by barge.

The Thames is at the heart of London: a marine superhighway getting you to the doorstep of the largest concentration of people in the UK. Once your cargoes are landed at the large marine terminals the river can also transport your cargoes deep into the city, landing goods and materials close to the international financial centre at Canary Wharf, the entertainment hub of the O2 arena or the cosmopolitan west of the nation’s capital around Battersea and Fulham. In challenging financial times it’s a compelling proposition, which the Port of London Authority can help you make the most of.

At some point it is likely that the Olympic torch will go on the river and many extra passengers are expected to be moving by boat...

A NEW PORT on the horizon Let’s hear it for London Gateway...

T • • • • •

he largest development within the Port of London for well over 100 years The first entirely new deepsea container port to be built in the UK in the 21st century Will handle the largest container ships in the world, within 25 miles of central London A unique combination with what will be Europe’s largest logistics park Just 10 miles from the M25 motorway At the heart of the country’s largest consumer market

On the north bank of the River Thames, a new port is, quite literally, emerging from the water. Dredging and reclamation work has been progressing rapidly for nearly a year and 2010 saw some real landmarks as owner DP World pressed ahead with this huge development. Nearly 30 million cubic metres will be dredged by the time the project has been completed. Some 12 million, has already been dredged and visitors can now walk 200 metres out on to the new land that has been created by reusing the dredged material to reclaim land. The importance of the project was underlined when DP World’s CEO, Mohammed Sharaf, visited the London Gateway site with the United Arab Emirates Ambassador to the UK, His Excellency Abdul Rahman Ghanem Al Mutaiwe’e. The Ambassador said:

12

THE PORT OF LONDON HANDBOOK 2011

London Gateway

“The project is one of the largest investments into the UK by the UAE, and I look forward to DP World delivering an exemplary world-class infrastructure asset.” Mohammed Sharaf added: “London Gateway will be one of the most advanced container terminals in the world connected to Europe’s largest logistics park and together, with the outstanding location for the hinterland markets, we believe our customers will benefit from significant efficiency savings within their supply chains.” Other visitors during 2010 included the former Prime Minister Gordon Brown and former Business Secretary Peter Mandelson in January. After the election in May, the UK’s new Business Secretary, Vince Cable, and the Thames Gateway Minister, Bob Neill, visited in the summer. DP World is investing £1.5 billion in the London Gateway development, which is taking shape on the former Shell Haven refinery site. The depths of the recession triggered a year-long review of the project but as Simon Moore, chief executive of the London Gateway, says: “This project has always been important for DP World. We are very excited to see London Gateway develop and take shape.” These are early days, of course; while the complex engineering work continues in dredging, reclaiming and reinforcing of new land – in effect, laying the foundations – DP World is

Facts and figures When complete, the London Gateway will offer: • 2,750 metres of quay • Six deepwater berths • Depth alongside of 17 metres • 24 quay cranes • 175 hectares of terminal area • A new 9 million square foot warehousing and logistics park • Rail connections • 12,000 direct jobs, and a further 26,000 in the supply chain • A positive development of a brownfield site perfectly positioned for London and the southeast and the rest of the UK.

London Gateway teamwork The Port of London Authority has been closely involved with the development of London Gateway in every aspect and at every step along the way – working with DP World on dredging, environmental, operational, safety, hydrographic, pilotage and other issues. • The PLA’s state-of-the-art ship bridge manoeuvring simulator at the Gravesend Port Control Centre has been invaluable in simulating and planning the port’s operations, and the PLA’s pilots have already begun training for work linked to London Gateway. • The PLA’s environmental team have worked closely with DP World on all environmental aspects, including water monitoring, wildlife protection, and

THE PORT OF LONDON HANDBOOK 2011

archaeological aspects such as inspecting and protecting wrecks. • The PLA’s marine team has been busy marking exclusion zones for shipping during the major dredging work, liaising with the developers and issuing Notices to Mariners where required. “London Gateway touches every single part of the PLA and all of our experts have worked incredibly hard to help move this project forward,” says PLA chief executive Richard Everitt. “We are delighted to say that south Essex is growing at a rapid rate as the new port land emerges and takes shape!”

watching the market carefully and London Gateway will open in line with market demand. To be built in phases, the port will offer annual capacity of 3.5 million teu. The combined offering of a port and a logistics park provides obvious opportunities to create low-carbon, cost-efficient portcentric supply chains based on the Thames. DP World is reporting big interest in the logistics park facilities, where major retailers and distributors are expected to set up distribution centres on the port’s doorstep, eliminating a whole leg of inland haulage as a result. “We estimate that London Gateway could lead to savings of more than 65 million HGV miles per year, which equates to an annual reduction of 148,000 tonnes of carbon emissions a year,” says Simon Moore. “With fuel costs increasing, London Gateway is a very attractive proposition for customers to reduce supply chain costs. We will also increase customers’ rail usage, as we have dedicated rail freight terminals being developed, connected to the new distribution centres. We will see the biggest warehouses in the UK being built here, which will bring significant economies of scale.”

AUTOMATED ACTION London Gateway will make use of highly automated container handling systems and controls. “The port is designed to provide a major improvement in handling speeds, which will provide a significant reduction in the time spent in port,” says Simon Moore. “Automated stacking will reduce the vulnerability to adverse weather conditions and be safer for staff.”

EASY ON THE ENVIRONMENT Environmental issues have been at the top of the agenda right from the earliest planning stages for London Gateway. And those efforts were recognised at Lloyd’s List’s Global Awards in October 2010, when London Gateway’s environmental management team, led by Marcus Pearson, picked up the Global Environment Award for its work on strategic management. More than 300,000 animals have been relocated off the construction site to new habitats, making this the largest relocation of animals ever in the UK. In October, Thames Gateway Minister Bob Neill named the new Stanford Wharf Nature Reserve created by DP World at Stanford le Hope, just west of the new port. He also helped to relocate a few more creatures to their new homes on Canvey Island. “The Minister’s visit was made in recognition of the sheer scale of the engineering and environmental strategies being applied by DP World London Gateway and wildlife groups to manage our environmental obligations,” says Simon Moore. The new nature reserve is 30 times the size of Trafalgar Square and is already attracting thousands of birds every year. “Our commitment to the protection of wildlife and the environment has been at the centre of what we have done,” says Simon Moore. “We have relocated water voles, great crested newts, grass snakes, adders and lizards. We have also created new intertidal mudflats for wading birds.” The Fishing Liaison Officer has also been kept busy, ensuring that all local fisherman and trades impacted by the project are kept up to date as well as managing a worldleading disturbance payments scheme which has been very successful in mitigating losses to the local community.

CRUISE HOPES at Enderby Wharf in the maritime heartland of Greenwich

A

new cruise terminal could be up and running on the Thames in time for the London Olympic and Paralympic Games - at the historic Enderby Wharf, in Greenwich. In January 2011, Greenwich Council members unanimously gave their approval to proposals for a mixed use development at the 3.6 hectare site. This would feature a cruise terminal accommodating vessels up to 240 metres in length and with an eight metre draught, and developer Mason Developments is aiming for a May 2012 completion. “This would be the first purpose-built fixed cruise terminal for London,” says West Properties planning director James Blakey, on behalf of the developer. “It is an enormously exciting mixed use regeneration scheme in the maritime heartland of Greenwich, including the new international cruise terminal, a high-quality hotel, affordable and private homes, business space and a skills academy, all set within highquality landscaped areas. A new public square fronting on to the River Thames with the refurbished and extended listed Enderby House as its focus would also be provided. Gaining unanimous council support was a massive step forward for the development.” The plans next have to be given a final approval by London Mayor Boris Johnson. West Properties has been in discussions with the cruise industry

THE PORT OF LONDON HANDBOOK 2011

Cruise Hopes

about the facility for some time. “We attended the Seatrade international cruise conference in Miami in 2010 and will be attending again in 2011,” says James Blakey. “We have had a significant number of calls from the cruise industry since the decision in January - there is a real enthusiasm for London and Greenwich.” Enderby Wharf is located equidistant between the Greenwich Maritime World Heritage Site and the O2 complex, and is within easy reach of the Jubilee Line, Docklands Light Railway, railway to London Bridge and the Thames Clippers river bus service. In 2009, research commissioned by the Greater London Authority and the London Development Agency on behalf of the Mayor of London identified London as a must-see destination but concluded that the lack of a purpose-built cruise terminal represented a significant missed opportunity. The research identified Enderby Wharf as the most viable site, thanks to its deep water, its location and the potential to deliver the terminal as part of a wider mixed use regeneration scheme. The wharf was once the site of a sail and cordage factory called Enderby's Hemp Rope Works, and later it was at the centre of the new submarine cable industry from the mid 19th century onwards. The first Atlantic cable was made at the site, and submarine cables continued to be produced there until 1975. I

RIVER TRAFFIC Let’s get straight to the point: freight and passengers

A

congestion-free, environmentally friendly, swift, efficient and cost-effective route to take your cargo to and from the centre of London; what more could any shipper or logistics manager want? The Thames is the UK’s busiest inland waterway for freight and in the past few years there’s been a renewed spotlight on just how much it can offer in terms of supply chain solutions – thanks to a series of major infrastructure projects in central London, and a new willingness to consider ‘alternative’ ideas for transport across the board. The construction of Network Rail’s landmark Blackfriars station redevelopment has been grabbing the headlines recently; the first railway station to straddle the Thames and being built as part of the Thameslink programme, Blackfriars has really led the way in demonstrating how the river can be at the centre of a low-carbon, low-congestion supply chain. “Blackfriars has shown clearly what the river can do,” says Jim Trimmer, the PLA’s head of planning and partnerships. “Where traditionally the ‘default position’ has always been road, because it is what people know, today there is far more interest in the opportunities offered by the river. Paradoxically, the river also offers predictability in terms of tides and flexibility in terms of a lack of congestion. If you have somewhere to load your cargo and somewhere to take it off, there are so many options.” The river has been vital in the smooth progress of the Blackfriars project, with demolition materials going out by barge and steel and other construction materials coming in.

“This is a constrained, dense urban site with railways and roads all around it; really the only way you can logically handle the materials is on the river,” says Jim Trimmer. “The roads simply couldn’t have coped with all the additional traffic.” The PLA has been involved in this project in a number of ways, including providing marine expertise and maintaining safety of navigation, closing bridge arches where necessary, coordinating barge movements and advising the contractor. “We have to provide such river users a link with our ‘world’, translating the language of the river to help the contractor,” he says. The PLA is gearing up for some really intensive use of the river, as the £15 billion Crossrail project and the Thames Tideway Tunnel projects get under way. Crossrail has signed a memorandum of understanding with the PLA to maximise the use of the Thames and the Port in its construction. At least five million tonnes of spoil from the enormous tunnelling stages of the project will go out by river; tunnel boring machines, pre-cast concrete segments, aggregates, cement, steel rails, cable, tiles, tools and equipment will all require transport by river to key sites during the construction of the new rail route. It is expected that from the third quarter of 2011, the first loads of spoil will start leaving London, by river, heading for Wallasea Island on the River Crouch.

Reactivating wharves The system of safeguarding wharves for freight operations in London has proved an important success and is attracting interest from many other waterways around the world. Jim Trimmer expects a number of wharves to be reactivated in the next year or so as several specific schemes move forward. “There is great interest in the

24

THE PORT OF LONDON HANDBOOK 2011

River Traffic

wharves from the intra-port/shortsea perspective, with schemes ranging from moving 50,000 tonnes a year up to hundreds of thousands of tonnes,” he says. “Projects like this take a long time planning and, of course, a lot of money – but we are already seeing some real results of our work.” Even in the worst of the economic downturn a healthy level of enquiries continued – and now, post-crisis, plans are being dusted down again, he says.

buses, will run from west to east London, up to 75 metres below ground and broadly following the route of the River Thames. It will connect up to overflows to capture sewage which otherwise spills into the river after heavy rain. All of the spoil from the 7 kms Lea Tunnel section linking Beckton sewage treatment works to Abbey Mills will go out by water – and this will amount to well over 1.5 million tonnes. A considerable proportion of building materials will come in by water, too. “We ensured that this was a planning condition,” says Jim Trimmer. “Tunnelling has already started and we are seeing the first boats taking the spoil downriver to the Mucking landfill to be used for final restoration there.” The 7-metre diameter Tideway Tunnel, the route of which is currently proposed to be from Hammersmith to Rotherhithe and on to Abbey Mills will stretch more than 20 kms, making it the largest tunnel project in Europe. “We are dealing with a number of seven-year construction sites,” says Jim Trimmer. “We have been working with Thames Water to have a river-first policy, so whatever site they are working at they will use the river to minimise traffic impact wherever possible.” At present, more than 2 million tonnes of cargoes, including aggregates, petroleum products, containers, household refuse and construction spoil, are carried up and down the Thames every year, removing thousands of trucks from the capital’s roads. Between them, Crossrail and the Tideway Tunnel/Lee Tunnel projects are expected to generate 20 million tonnes on the river over the next seven to eight years – more than

doubling the present river-borne volumes. The Lee Tunnel work will peak in 2012. The Crossrail project will peak between 2013 and 2015. The Tideway Tunnel work is due to peak in 2015 and be complete in 2020 “The opportunities are amazing – and the PLA is working to ensure that the required infrastructure is there,” says Jim Trimmer. “That includes knowledge and skills as well as equipment.” He believes the barging sector has been something of a ‘Cinderella industry’ for the past few years, but that is definitely in the past. “We are talking about massive change and an important legacy in terms of what we can do with containers, biomass and other cargoes which haven’t been seen on the river for decades,” he says. “We have learned from Blackfriars how we can really use the river. What these projects offer is a marvellous opportunity that we need to take full advantage of.”

LONDON OLYMPICS As the 2012 London Olympics draw ever closer, the Thames and the PLA are preparing to turn in a gold medal winning performance. The Olympics year will clearly bring another new focus to the river, with visitors expected to use water transport to reach the key sites – and also to view the sights of London while they are in the city. In advance of that, there are many materials to be delivered to the Olympics facilities in the fitting-out stages, from seats and timing equipment to energy drinks and sports

The ‘perfect case study’ The Blackfriars Station project could be used as the ‘perfect case study’ for using the river for Crossrail, the Thames Tunnel and similar projects, says Chris Livett, managing director of Bennett’s Barges and owner of Livett’s Launches. Livett’s was appointed by Balfour Beatty as principal marine services provider for the Blackfriars construction site, to provide a waterborne transport solution for the project. The work included creating a mooring system at Blackfriars for cranes, barges and layby requirements. “We have organised all the marine logistics, taking sections, scrap metal and timber out and bringing cranes, steelwork and other cargoes in, all by barge,” says Chris Livett. “We had been talking to Balfour Beatty for over a year, and started the project in earnest at the beginning of 2010. A team of 20 has been working around the clock on the project, and this will continue until 2012.” Livett’s recently brought half a station platform upriver by barge from Tilbury; the parts were loaded on to flat top barges, 300 tonnes at a time. In addition, Livett’s has used its Thames Wharf at Silvertown to serve the Blackfriars site. In recent times, Livett’s has towed everything from Concorde and a Eurostar train to pontoons for the Lord Mayor’s Show to their destinations via the Thames. Clearly the Olympic Games is another major opportunity on the horizon to make the most of the

barging option as well as increased passenger demand, says Chris Livett. Bennett’s Barges, which has just completed its successful first year as a joint venture between Aggregate Industries and Livett’s, has a fleet of 24 barges from 100 to 1,400 tons based along the Thames and into the Medway, regularly carrying refuse, bulk aggregates, containers, steel piles, rebar and other cargoes. The next step could be the introduction of reefer (refrigerated) barges, says Chris Livett. “These existed in the past. You have to look at the Continental model to understand the potential – and that is what can happen in the Thames, the UK’s busiest waterway. There is increasing interest in using the river, especially because of environmental pressures and the fact that road investment is slowing. “We are still educating people; we need to show them what happened in the past and what can be done today, and convince them that it is a good idea to take that next step, to use waterborne transport.”

“We have some really exciting and challenging times ahead of us: planning for 2012 has been continuing for some considerable time and it will become more intense as time progresses,” says Roger Flitter, secretary of the UK’s Passenger Boat Association. Of the PBA’s total 130 members around the UK, nearly 40 are operating on the Thames and they are gearing up for an exceptionally busy time: large numbers of people are expected to take to the water during both the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations and the Olympic Games. In addition, PBA members are responding to the Mayor of London’s River Concordat, a group involving boat operators, pier owners, boroughs, Transport for London,

a London railway station, tourists may not know how to get down to the river and get on a boat to see the sights,” says Roger Flitter. “We don’t have responsibility but we are very much a conduit for this.” There is an extraordinary variety of passenger boat types operating on the River Thames, he says: “We have got examples of everything that happens throughout the country. It is a really diverse range of boats, operators and types of trip, including ribs, a paddle steamer, tour boats, fast catamarans and ‘Ducks’.” Working with everybody is the key to success, he says; and he is referring to other river users as well as passenger craft on the Thames. “We can’t just consider passenger boats in isolation; and that is the jigsaw we work on. We need to optimise and manage vessels through the river during peak times and we need to discuss how to make the best use of the resource we have got.” As part of its work to promote better training and careers structure and ensure the industry has enough skippers and crew, the association is a member of the Maritime Skills Alliance, and also facilitiates joint training with the Company of Watermen and Lightermen. The PBA works closely with the PLA and other authorities with a role to play in London operations. There are regular discussions on legislation, operational codes and byelaws, fuels and other issues – and a big emphasis on safety. The introduction of the PLA’s Thames AIS regime has

kit. LOCOG (the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games) is establishing a major base at the Port of Tilbury and is in discussions with the PLA about moving containerised goods into the London sites by water. “From discussions with LOCOG we know there is a real willingness to use the river and an understanding that it can be the best solution as part of a logistics chain,” says Jim Trimmer. “When you are looking at the river as an alternative to congested roads, the price can be much more competitive.” Once the Games are under way, there will be significantly increased demand for passenger transport on the river and cruise facilities.

ESTUARY ‘petrol station’ If your car needs filling up, you don’t really want to drive too far off the motorway to find fuel...

T

he same logic applies for ships – minimum deviation is best when looking for bunkers. So a new bunkers-only service set up in the outer Thames Estuary has been very positively received by ship owners and operators. Ships transiting the English Channel can now make a minor detour to take advantage of this new ‘petrol station’ in the Thames. Cockett Marine Oil, which already has an established bunkering operation within the Thames, has set up the new estuary service working closely with the Port of London Authority. The commercial and service logic behind the new operation is clear. But there is also an important “plus” for environmental safety. Until now, ship-to-ship transfers have been allowed to take place unregulated around Britain’s coastline, including in Margate Roads anchorage, outside the PLA’s port limits and jurisdiction. New UK ship-to-ship regulations will require that bunkering takes place only within port limits. “Our port limits cover a large area and this venture brings bunkering within those limits, offering a valuable service to ships, bringing additional business into the port, and ensuring that the best safety and pollution prevention measures are in place,” says

Roy Stanbrook, the PLA’s harbour master (lower). “We have enhanced our existing Tier 2 oil response capability specifically for this operation. We are using local fishermen, fishing boats and fuel storage companies on standby for any oil spill recovery – they have been trained to MCA recognised levels and have the equipment for immediate response afloat, if that is the right solution. “This is backed up by our own Tier 2 oil spill responder, Braemar Howells.” The bunkering deliveries take place at Queen’s Channel, and all ships entering the estuary for bunkers will be required to take on a pilot. Cockett Marine Oil uses recently built double-hull chemical/oil tankers, which meet the highest international standards, to deliver bunkers. The company says it has received a very positive response to the service and hopes to develop this into significant volumes in the future. “The message we are hearing loud and clear is that the industry has been waiting for an alternative bunkers-only facility serving the English Channel and at the entrance to the North Sea,” says Karl Beeson, managing director at Cockett Group. “The two key commercial factors driving interest in the service are competitive pricing and that it requires a diversion of only one

The position has good protection from the prevailing south-westerly weather, thanks to the south-east ‘hook’ of Kent. Cockett is, at present, loading its fuel for the estuary operation in Rotterdam but that is going to change. The company is in discussions with the operators of Oikos Terminal on Canvey Island about future storage. “We are looking to consolidate our position in the UK with Thamesbased storage,� says Robert Thompson, general manager supply at Cockett Marine Oil.

afety and security will be paramount as the big events of 2012 – the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics – get under way. As the navigation authority for the tidal Thames, the PLA has a huge responsibility in this regard. “Of course, our infrastructure, systems and resources are already in place in line with our day-to-day operations and responsibilities,” says Julian Parkes, the PLA’s harbour master (safety management system) and port security officer. “And as we plan for 2012, we are involved in various forums around the Olympic Games and maritime safety. It is important that any local maritime Olympics-related issues are flagged up and that we are as prepared as we can be.” The Thames is expected to be a magnet for visiting yachts and leisure craft during the Games. But with limited facilities the PLA together with marine safety, police and security organisations is making it clear that berths are at a premium. “Our message is clear: if you are coming to the Olympic Games on the Thames in a boat, fine – it will be a good time, enjoy it,” says Julian Parkes. “But you must have moorings to go to. The basic message is: if you don’t have a mooring booked, don’t come.” The Olympic Delivery Authority

(ODA) is predicting that 6% of spectators will travel to several venues by river, particularly Greenwich and O2, Woolwich and Excel. This will largely be on existing services – but they will be more frequent and busier. The infrastructure that supports these services also needs careful consideration. A traffic model developed by consultants for the PLA is helping to identify pinch points where vessels are operating close together in time and location. “This helps us to work out where supporting infrastructure, especially for passenger traffic, is at or near capacity – or will be in the future,” says Julian Parkes. “This will also, of course, coincide with some major civil engineering projects, freight vessels looking to make the most of the tide, and all the usual big annual leisure and rowing events.” Managing all of this requires serious consideration and the PLA may have to consider additional traffic management provisions at the busiest periods. “Of course we want to see the river used more. We are working hard to meet the needs of everybody from canoeists to large vessels carrying hundreds of tonnes of freight,” says Julian Parkes. Security is increasingly closely linked with safety. The Thames is the

Supporting boatmaster’s training In an important safety move, the PLA is continuing to subsidise crucial training for boatmasters operating on the River Thames. National rules for boatmasters changed in 2007 in EU-driven regulation, but the PLA pushed the case for a more demanding regime on the Thames, to allow for the complexities of the river with its currents, tides and bridges. This Local Knowledge Endorsement was agreed by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and the PLA set aside £50,000 to provide grants to boatmasters needing to pass this exam – the money being used for a special training course at North West Kent College. MCA rules state that local knowledge has to be revalidated every five years, so the first revalidations are now on the horizon. “We have re-advertised our support of this process to make known to everybody on the river that we offer this subsidy towards the course,” says PLA chief harbourmaster David Snelson. “Basically, this applies to all the passenger boats, tugs and freight vessels in central London. And when one considers that some boats carry 250-350 passengers, some at 30 knots, at night, clearly safety is a very important issue.”

busiest waterway in the UK, attracting a huge variety of vessels from all over Europe. Relevant berths in the Port of London have been compliant with the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code since 2004 and the PLA is closely involved in supporting compliance at those facilities and, where necessary, advising the police and other agencies on port and maritime issues.

WHAT HAPPENS IF …? The Port of London Authority prides itself on its resilience and reliability. If problems arise at one Port Control Centre, for example, all VTS functions can be seamlessly switched to the other. Emergency planning and business continuity – two linked but distinctly different issues – are increasingly important for ports, and the PLA has extensive plans and procedures in place. Suppose a laden tanker collided with another vessel, causing injuries, explosion and pollution? The port authority must be ready to respond, and it’s vital that all staff and stakeholders know exactly the procedures to follow. Imagine disastrous flooding or a total power failure for a week, or a flu pandemic that kept three-quarters of the staff ill in bed or at home looking after sick family members. How would the PLA continue to provide its essential services? The 2004 Civil Contingencies Act makes the responsibilities of ports in the UK very clear. The PLA has been through a very detailed development process to ensure business continuity, and all managers are encouraged to consider the issues as part of their day-to-day organisation and operations. “Many people confuse business continuity with emergency management,” says Julian Parkes. “Emergency management is if a ship sinks out there, how do we resolve the situation, make people safe, secure the port and return to normality. Business continuity is how we continue to provide our core services in the face of disruption – say a fuel strike.”

The PLA’s business continuity plans are set against three broad disruptions: • A reduced number of people available to work, for whatever reason – for example, flu, snow or flood • No facilities to work in – for example, through power cut, fire or flood • Disruption to communications or IT infrastructure “You can put any scenario you want together and it will fit into one or more of those particular situations,” says Julian Parkes. “Our strategic planning is based on this concept.” The first priority would be to gather all the information and understand the situation clearly. Core services such as pilotage and VTS would be prioritised, and all departments would have clearly laid plans ready to follow. “We do have excellent resilience capability if we lost the Port Control Centre,” says Julian Parkes. “But there is a lot to think about – such as supply chain issues. And like every system, we continue to hold exercises, and review, develop and refine.” The PLA has also spent more time discussing issues of business continuity with its civil contingency partners and berth operators on the river, and all have been very interested and supportive. “In the face of major disruption it would not be business as usual,” says Julian Parkes. “But as a category 2 responder we must give people confidence that we can hit the ground running – or at least jogging – and continue to provide our vital, core services.” I

LEADING the way Recruitment and training of pilots is a top priority for the Port of London Authority, as cargo volumes recover after the recession and ship numbers are increasing once again on the river.

010 was a challenging year for the PLA’s pilotage team: “Having weathered what was a very difficult downturn in trade, we then saw a sudden upturn, with the resultant sudden rise in demand for pilots,” says marine pilotage manager Peter Steen. “So the message is, we are still recruiting pilots; we are looking forward to continued growth in the port, and we will be ready for it.” Getting the balance right is always tough – it takes at least four years to train a pilot to Class 1 status and clearly trade volumes can be far more volatile than that. “Maintaining the right level of pilot availability is a delicate balance; we can only grow in line with good predictions of trade,” says Peter Steen. “But we were able to maintain our recruitment of pilots and, therefore, numbers through the downturn, and we are now working with customers to get a prediction of where we think trade is going. The number of Class 1 pilots will now steadily grow as recruitment over the past few years flows into the system. We are also looking at the possibility of increasing our recruitment levels if we see that the current trade increase is sustainable.” Expert pilotage is at the centre of the PLA’s integrated package of marine services. At present the PLA has a team of 88 pilots; five of these are duty port controllers and 12 are river pilots, with specialist knowledge of the bridges, jetties, piers and tidal

36

THE PORT OF LONDON HANDBOOK 2011

Pilotage

characteristics of the upper Thames. The PLA’s pilots are called upon to guide some of the world’s largest ships to and from their berths – a job that requires not only ‘standard’ training and skills but also very detailed local knowledge and just plain experience. The Thames can be a fickle place and is most certainly not like anywhere else – pilots need to understand the estuary, river, terminals, tides, depths, currents and weather. The PLA pilots are there to support all activity on the Thames – and new challenges in the past year have included supporting the newly established estuary bunkering operations, working with the London Gateway dredgers, and training on the PLA’s pilotage simulator for future operations at the London Gateway. A key change has been adapting pilotage exemption certificate (PEC) requirements to be more responsive to new trades and patterns of trades while still ensuring safe operations, says Peter Steen. ”For example, the dredgers working for the London Gateway development do not require a PEC that covers a traditional area. Because they are only working in just one limited area, we have adapted our PEC system to cover this.” In fact, the PLA has issued more PECs in the past year than it has for some time and at present there are 178 active PECs. Under new pilotage directions, all those applying for PECs

Simulator - never the same First installed at Gravesend eight years ago, the PLA’s state-of-the-art ship bridge manoeuvring simulator continues to prove invaluable in training and planning of pilotage work, as well as in simulating proposed new berths or berth alterations for customers. And just like the river and its operations, the simulator continues to evolve. The latest upgrade has added azipod controls, for example. “We increasingly see the simulator used extensively for training third parties in emergency response as well as manoeuvring – we can assess very easily how anyone might react to a given situation,” noted Peter Steen. The PLA’s pilot training programme also includes marine resource management (MRM) courses, which focus on

integrating with the bridge team of a ship. Overall, the pilotage training programme has been revised with pilots’ authorisations now subject to revalidation to comply with the requirements of the Port Marine Safety Code. It is now the case that a pilot who has not had a formal examination or assessment for more than five years will have to go through the revalidation process. “The revalidation process looks at the Pilot’s experience and training record,” says Peter Steen. “It’s a form of Continuous Professional Development, we consider any problems or training needs that a pilot might have and see how we can address those. If we and the pilot are happy that there are no training gaps and that they are clearly up to date and aware of the latest developments in pilotage and the port then the authorisation is revalidated.”

Shakes and ladders There are international standards for ships’ pilot ladders – but judging by the state of some of them, you wouldn’t know. “Ships don’t always comply with the pilot ladder standards – ladders can be incorrectly rigged, or have bits and pieces missing, bringing significant danger for pilots boarding or departing ships out at sea,” says Peter Steen. Any issues with ‘dodgy’ ladders are included in the pilot’s individual report after a pilotage act and that is vital for the

38

THE PORT OF LONDON HANDBOOK 2011

Pilotage

safety of those that follow. “A pilot has to report if a ladder isn’t satisfactory and the master has to sign the form. And we make sure we are very responsive if there is an issue – we don’t want to leave a faulty ladder for the pilot in the next port,” says Peter Steen.

must now sit an examination to demonstrate their skills and knowledge of the river; those in charge of ships more than 160 metres long also have to spend time in the PLA’s simulator.

...if there’s something in the way in the river, they really do need to know.

IN THE BOOK PISCES, the Port Information System for Coordinating End-to-End Services, has been adapted to enable easier automated booking of pilots. This has led to a flow of more accurate information and also enabled the PLA to allocate its pilots even more efficiently. “Automated booking enables us to make the best use of the resources we have,” says Peter Steen. “There is currently a mix of computer-generated information and manual – and we are trying to automate as much of the process as possible. However, this will never do away with the human interface. Pilotage allocation is still a job for coordinators – but the general idea is to give them a better overall view of shipping and pilot availability, to enable them to do their jobs more efficiently.” That, he explains, is a matter of looking at all angles and finding the best solution according to the most up-to-date information regarding vessel position and timings and which pilots are available where. The PLA is working on a computer program that will support pilotage coordination and pilot requirement predictions. The first step – transferring pilot information to the established port information system, POLARIS – has been completed, meaning that ship and pilotage information are now on the same database.

BETTER INFORMATION, BETTER SAFETY Getting the message across has always been vital for the pilotage team – after all, if there’s something in the way in the river, they really do need to know. However, thanks to new technology the pilotage department is actually holding fewer meetings. Instead it has opened up an electronic forum for all pilots to consult on navigation and other issues. “This has delivered real efficiencies and is contributing to even greater safety,” says Peter Steen. Meanwhile, trials are progressing with pilots’ portable units (PPU); these are basically small computers that carry electronic charts and can also feature a traffic image from VTS with details of other ships in the vicinity, to improve safety management and navigation. This could enable the PLA to feed through live tidal, wind and shipping movement data directly to the PPU – information that is currently only available as historic data or is sent by VHF broadcast. “We are still considering the best solution regarding portable units,” says Peter Steen. “In the meantime, we are training all the pilots on the use of ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System) on ships.

GREEN is the colour, partnership is the aim

B

eing green is far more than a colour-wash for the Port of London Authority – environmental commitment is strongly entrenched, and at the heart of all of its activities. In the past year, the PLA has taken a fresh look at its green agenda and the result has been a restructuring to create a ‘holistic’ approach to the subject. Whereas in the past land-side and marine-side environmental issues were handled by separate teams, now all environmental topics come under one team, headed by Nicola Jenkins. “Port users or others with queries often had to talk to two different people before. Now there is one department dealing with all the questions and concerns,” she says. “This approach recognises that environmental issues don’t just stop when you get to the jetty. It is important that we concentrate on both sides; we must ensure we are doing what we should be doing, and making ourselves as green as possible.” Doing the right thing environmentally has always required something of a balancing act – and that’s the case even more since recent legislation designated several new Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) in the outer Thames estuary. “With any project coming in, we have to look at things in a whole different way, and carry out even more detailed assessments on the impact,”

40

THE PORT OF LONDON HANDBOOK 2011

Environmental

says Nicola Jenkins. “We are operating a commercial port within a highly environmentally designated area – and getting the balance is crucial.” For example, she says, the environmental team has been closely involved in the new estuary bunkering project; detailed assessments were carried out in advance of operations starting, and monitoring will continue. The PLA is working very closely with Thames Water on the Tideway Tunnel project, ensuring that work at specific sites can be carried out with least impact to the river and its surroundings. And the environmental team has had a huge input into the London Gateway project, working closely with DP World in the creation of new intertidal mud flats to replace habitat affected by the development and advising on the environmental aspects of dredging in particular. This includes monitoring water quality data and analysing sediment in the water to ensure the impact of the dredgers is minimised. Stakeholder commitment and consultation is crucial across the board, says Nicola Jenkins. “Talking and working with stakeholders is key to all we do. It ensures we make the most of the collective experience of people along the river to achieve the best results.”

Environmental certification THE PERFECT FRAMEWORK Two years ago, the PLA signed a unique Partnership Agreement with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). This was watched with interest by many ports, not least because of traditional conflict between the ports industry and the RSPB over developments in the past. But the PLA has taken the ‘conservation, not conflict’ approach, believing that much more can be achieved by working together. Together the PLA and RSPB developed a detailed Conservation Management Framework for the Thames. This framework is now being revised and updated to ensure it remains relevant as operations and situations develop. “We continue to work with the RSPB on all projects, including the London Gateway and the estuary bunkering project, and are finding this extremely useful,” says Nicola Jenkins. “The RSPB is very supportive. If we are planning any development at the conservation sites we own, the RSPB is involved from the beginning.” And that is the kind of relationship the PLA is trying to set up with all the main regulators, setting up regular meetings with bodies such as the Environment Agency to discuss all issues on the river. “It isn’t just legislation that drives you to do the right things for the environment,” she says. “Of course legislation is a key element, but if you just based everything on that you could meet all sorts of problems. We are proactive in our approach to the environment, working to go ‘beyond compliance’ with the legislative minimum. The CMF work with the RSPB is one example of how we do this.” The Thames is not only home to the UK’s second largest port – it also provides a diverse range of habitats supporting more than 50 species of waterfowl, including 12 that are internationally important, and it welcomes up to 300,000 over-wintering birds each year. The PLA continues to balance the needs of birds, fish, wildlife and plant life with those of commercial shipping, leisure boats and other recreational uses. I

The Port of London Authority holds the certifications ISO 9001 for quality, ISO 14001 for environmental commitment, and OHSAS 18001 for health & safety standards. It’s easy to take this for granted – but as Nicola Jenkins puts it: “All three depend on demonstrating continuous improvement in performance. That is important to us and our customers.” London is also an EcoPort – holding the European EcoPorts Port Environmental Review System (PERS) certificate, and Nicola Jenkins is the UK ports representative on environmental matters at ESPO, the European Sea Ports Organisation. The PLA wants to lead by example in its environmental commitment. Naturally it ticks the boxes on topics such as recycling paper (and using less of it) or reminding people to switch off the lights in the office. At Denton Wharf, the jetty has been refurbished to create a more environmentally sensitive facility, including a drainage interception system; the offices onsite feature a rain harvesting system and intelligent lighting. “Our commitment even stretches to where we buy our stationery and lighting, and re-using office furniture. We continue to encourage staff to ‘think green’.” The ‘green’ theme goes much further than offices, to include Allhallows estate and Cliffe conservation sites, farmland at the Oikos terminal on Canvey Island, and the Rainham landfill site. The PLA’s radar stations are located on substantial patches of land where birds and wildlife must be considered. “The environment is one of the key topics we take into consideration when we make decisions on any project,” says Nicola Jenkins. “Perhaps a few years ago it would have been left until the end and then people tried to fit things in. But if you consider the environment right at the beginning, you can make major and often very practical improvements.”

ore than 10,000 large ships make their way into and out of London, the UK’s second busiest port. It is the Port of London Authority’s responsibility to oversee all shipping movements throughout 400 square miles of estuary and tidal river and ensure that those vessels move promptly, efficiently and safely to and from their destinations. At the centre of this function is the PLA’s Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) system, which keeps everything coordinated and moving on the river. Greater certainty, greater reliability and – most importantly – a more straightforward presentation and functionality will all be part of the package when a major upgrade of the Port of London Authority’s VTS is complete. The upgrade, being carried out in partnership with long-term supplier Sofrelog, will have a significant impact, says VTS manager Barry Goldman. “Although from the hardware point of view it may not look so different, the on screen presentation is now much more comprehensive,” he says. “Sofrelog has incorporated major developments in technology and produced a product that is much more user-friendly and more intuitive for VTS operators. “We have done extensive tests and we are delighted with the results. This

may look superficial, but it is a big change.” To avoid any potential ‘glitches’ and ensure a perfectly smooth transition, VTS is moving on to the new system in small steps which won’t even be evident to customers. At the same time, there will be extensive training for all those in the VTS team – 20 operators, five duty officers and 15 duty port controllers. The flexibility and future-proofing built into the PLA’s two Port Control Centres at Gravesend and Woolwich at the last upgrade has paid dividends in implementing this one. “This flexibility was built in to allow us to move functions around and put different tasks in different areas. We are reaping the benefits because we can actually have both old and new systems up and running simultaneously while we migrate one desk at a time to the new system,” says Barry Goldman. In recent months the Port Control Centre at Woolwich (Thames Barrier) has been through a redesign in terms of layout; staff moved into the centre’s emergency management room while the new layout was put in place. The operations room has been reconfigured to create a fully integrated layout with separate space for the Coastguard, which is co-located there. So what changes does the new Sofrelog system bring?

Thames AIS The unique Thames AIS (Automatic Identification System) was developed in direct response to recommendations from the Thames Safety Inquiry and became mandatory for all passenger boats, tugs and commercial vessels over 50 gt throughout Central London in 2007. This was a major step forward for safety on the river and continues to be a big success story. Now the PLA is proposing to extend the Thames AIS requirement for passenger boats, to include the stretch of the river from Victoria Deep Water Terminal as far as Denton. In fact, the Tilbury-Gravesend ferry, which is outside the present Thames AIS area, has been using the system since its inception even though the operator was not obliged to. “There is recognition of how effective Thames AIS has been there, and we want to make sure that anyone expanding passenger services downriver will do the same thing,” says Barry Goldman. “An important reason for extending Thames AIS is to allow for any expansion of passenger services in 2012, with all the Olympic Games and other events going on. Thames AIS has proved to be enormously successful. As well as safety, it is an extension of security, too.” AIS was already compulsory for larger commercial shipping when the bespoke Thames AIS system was introduced for smaller craft – specially created to monitor vessels upriver, where radar is relatively ineffective because of buildings and bridges. The system features a geographical display and requires electronic reporting of passenger numbers on board. Crucially, it enables masters and skippers to be much more aware of other vessels in their immediate area.

THE PORT OF LONDON HANDBOOK 2011

VTS

says the focus has been on simplicity in operating and managing. Key elements include incorporating automatic control of CCTV and modernising the interface and user controls. Resilience remains a priority; all VTS functions, as well as the PLA’s port management information system, POLARIS, can be switched from the main Port Control Centre to the centre at Woolwich, or the other way round. The value of this capability has already been demonstrated when the Woolwich centre lost all power on two occasions. “I don’t think you will find many other ports with the resilience we have here; we have taken advantage of the need for two Port Control Centres to provide a robust business continuity capability,” says Barry Goldman. Resilience and total reliability will be even more crucial when the demands of 2012 – notably the Olympic Games and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee – arrive. The VTS team will play a central role in ensuring security and safety on the Thames in what will be a very busy year.

A MESSAGE FOR YOU … PISCES STYLE How do you like to receive your messages? By telex, fax, phone, e-mail? Or maybe even a scribbled note? Before PISCES, the team organising pilotage and other services for ships arriving at and leaving the Port of London had long been used to all and any of the above. With such a mix and match of informality and lack of certainty, the system laid itself open to error through customers altering arrangements at the drop of a hat, employing a bit of guesswork – or changing their minds altogether and cancelling the booking at the last minute. Hence the development of the PLA’s Port Information System for Coordinating End-to-End Services. Launched in 2009, PISCES came in with a memorable label – ‘One

Version of the Truth’. The on-line information input system was introduced on the basis that clear information, right first time, helps the PLA to provide the best service to port users. Agents log on to the PLA website, view current data, enter vessel details, pilot requirements, hazardous goods data and other information, and then submit a request. Efforts to get the ‘efficiency’ message across are paying off: by the end of 2010, an estimated 65% of all shipping movements were being notified through PISCES, and the number is continuing to grow. Meanwhile, PISCES has been integrated into the VTS, and refinements to the system have continued. “On-line booking was originally developed purely to achieve greater efficiency on pilotage,” says Barry Goldman. “The next process is to develop PISCES so we can make much more use of it as a total port booking system.” In fact, new EU rules and regulations on vessel traffic monitoring and systems are likely to push agents in this direction as it becomes compulsory for vessels carrying dangerous or polluting goods to report the details electronically which will require them to book through a system such as PISCES. “The overall process of our PISCES development is to broaden the availability of ‘one version of the truth’,” says Barry Goldman. “We have already made progress in the past year by linking into the Svitzer towage website, so tug data is automatically fed into VTS. “We want to be able to draw all the various resources together and have PISCES really accepted as the website of best choice. We are doing as much as we can to make this the simplest option for agents.” Some, of course, continue to provide data in their ‘traditional’ way; here, the PLA continues to remind them that PISCES delivers real benefits all round!

While clearly supporting environmentally friendly energy projects, the PLA continues to monitor closely the effects on shipping and its own operations of the burgeoning offshore wind farm developments in its vicinity. Construction of the massive London Array wind farm is due to start in March 2011 and the PLA has been working closely with the developers to ensure safety of navigation during construction and once it is fully operational. The Thanet offshore windfarm has been established at the Eastern approaches to the port, close to the North East Spit pilot boarding and landing area. Special measures have had to be taken to help manage the traffic in this busy area including restrictions to ensure ships anchor clear of pilotage operations." Meanwhile Gunfleet Sands wind farm was completed in 2010 but likely to grow. “We are in discussion with the Gunfleet Sands developers about plans for adding demonstration bigger turbines,” says the PLA’s harbourmaster (lower), Roy Stanbrook. “We need to ensure access to the River Crouch, particularly for the spoil being barged out from the Crossrail project.” There are still issues and concerns about navigation, he adds. “One of the things we identified in the early days was interaction between ships’ radars and wind farms. Now we are getting wind farms in close proximity to each other, we are trying to determine what the cumulative effect could be on ships’ radars of these multiple wind farms in a relatively small area.”

A CLOSE WATCH A significant advancement for the VTS sector in recent months has been the development for the commercial market of solid state coherent radars, which offer improved radar performance in small target detection and accuracy. This technology was previously only used for military applications but is now being offered by some of the major radar suppliers at prices that are becoming affordable for commercial use. The PLA has already carried out trials on these solid state radars. “The indications are very favourable that discrimination and the ability to detect smaller targets should be vastly improved,” says Barry Goldman. “We are looking seriously at introducing this new generation of radars to replace our existing ones on a progressive basis. There will be slightly higher capital costs compared to the traditional magnetron radars, but this promises to be balanced out by much lower through-life costs.” The PLA already has a network of 16 radars overseeing the river and estuary and, in a unique agreement with the developers of the London Array offshore wind farm, two further radars are being installed to ensure safety of navigation around the newly installed wind turbines. In addition, the London Array developer is to part-fund additional personnel within the PLA’s VTS team, in recognition that greater oversight by VTS will be required because of the wind farm’s presence. This has enabled the PLA to introduce a third person into each VTS watch at Gravesend to provide a better overview of river and estuary. I VTS

water is so heavy with sediment. But thanks to the experts in its hydrographic department, the PLA has an incredibly clear vision of the seabed and all that happens above it. What is the team’s role? Essentially, to survey the full extent of the tidal Thames under the jurisdiction of the Port of London Authority – that’s a 95-mile stretch of tidal river, encompassing 400 square miles of river and sea bed. The depth of water and tidal heights and flows must be accurately measured and this information clearly presented, in order to ensure that the Thames is a safe waterway for all users. In such a dynamic environment, no assumptions can ever be made. Tidal forces and currents can create sediment build-up very quickly, so updated information is vital. And that’s quite apart from any other unexpected obstacles to a safe passage – from things that fall off ships to a sudden ‘high spot’ on the riverbed swirled up by a storm. The PLA has one of the bestresourced hydrographic departments in the UK and its skills are in demand not only within the Thames for the PLA’s own requirements but also on a commercial basis; the hydrographic services are provided to a variety of customers at ‘home’ and further afield. Of course, PLA’s statutory responsibilities always come first and the team surveys the whole river from bank to bank on a rolling programme over five to 15 years, depending on the particular area. A further 90 survey areas subject to greater change and

All of the information gathered is accepted and incorporated on to the UK Admiralty paper and digital charts, as well as on to the PLA’s own charts and maps. In addition, the department monitors and controls 14 tide gauges strategically located along the Thames – work that is critical especially for larger, deeper ships relying on short tidal windows for access. The PLA’s daily tide predictions, published in a Tidal Booklet for the year, or on-line for five years hence, enable ship operators to plan their schedules according to the water depth available. The hydrographic team of 14 includes surveyors, a tidal manager, a Geographical Information System (GIS) manager, oceanographer and administration assistant. Vessel operations are supported by crew with specific surveying experience, drawn from the PLA’s marine services department. Substantial investment in hydrographic capability over the past few years has included the purchase of a £115,000 catamaran, the Galloper, which gives surveyors access to parts of the river too shallow for larger craft to reach. The 7.9 metre long vessel works alongside the survey vessels Verifier and Yantlet, and can be taken by road to carry out work at other ports. Galloper is fitted with the latest technology – a high-resolution multibeam echo sounder (MBES) which gives the capability to undertake highly accurate surveys of the riverbed and associated structures. Now the hydrographic team is

it’s a maƩer of people trialling a new type of technology – the use of laser beams to survey major structures above the water. The resultant laser images can be merged with bathymetric images to provide an incredibly detailed image of rigs and offshore structures, pipelines, bridges and other large structures, giving a clear picture above and below water. “There can be a risk of running aground when working in shallow water with multibeam; this laser technology takes that risk away in such situations,” says port hydrographer John Pinder. “We are carrying out trials before making a decision whether to invest in this technology.”

Information published by the hydrographic department to assist ships’ passage planning along the Thames includes tide tables, critical depths and hydrographic surveys. In the past year, the team has developed and launched an entirely new product – A2 charts in colour, produced at a scale specifically for navigation. A2 charts are now available covering the stretch of river all the way from Teddington to Woolwich, and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has already made the carriage of them mandatory for Class 5 (passenger) boats on the Thames, so that all reporting vessels on this stretch of the river must carry the new charts. “There was a definite call for these A2 charts,” says John Pinder. “They fill the gap between the large-scale PLA planning charts, which can be too large to fit into the wheelhouse of the vessels working upriver, and the present Admiralty charts, which are too small-scale.” A recent MAIB (Marine Accident Investigation Board) inquiry into an incident on another east coast port concluded that on the upper tidal reaches there were insufficient usable-scale charts available – but in fact the PLA was already working on its unique A2 charts. “We had already concluded that this development was important,” says John Pinder. “And printing technology has advanced to such a point where we are now able to print these in-house.”

Without doubt, the project that has kept the hydrographic team busiest in recent times is the London Gateway development. The PLA has been contracted to carry out the regional bathymetry for the whole area of the reclamation site, and as far out as Southend. “We are monitoring the whole area on a routine basis as part of the mitigation and compensation measures,” says John Pinder. “The dredging contractors working on deepening the approach channel for the London Gateway rely on us to measure and analyse whether they have indeed improved the depth significantly; they could dredge in the channel for ages and actually the critical depth might not change. They might get a lot of volume out but actually not create a uniform new depth for that part of the river.” This monitoring role is important for other customers, too; where dredging work has been done, the PLA can send in a team to verify that the required depth has indeed been achieved. “When a port area has got deeper, we can declare that. It is a very thorough system,” says John Pinder. “The contractors have to dredge to very tight criteria and we let them do their work – but when they finally get to the point where they believe they have dredged to the required limit, we will be the final arbiter for safety of navigation.” With regard to the London Gateway, the team also plays its part in a complex organisational structure monitoring environmental changes; it is essential to watch out for any effects the dredging might be having on areas that are not subject to the immediate dredging or reclamation, in case of silting up elsewhere.

COMMERCIAL WORK About a quarter of the hydrographic team’s work is commercially based, for a range of third party customers within the Thames and elsewhere. Clients range from police and security firms to port and terminal operations, diving and salvage operations, archaeologists, offshore contractors and the London Underground. Berth surveying is carried out on behalf of many terminal operators. For example, the PLA provides a regular service to Tilbury Power Station, giving operator RWE npower a clear picture of the rate of sediment build-up at the jetty, so that it can plan its dredging programme. “We provide a ‘dredging support’ service for many clients; rather than wondering what the depth is on their berth, they can monitor the build-up, so they can plan their dredging regime much more efficiently, based on what is going to happen,” says John Pinder. “We can also save valuable time and resources by surveying bridges and other structures where any scouring or damage may have taken place; diving is one way of examining such structures under water but, with our technology, we can find out in a few minutes what it might take divers several hours to establish. And what is more, we can come up with something viewable and measurable for the engineer.” Archaeologists can make use of the team’s services to designate and inspect wrecks: there are over 800 known wrecks in the River Thames, including several of historical importance. And in another important area, police, security firms and engineers call in the hydrographic experts to help with investigations. I

OCEANS of Experience PLA cadet goes to sea

ust as money must be spent on new equipment and facilities for future port operation and expansion, so investment must be made in people, in particular in encouraging and training new entrants into the sector. Over the years the PLA has clearly demonstrated its commitment to training – through a marine apprenticeship programme in the 1990s and, since then, by taking on marine trainees. The system moves away from the traditional concept that certain jobs ashore such as pilot or harbourmaster require the candidate to hold a master’s ticket and have long seagoing experience. Now, in an entirely new move, the PLA is supporting and sponsoring its first marine cadet through three years of training in Warsash Maritime Academy and at sea. Jack Daly has joined Trinity House’s Merchant Navy Scholarship Scheme as a deck cadet, and will work towards STCW (Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping) certification. The PLA will invest £50,000 in his training over the three-year period. Before starting his formal training, Jack spent six weeks with the PLA to gain experience and appreciation of what the organisation is and does. The shortage of seafarers internationally and, equally, the shortage of experienced mariners coming ashore to take up traditional follow-on jobs as pilots, harbourmasters or other departments, including harbour and marine jobs has been well documented. “We asked ourselves, could we do more to support maritime training in the round; in recent years there has been a general move towards promoting the maritime industry as a whole rather than particular sections of it,” says Julian

Marine Cadet

Parkes, the PLA’s harbour master (safety management system) and port security officer. “We discussed and came to an agreement with Trinity House, which operates a charity for training deck and engine cadets. We are providing a bursary to allow our cadet to do a foundation degree and STCW deck cadet training. This project is very much to demonstrate our support for the maritime industry.” There is no commitment on either side regarding employment at the end of Jack’s training. “But this gets him to sea. And after three, ten or 15 years, he may want to work for the PLA, as the organisation that started him out on his career.” The system moves away from the traditional concept that certain jobs ashore such as pilot or harbourmaster require the candidate to hold a master’s ticket and have long seagoing experience. “With national vocational qualifications in place and local knowledge, you can have a pilot that is not a master mariner,” says Julian Parkes. In its other training activities, the PLA took on its first marine trainee five years ago; under this scheme, entrants come in with a minimum A level requirement. The marine trainees spend two years working afloat with the PLA’s marine services and crews, and qualify for the national Boatmaster’s Licence. During that time they are also seconded to operations around the port, including police, port health, port services and VTS, eventually focusing on the area in which they hope to work full-time. “This system is designed to deliver PLA employees with marine qualifications and experience who understand the marine side, with potential as future marine managers” says Julian Parkes.

As well as giving essential support to port and PLA operations, these services are also available to clients on a commercial basis, and they are increasingly in demand. The PLA’s Marine Services are based at Denton Wharf, near Gravesend. Here the PLA’s fleet of more than 40 vessels, including the purpose-built salvage vessels Hookness and Crossness, and the driftwood craft Driftwood II and Driftwood III, are maintained. Major investment completed at Denton in 2010 included resurfacing and refurbishment work, to create more operational and storage space and hence increase the capacity of the jetty. The jetty is equipped with a 40-tonne crane and 70-tonne boat lift; commercial vessels including dredgers, cabin cruisers, barges, workboats and passenger vessels are regularly lifted out of the water at Denton Wharf for survey, maintenance and repair works. An important addition to Denton’s facilities has been a purpose-built, electronically controlled boat transporter, 40 feet long and 15 feet wide, which can move vessels of up to 40 tonnes in weight.

Denton Wharf and, earlier in the London Gateway project, the jetty was used for loading out sheet piling, piling hammers and other equipment.

AIDS TO NAVIGATION More than 60 permanent aids to navigation, including floating buoys are maintained by the PLA's Marine Services operation. The team also installs and maintains temporary buoys to mark obstructions or hazards in the river, and lays temporary markings for events such as the University Boat Race. On top of this, the team is responsible for the inspection and maintenance of more than 230 PLA moorings, from the Central London Cruise Moorings to the small upriver boat moorings, and the inspection and upkeep of tide gauges.

THE BIG CLEAN-UP Bicycles, shopping trolleys, traffic cones and the full range of general rubbish are all pulled from the River Thames on a very regular basis. Every year the PLA’s driftwood crews remove about 450-500 tonnes of rubbish from the river, using the specialist collection craft Driftwood II and Driftwood III, which are permanently employed in rubbish clearance work. As part of the clean-up regime, the teams regularly

empty nine passive driftwood collectors (PDCs) strategically placed along the river. Recent years have seen a major improvement in the cleanliness of the Thames, including in terms of water quality and reducing rubbish in the river. The PLA works closely with the environmental charity Thames21, supporting its work in foreshore clean-ups along the river.

Managed by the PLA and based at Denton Wharf, TOSCA is on 24/7 standby, ready to respond anywhere between Tower Bridge and Sea Reach 1. The association is funded by the Thames terminals handling oil and oil products. It has two purpose-built craft, each designed to collect and/or contain oil in the first critical hours after a spillage. I

TILBURY: The perfect ingredients; the perfect mix.

A

perfect location, unrivalled cargo diversity and excellent facilities are all critical assets in the Port of Tilbury’s successful offering. And as managing director Perry Glading puts it, top-quality service goes without saying. But Tilbury’s success is also being further developed and built on modal choice, a full range of portcentric and ‘green’ options, proactive networking and creative thinking. A common theme of the recent economic downturn has been shippers’ willingness to take a fresh look at their logistics and supply chains – and that, says Perry Glading, has led to a renewed focus on what Tilbury can offer. “People are definitely looking at streamlining their supply chains,” he says. “They look at a map of the UK and see a supply chain that looks like knitting – and they want things simplified. The economic crisis has led people to be smarter and question why they are doing things in an overcomplicated way.” Tilbury prides itself in leading the drive to be ‘green’, especially as it is on the doorstep of the UK’s biggest consumer market. Its position enables retailers, shippers and logistics operators to take unnecessary haulage off the roads and develop environmentally friendly supply chain solutions that are efficient and cost-effective too. “London and the South East are still at the heart of everything and still the most important place in terms of the UK population; people are saying let’s cut out those wasted journeys and bring our goods to the ports closest to the centres of population,” says Perry Glading. Tilbury offers deepsea and shortsea, containerised and bulk, conventional and roll-on, roll-off; and it offers the options of road, rail and inland waterway, all adding up to the choices shippers are looking for.

58

THE PORT OF LONDON HANDBOOK 2011

Port of Tilbury

The whole portcentric concept is coming together in various different guises, and the port itself is getting increasingly involved in the planning. “We are focusing on an even greater level of engagement with agents, shipping lines and other aspects of the supply chain, and our networking efforts are leading to an increased interest in, and use of, Tilbury,” says Perry Glading. Tilbury’s portcentric offering has received a major boost thanks to the acquisition of an additional 65 acres outside the port boundaries. Here, the plans are to develop a total 900,000 square feet of mixed-use warehousing and also provide an additional 550 truck parking spaces. To put this in context, 900,000 sq ft is 20% of the current warehousing available within the port and the development could create 1,500 additional jobs. “There is a real gap in the market in the South East for available warehousing; the gap is for 50,000 to 150,000 sq ft,” says Perry Glading. “We have household names – big retailers – interested in this. It creates a fantastic opportunity and will raise Tilbury’s profile.” The new warehousing will be specifically designed, tailored and built to meet individual needs and orders, in a range of heights up to a maximum 11 metres, and Tilbury expects the majority of these to be built and occupied very quickly, including by third-party and fourth-party logistics providers. A large amount of the new warehousing is likely to be associated with foodstuffs, and it will include specialist chill stores; other tenants are expected to be bringing in drinks and fast-moving consumer goods. An important advantage at Tilbury is its wide range of services, both geographically and by cargo type;

importers are able to use the port as a hub to consolidate a wide range of products, shipped in containers, ro-ro or bulk form and from a myriad of countries of origin. Like all ports, Tilbury took a knock from the economic downturn – but in 2010 volumes bounced back to pre-crisis levels, with an increase of about 9% overall to 13.5 million tonnes. Bulk cargoes were particularly strong, including grain, animal feeds, salt, biomass, fertiliser, cement and aggregates. Forest products, deepsea containers and ro-ro volumes all showed strong growth. And there’s more … “In addition to the volumes that come across the quay, we also have about 1.5 million tonnes of cargo coming through the ‘front gate’ as part of customers’ consolidation work,” says Perry Glading. The port has 125 tenants, giving long-term security of tenure and revenue – a very strong and diverse base on which to build. Plans for a new 60 MW biomass power station are moving ahead, and the port also expects to start work on its own wind turbines in 2011. The Port of Tilbury, which celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2011, was recently described by a commercial property agency as ‘the South East and London’s best kept secret’. It has to be said: if Tilbury can achieve so much and still remain a ‘secret’, just imagine what might be achieved if the secret got out. The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) has recognised Tilbury’s excellent hub status with its decision to take 500,000 sq ft of warehousing at the port and base its logistics headquarters there from 2011 onwards. “This means that the port and our customers can look forward to assisting in creating the ‘Greenest Games’ in modern times by bringing products by ship – the most environmentally friendly mode of transport – as close as possible to the Olympic site, showcasing our role in the logistics supply chain,” says Perry Glading. “We are also working to provide waterborne and rail connections to add to the sustainable transport options.” LOCOG’s presence at Tilbury could generate up to 2 million tonnes of additional cargo through the port, with the opportunity for a good proportion of that to reach its final destination by barge. An important area of expansion for Tilbury in recent times has been its links to Iberia. MacAndrews and Samskip have built strong services into Tilbury and the share of Iberia-UK cargo carried by sea continues to increase.

Operators say their shipping links can outperform long-haul trucks on a combination of price, reliability and transit time. “Our Iberia services now form a fundamentally important route into the UK,” says Perry Glading. MacAndrews, which introduced a second weekly call in partnership with Samskip on its Bilbao-Tilbury service in mid 2010, says a number of factors are encouraging shippers to choose the intermodal seaborne option – including five times less CO2 emissions per tonne kilometre; the European Working Time Directive, which restricts drivers’ hours; various weekend, night-time and public holiday driving bans affecting trucks as they drive across Europe; and traffic congestion leading to schedule unreliability. Supermarkets are seeking ‘greener’ and less polluting solutions for moving their products, according to MacAndrews managing director Geoffrey Smith, who says the reefer sector will offer the largest opportunities for the line over the next decade. MacAndrews’ parent, CMA CGM is investing in 45-ft reefer boxes to develop this business. The deepsea container operations of Tilbury Container Services (TCS) are complemented by the Port of Tilbury’s own in-dock Short Sea Container Terminal, serving the European market. Samskip and UCI, with their services into Europe, remain the major players at SSCT. In 2010 they were joined by Russian specialist Delta Shipping Lines, which launched a new weekly container service linking Tilbury with St Petersburg. After starting the service in February, Delta quickly replaced two 500 teu vessels on the route with two 900 teu ships, in response to an increase in volumes from the UK.

The facts Tilbury is a truly multimodal, multi-cargo hub, at the centre of a network of shortsea, deepsea, lo-lo and ro-ro, bulk and breakbulk shipping services. It has more than 30 operational berths, 16 independent terminals, 7.5 kilometres of quay, more than 500,000 square metres of warehousing, and significant storage space within a 325 hectare estate – with substantial room to expand port and logistics activities beyond the present boundary.

Automotive Hyundai Car UK continues to buck every trend, with sales rocketing in 2010 thanks to the scrappage scheme and also the increasing demand for its small cars. As a result, Hyundai car imports through Tilbury increased by at least 30% in 2010 to between 44,000 and 46,000. Hyundai imports the cars through a shared riverside ro-ro berth which handles vessels of up to 250 metres in length and 10.5 metres draft.

Delta carries door-to-door and quay-to-quay traffic on the service, which was launched as a ‘new gateway to Russia’. SSCT has 549 metres of quay with depth alongside of 9.7 metres.

RO-RO ROLLS FORWARD P&O Ferries set up its Tilbury-Zeebrugge freight service in 2007 and clearly hasn’t looked back since. At the time of writing, the service was expected to carry well over 120,000 ro-ro units in 2010 and discussions continue about expanding the service. “This route is a success story in otherwise rather gloomy economic times,” says Ronnie Daelman, P&O Ferries’ freight director. “We will do around 9,000 shipments more on the route in 2010 than we expected.” The route is served by the sisterships Norking and Norqueen, each with 145 units capacity and carrying up to 12 drivers, operating a total 10 sailings a week. “We can add an extra sailing, so we’re not capacity constrained yet – but we are starting to think about additional ship capacity and are talking with the Port of Tilbury about the possibilities for expansion,” says Ronnie Daelman. “We are seeing materials for the Olympic construction site going through but general cargo is also growing and it is extremely general – everything from white goods to railway rolling stock. Being predominantly unaccompanied traffic, Tilbury is all about convenience for London and the M25 when dropping or collecting loads.”

FOREST PRODUCTS Tilbury is the UK’s leading port for forest products, handling everything from giant reels of newsprint to plywood and panel products. The port’s traditional strength was in handling breakbulk forest products shipments. Today, forest products are shipped both breakbulk and in containers – and, thanks to its diverse capabilities and the facilities of Tilbury Container Services and the Short Sea Container Terminal, the port is able to handle

62

Port of Tilbury

both with equal efficiency. Plywood and timber are major imports through Tilbury with a wide range of customers using the port as their distribution hub for the South East and beyond. Major operators at Tilbury include Altripan, Caledonian Plywood, Finnforest, International Plywood, Lathams, MBM Forest Products, MLM, Stanton Grove, Travis Perkins and UPM Wood. Tilbury Plywood Freight Station, operated by Denholm Handling, offers devanning, storage, repacking and dispatch services within the port. In recent years the trend has been towards shipping plywood in containers – but a new service into Tilbury has turned the trend around. Westfal Larsen Shipping launched a new breakbulk service from Asia to Tilbury carrying mainly plywood and panel products. “The line picked up on issues people were having with container supply in Asia, and receivers have welcomed an additional breakbulk option,” says Perry Glading. “This development is important in that it gives shippers the choice of containers and breakbulk on all global trade routes.” Westfal operates one of the world’s most modern fleets of box-shaped open hatch gantry crane vessels; the service calls Tilbury every five to six weeks. Altripan, another conventional forest products customer at Tilbury, has expanded rapidly since launching its operations at the port three years ago. Last year cargo imported from Asia by Altripan was then re-exported to Europe via P&O Ferries’ service to Zeebrugge, underlining the hub-and-spoke opportunities presented by the Port of Tilbury. Tilbury’s highly automated Enterprise Distribution Centre was built at a cost of £38 million in 2005. It is the world’s first automated high bay in a port to be specifically built for paper and has the capacity to handle over 800,000 tonnes a year. The terminal and warehouse complex was designed around the unique Stora Enso Cargo Unit (SECU), which has a

maximum load of up to 85 tonnes, three times the payload capacity of a standard 40-foot ISO container. The SECUs, holding reels, palletised and sheet paper, arrive three times a week on DFDS Tor Line’s vessels from Gothenburg. DFDS vessels also carry third party import and export trailers, as well as containers (ro-ro), cars and tracked vehicles. Tilbury is strategically situated not only for Stora Enso haulage into the South East and Midlands of England but also to provide coverage of the whole of the UK market for Stora Enso, using a variety of distribution methods. EDC handles the jumbo newsprint reels used by customers such as News International and Prinovis. Investment at EDC continues. In 2010, this included the replacement of various lift trucks and the purchase of new Auramo paper clamps, including two bespoke clamps for News International’s reels. Interforest operates an 8.8 hectare paper terminal at 44 Berth in Tilbury, handling throughput of more than 550,000 tonnes a year. The terminal has a 230-metre quay with depth alongside of 11.6 metres, and 50,000 square metres of warehousing. Part of SCA Transforest, Interforest Terminals operates a network of strategically located forest products facilities in Europe, offering forwarding, stevedoring, warehousing, ships agency and administrative services. The Tilbury terminal handles the import of Swedish paper products via SCA Transforest’s specialist ro-ro vessels, which were purpose-built to carry cassettes. The vessels are 171 metres long with a beam of 28 metres can carry 165 cassettes each with a load capacity of 60 tonnes. The balance of throughput at Interforest London is third party business, with imports mainly from Scandinavia, France and North America, including office paper, pulp and kraftliner. SCA is heavily focused on the environment and received an EU Clean Marine Award for its low-emission logistics policy. The Interforest terminal at Tilbury has both ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 14001 (environmental) accreditation.

Stanton Grove’s Tilbury Terminal is the largest purpose-built forest products terminal in the South East of England – with 628,000 sq ft of modern warehousing, two deepsea ro-ro berths, a 30-tonne container gantry crane and a fleet of specialist dedicated plant. The terminal handles up to 750,000 tonnes of forest products annually.

BULKS Three major dry bulk specialists have their own stevedoring operations and long-term agreements with the Port of Tilbury – European Metal Recycling (EMR), handling scrap, CEMEX UK, and Stema Shipping (UK), which handles aggregates. CEMEX has a 1.2 million tonne capacity cement grinding and blending plant at the Port of Tilbury – the only cement plant in South East England. The primary product manufactured at the new facility is blended cement, which incorporates by-products from other industries to make cements for use in all types of concrete applications, including housing, hospitals, schools and roads. Blended cements enable every tonne of clinker to go further, lessening the overall impact of manufacture and delivering a more sustainable operation. The plant is situated directly on the quayside, with 11 metres water depth and the ability to handle ships up to 30,000 tonnes. Stema operates at 1 Berth, where it has 10.5 metres water

Work was completed in August 2010, and this is now the largest coastal aggregates quarry in the world. The company took delivery of three new self-discharging 32,000 dwt vessels in 2010. I

Grimaldi Grimaldi Line operates services into Tilbury from West Africa and South America, using multipurpose con-ro vessels. A wide variety of cargo is carried, including containers, ro-ro and project cargo. In 2009 Grimaldi signed a new long-term agreement with the Port of Tilbury to continue operating these services.

Grain & Animal Feedstuffs Tilbury Grain Terminal is one of the largest grain terminals in the UK, handling exports of wheat, barley, peas, beans and rapeseed, and imports of wheat and soya beans. The terminal accommodates panamax vessels at its outer berth, which has 12.5 metres depth, and its shoreside facilities include total storage capacity of 120,000 tonnes in 200 separate silos for product segregation. The terminal is accredited to handle wheat and organic products by the Organic Food Federation and has blending facilities and other processing options. The terminal is approved to handle combinable crops under TASSC code. Vessels are discharged at the terminal by continuous bucket unloaders and suction to the silos or direct to trucks – or both at the same time. Loading is carried out by conveyor with hold trimming equipment. Allied Mills and ADM Milling operate mills next to the terminal, and Glencore is the major exporter of wheat through the facility. The Port of Tilbury is also a major hub for the handling of animal feeds and agricultural bulks, which together with grain add up to more than 1.3 million tonnes a year.

Cruise Tilbury’s reputation as a cruise port continues to grow, and it is now handling up to 40 calls a year at its historic London International Cruise Terminal. The terminal is used for day calls by cruise ships as well as cruise turnrounds. With the London Olympics on the horizon, Tilbury is getting ready for an expected increase in cruise calls for 2012. “Our cruise successes are really putting Tilbury on the map in this sector,� says Perry Glading.

fter a difficult 2009, the deepsea container terminal saw volumes recovering well in 2010, with latest available figures suggesting a significant increase.

TCS took a lesser hit from the economic downturn than many other container ports, largely because it specialises in north-south trades and in high volumes of perishable goods. In fact, reefer boxes increased even during 2009, and there was further strong growth in this sector during 2010. “2010 was considerably better for us than 2009,” says TCS business development manager James Leeson. “There was a bit of a slow start to the year but then we saw a steady upturn in volumes. This was not dramatic growth but there is room for cautious optimism. We don’t expect a major surge in 2011 but are confident of another good year.” TCS, which is jointly owned by DP World, Associated British Ports and Forth Ports, has 600 metres of riverside quay with minimum depth of 13.5 metres and 575 metres of in-dock quay, with 10.7 metres depth. The largest reefer terminal in the UK, it has seen a 20% growth in reefer boxes since 2008, and reefer boxes now represent almost 20% of total throughput. The continuing trend to ship fresh produce in containers rather than the traditional reefer ships has clearly helped push volumes up; in response, TCS has increased the number of reefer ground slots at the terminal by another 100 to 1,400 in the past year. “And we are looking at further investment in reefer gantries,” says James Leeson. “We are determined to stay ahead of the game in reefers, which is what we are renowned for.” In the past decade TCS has

cranes, now in action on the riverside quay. As part of this investment, two older panamax cranes were refurbished and moved to the in-dock berth. This berth, which was the UK’s first container terminal, has also been completely refurbished. “This investment has not only provided state-of-the-art riverside quay cranes with 50.5 metres outreach, but it has boosted activity in-dock as well. With the refurbished panamax cranes we can now fully utilise all of our berths and we are starting to put big ships on the berth behind the lock gates,” says James Leeson. “This has been useful also in handling off-slot vessels, particularly in periods of bad weather. So the new cranes are paying their way already – twice over.” Meanwhile, TCS handled more containers on its existing rail facilities in 2010, with 20% of containers carried to and from the terminal by rail at some points in the year. As for commercial headlines, TCS was successful in securing three prestigious new services during 2010. Early in the year the SAECS consortium announced that it was restarting its peak season Reefer Express, a service from Cape Town focused on fresh produce. In the summer, CMA CGM announced the extension of its FEMEX (French European Med Express) service linking northern Europe to Greece and Turkey, adding calls at Tilbury and Lisbon, in

Portugal. This has brought an important link to the eastern Mediterranean and North Africa for TCS. Finally, in the autumn, Maersk announced that its SAMBA service, offering a direct link between the UK and East Coast South America, would concentrate all its UK calls at Tilbury. And there was more good news in 2011, with Delmas introducing its Nigeria Express Service in January. “We are really pleased about this service – it has long been our ambition to get into the West Africa trade,” says James Leeson. “This is our first link for a very long time with West Africa, and it is a fully containerised service.” The Nigeria Express, operating weekly, will be a mainly export-driven service, but it will also be bringing some reefer imports. “West Africa is another part of the world where there is a lot of potential for the future,” he adds. At present, more than half of TCS’s throughput is Latin America trade; 13% is Australia/New Zealand; and Africa and India are the terminal’s other two major trading countries. TCS responded to the economic downturn in three ways – first by taking a very robust look at costs and potential savings, second by taking a fresh look at operational and organisational efficiencies at the terminal, and third by focusing strongly on workforce training. Every member of the TCS workforce has now been

Easy Access TCS handles deep-sea container ships, and its deep water riverside berths, offering a minimum of 13.5 metres of water, are less than 15 minutes drive from London's M25 orbital motorway. It’s own on-berth railhead and adjacent Freightliner terminal offer dedicated rail services to all parts of the UK. TCS is strategically placed and equipped to provide a truly cost effective gateway to all corners of the UK.

Every member of the TCS workforce has now been through the DP World Institute one-week course ‘Fundamentals of Terminal Operations...’ through the DP World Institute one-week course ‘Fundamentals of Terminal Operations’ and there has been excellent feedback, says James Leeson. TCS has also worked hard on communication and employee engagement, again following DP World’s lead. “We operate in a service industry and are completely reliant on the skills of our workforce – and keeping them informed helps them to feel part of the overall picture. We have regular workforce briefings and ensure we keep everyone updated, so they know what is going on and how they fit in,” he says. As a result of all the recent investment, Tilbury Container Services now has capacity to handle up to one million teu a year. “And we will continue to invest in our staff and our equipment and facilities,” says James Leeson.

serving Ford’s Dagenham Jetty. CdMR Purfleet is on the north side of the Thames, close to the QEII Bridge and the M25 motorway. Just-in-time operations are becoming more and more important for its customers and the terminal focuses on providing the best vehicle turnround times possible in order to protect delivery schedules. The terminal has 800 trailer bays, along with spaces for 800 container/tank units and 10,000 cars. There are two working berths with one lay-by berth, all dredged to eight metres, an in-house engineering workshop and a transit shed. The terminal is rail linked, with its own sidings accommodating both container and car traffic.

Unit Loads

An on-site pre-delivery inspection (PDI) and vehicle enhancement centre provides a range of services, including the installation of navigation systems, security system upgrades, racking, painting, body kits and spoilers. Among the manufacturers using Purfleet to transport vehicles are General Motors (Vauxhall and Opel), BMW, Mercedes and Mazda. The Cobelfret Group offers services from both north and south sides of the river, benefiting from the natural synergies between its terminals at Purfleet and Dartford and flexibility in deploying vessels. Centralising bookings for both terminals is handled at a single office in Purfleet.

FORD MOTOR COMPANY About one million diesel engines are manufactured each year at Ford’s Dagenham Engine Plant. The vast majority are shipped from Ford’s Dagenham Jetty to the company’s vehicle assembly plants throughout Europe.

STEEL AND GENERAL G

KIERBECK Kierbeck Thames Limited, part of the Al-Tuwairqi Group, is well established as London’s primary reinforcement supplier and involved in many major construction projects in both the capital and the home counties. Kierbeck was awarded supply to the main Olympic Stadium project – a contract involving more than 7,000 tonnes – and it is well placed to build upon this success with the myriad of Olympics-

related development opportunities. Current throughput at Kierbeck Wharf, which is on Barking Creek, exceeds 50,000 tonnes. The facility handles imports from Latvia, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, the Czech Republic and Belarus via Lithuania. The arrival of this steel volume by sea has significantly reduced road congestion and pollution in the capital and serves to underpin Kierbeck’s commitment to the

SEACON TERMINALS Seacon Terminals celebrated 20 years at Tower Wharf in Northfleet in 2009. Volumes through Seacon Terminals’ facilities total about 700,000 tonnes a year, 400,000 tonnes of which is steel, with the balance divided between other metals and forest products. The company operates its own fleet of four 2,000 dwt ships handling cargoes mainly from northern European ports, with a particular emphasis on working with other covered berth facilities for steel and newsprint. An all-weather covered berth at the

environment – as demonstrated by its recent achievement of environmental British Standard 14001. Kierbeck continues to regard its berthing, unloading and onward waterway delivery facility as an essential part of its service offering, having particular appeal to clients taking an increasing interest in the whole supply chain process.

G Seacon Terminal in Northfleet allows the discharge of steel and paper under cover using up to 3 x 40 tonne gantry cranes. There is also a deepwater berth for vessels up to 50,000 dwt which is serviced by two 20-tonne mobile harbour cranes with direct transfer to the main storage areas. A total of 34,000 square metres of warehousing is available for all commodities, all serviced by gantry cranes or fork/clamp trucks. Seacon’s terminal is well located for national distribution of all products by

road and rail, whilst its close proximity to London’s press rooms and several major car producers put it in prime position to offer just-in-time call-offs at the shortest notice. Steel deliveries are made from both Seacon at Northfleet and Stanton Grove at Tilbury by Seacon Transport Ltd, which has a modern fleet of Scania tractors and more than 80 trailers capable of carrying all forms of steel, newsprint geared to the specific requirements of individual receivers, and general cargoes.

CALOR GAS The Calor Gas Terminal on Canvey Island handles a throughput of circa 90,000 tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) a year. The Canvey Terminal plays a major role in the success of Calor as the leading distributor of LPG. It has a dedicated jetty, which allows for refrigerated LPG imports from VLGCs of up to 200 metres loa, with the product being stored in in eight separate insulated tanks at -43 degrees centigrade.

LPG imports are distributed inland by road tanker and via a 17-kilometre LPG pipeline that connects the Canvey Terminal to Calor’s Coryton Filling Plant, giving an important environmental advantage by reducing the number of road tanker movements in and out of the terminal. Some LPG is re-exported by ship via pressurised LPG carriers to many European countries, ranging from the

Canary Islands to Poland. The Canvey Terminal helps to ensure the continuity of supply to Calor’s UK customers and its strategic location provides Calor with access to a network of worldwide LPG suppliers. The terminal also plays a key role in the international storage and supply strategies of Calor’s parent company, SHV, which operates LPG business throughout Europe, Asia and South America.

PETROPLUS Situated on the north bank of the river, Coryton Refinery has been part of the Thames landscape since 1953. On 31 May 2007, the refinery was acquired by Petroplus AG Holdings. Petroplus, the largest independent refiner and wholesaler of petroleum products in Europe, has a diverse portfolio with assets located in the UK, Belgium, France, Switzerland and Germany. Total throughput at the Coryton Refinery is 172,000 barrels of crude per day, with additional throughput capacity of up to 70,000 barrels per day of other feedstocks. Crude is shipped from all over the world, including the North Sea, Africa and Russia. Well over 600 ships called in 2008. Production is split roughly equally between gasoline and diesel; the majority is sold in the southern UK, with the exception of gasoline and fuel oil, some of which is exported to other regions. Coryton Refinery typically sells the majority of its output to oil majors, resellers, industry and retail petrol stations. Products are distributed via the refinery’s own on-site truck-loading rack, oil product pipeline and marine facilities. Petroplus believes not only that its activities should generate economic benefits and opportunities but that good

corporate citizenship and the handling of safety, health and environmental (SHE) issues are core responsibilities of the business. For this reason, there are sophisticated systems and projects onsite to ensure that the refinery protects the environment and works to the highest safety standards. Petroplus works with the PLA in the provision of TOSCA (the Thames Oil Spill Clearance Association),

which provides a rapid response in the event of any oil spill – just one example of the refinery’s work in environmental protection. The strategic relationship between the PLA and Petroplus at Coryton provides first-class management of risk. This includes working together on real-time simulation training for Coryton pilotage activities.

Coryton Refinery has been part of the Thames Landscape since 1953. Situated on the North Bank of the River, the Refinery is one of the largest in Europe.

Coryton believes its activities should not only generate economic benefits and opportunities but its conduct should be a source of positive influence. That’s the reason why sophisticated systems and projects exist on site to ensure that Coryton Refinery protects the environment and works to the highest safety standards. Its work with the Port of London Authority in the setting up of TOSCA (the Thames Oil Spill Clearance Association) - which provides a rapid response to an oil spill - is one example of the Refinery’s work in environmental protection. The strategic relationship between the PLA and Petroplus at Coryton provides first class management of risk. This includes working together on Real Time Simulation training for Coryton pilotage activities.

Aggregate Industries is a manufacturer of quarry products and heavy building materials. It supplies a wide range of products and services to the construction industry. Committed to sustainability, the company was voted on to the Sunday Times Best Green Companies list for the second time in 2009. Employing about 6,000 people in the UK, northern Europe and the Channel Islands, Aggregate Industries also became the first company in its sector to achieve the Carbon Trust Standard and the first to be certified to the BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing Framework standard across its whole business. This independent certification scheme assesses responsible sourcing policies and practices throughout the

London and the Thames Gateway areas, Aggregate Industries is ideally placed to serve the planned rapid growth in construction to 2012 and beyond. The Olympic Delivery Authority awarded the company two key contracts to supply the ready-mixed concrete needed for the construction of the Olympic Park, along with all aggregate materials. It is a well-established ready-mixed concrete supplier through its Brentford-based business, London Concrete. Aggregate Industries operates over 80 quarries across the UK, with major quarrying operations in Scotland, the East Midlands and Somerset, from which it moves construction aggregates to London by ship and rail. The company operates the world’s largest self-discharging

BRETT AGGREGATES More than a million tonnes of sea-dredged aggregates from specific areas of the North Sea, the mid-Channel and off the southern UK coast around the Isle of Wight are landed each year at Alpha Jetty, Brett Aggregates’ main terminal in the Port of London. Rail accounts for the onward transit of

G more than 40 per cent of Brett’s output from the terminal, with several trains departing every day. An on-site block-making plant utilises 25 per cent of the terminal’s throughput to produce a number of products for Brett Landscaping and Building Products. Additional aggregate is landed and stored

CEMEX UK MATERIALS CEMEX is a global building solutions company with leading positions in aggregates, cement and ready-mixed concrete. Its London terminals supply many major construction projects in south-east England. The company operates six wharves on the river, as well as a joint company operation with Hanson Aggregates, named Purfleet Aggregates, and supplies several of its concrete plants with cement by river barges that are loaded at Northfleet and Angerstein, reducing lorry deliveries into central London by an estimated 2,000 a year. Materials are supplied by barge to Cringle Wharf at Battersea and Comleys Wharf at Fulham for use in the onsite

concrete plants, as well as to other CEMEX customers along the river, while Northfleet Wharf and the new concrete plant at Angerstein Wharf handle imports of sea-dredged aggregates from CEMEX UK Marine. The CEMEX concrete products factory at Northfleet produces paver and concrete blocks. CEMEX has a 1.2 million tonne capacity cement grinding and blending plant at the Port of Tilbury – the only cement plant in South East England. The primary product manufactured at the new facility is blended cement, which incorporates by-products from other industries to make cements for use in all types of concrete applications, including

HANSON AGGREGATES Hanson operates three facilities on the Thames – a marine wharf and rail depot at Dagenham, a wharf and readymixed concrete plant at Victoria Deep Water Terminal (Greenwich) and a wharf and ready-mixed concrete plant at Wandsworth. Volumes of marine-dredged sand and gravel through the Dagenham wharf are expected to fall by some 20% in 2011 to around 1 million tonnes as the government’s spending cuts continue to impact on public sector construction projects. The outlook for the following two

years looks a little more optimistic, but no major upturn is anticipated. Rail is crucial to Hanson’s operations. Crushed rock from the Mendips is imported into the Dagenham terminal to feed the site’s two asphalt plants which make road surfacing materials for local roads, trunk routes and the motorway network. There is also a ready-mixed concrete plant on the site. Around 500,000 tonnes of marine-dredged sand and gravel is exported to depots at Acton, Brentford, Heathrow, Theale and Bow. From here it is transferred to

INDUSTRIAL CHEMICALS LTD. Industrial Chemicals Limited has operated in the Thurrock area since 1976 and purchased its 80-acre site at the former West Thurrock Power Station 13 years ago. The company employs over 250 people and handles in excess of one million tonnes of materials per annum, with sales of over 300,000 tonnes of finished materials and products. Industrial Chemicals operates 20 chemical manufacturing plants throughout the UK and supplies products to the detergent, paper, water treatment and chemical industries on a global basis. The company made major investments during 2010 at the West Thurrock

facility, mainly to accommodate the company’s “in-house” products but also to attract third-party cargoes to this prime location facility. Recent investments have included installing a Siwertell mobile screw unloader on the jetty for environmentally friendly discharge of bulk dry powder shipments. In addition, a KE Kranbau Eberswalde rail-mounted travelling quay crane was commissioned to handle bulk, general and container cargoes. The crane has a lift capacity of 48 tonnes at 16 metres, and 16 tonnes at 25 metres. The West Thurrock Jetty saw a significant increase in the volume of products handled across the jetty in 2010.

LAFARGE AGGREGATES & CONCRETE Lafarge Aggegates & Concrete operates several facilities along the Thames, including operations at Greenhithe, Thurrock and Belvedere, which between them distribute almost 1 million tonnes of aggregate throughout the area by road and rail. Lafarge’s wharves are a major source of the aggregates supplied for the M25 widening. Greenhithe processes sea-dredged sand and gravel for use in building projects across the region. The facility’s £1.5 million ship-to-shore conveyor won the Quarry Products Association’s Safety Award for Innovation in 2005, for a whole range of measures to minimise operational hazards. This includes a clever system for ensuring that maintenance can be conducted safely. Greenhithe and Belvedere also have ready-mix concrete plants. Lafarge’s distribution hub at West Thurrock combines a deepwater wharf with rail-loading facilities and excellent access to the local road network. The wharf allows ships to discharge at all

Throughputs in 2009 and 2010 were 100,000 tonnes and 150,000 tonnes respectively, representing an extremely impressive increase of 50% in trade. The signs are even more promising for 2011, with several new customers expressing an interest in using the facility. Situated only two miles from Junction 30/31 of the M25 and also close to the Dartford Crossing, with deep water and sufficient storage land, the facility offers an ideal location for serving end-markets both north and south of the Thames. Industrial Chemicals has an on-site approved weighbridge as well as 24/7 security operations across the whole site.

LAFARGE CEMENT UK Lafarge Cement UK has invested significantly at its two terminals on the Thames, at Northfleet and West Thurrock. The Northfleet site is in the process of complete regeneration following demolition work in 2010. The masterplan for the site envisages the creation of a new riverside neighbourhood quarter for Northfleet with good links to the community around the site and delivering over a 1,000 new jobs, as well as encouraging distribution of aggregates by rail. The £10 million cement import terminal has annual handling capacity of

over 500,000 tonnes. Bulk powder is transported to the terminal by ship from other parts of the Lafarge European network. The 104-acre terminal has three enclosed storage cells, each with 17,000 tonnes capacity, and six bulk loading points, each with its own weighbridge, one of which can be used for PFA. Lafarge has also invested heavily at its West Thurrock site, spending over £3 million to upgrade the bulk loading and discharge facilities and rail sidings, and another £3 million on facilities to pack cement in plastic for its unique

STEMA SHIPPING (UK) LTD. Stema has three operations on the Thames handling sand, gravel and aggregates on the Thames – at Red Lion Wharf in Northfleet, at Victoria Deep, Greenwich, and at the Port of Tilbury. Red Lion Wharf, which is owned by Stema, has a 220-metre jetty with depth alongside of 7 metres and six acres of open storage for imported aggregates. About 750,000 tonnes of sand, gravel and

aggregates from Stema’s own quarries in Norway, and sand from Denmark, are imported through this facility. Of this, about 150,000 tonnes goes back out by barge – and the company is looking at ways of increasing this. At Tilbury, Stema operates at 1 Berth, where it has 10.5 metres water depth and a 2.75 acre site. At present it handles about 300,000 tonnes at Tilbury.

TARMAC Tarmac Quarry Materials has three terminals on the Thames, at Charlton and Erith. Murphy’s Wharf in Charlton is ideally placed to supply east and central London, being located on the south side of the River Thames near the Blackwall Tunnel. It is believed to be the largest marine aggregate terminal in Europe in terms of output, regularly producing in excess of 1.8 million tonnes per year in recent years, although the economic slowdown saw volumes drop to 850,000 tonnes in 2010. Nearly half of all material sold from the facility is transported to customers by

Mastercrete product. In 2010 the site achieved a significant production milestone - it exceeded 20 million bags of Mastercrete in plastic in just over three years. More than £1 million was spent on new paper packaging facilities and a palletiser at the West Thurrock terminal in 2008. In the same year, Lafarge completed a £15 million investment programme in the rail infrastructure at its Hope Works, in Derbyshire, providing capacity for more than 1 million tonnes to be transported to the South East by train.

T & L SUGARS T & L Sugars Thames Refinery at Silvertown is one of the largest cane sugar refineries in the world. The 13.6 hectare site processes 160 tonnes of raw sugar an hour, with an annual output of up to 1 million tonnes. There is bulk storage for 65,000 tonnes, together with 2,000 tonnes of storage capacity for palletised refined sugar for export. The 161-metre raw sugar jetty has a minimum depth of 10 metres at low water and receives approximately 50 vessels each year in a range of sizes from 4,000 to 56,000 dwt. Raw sugar is imported by Tate & Lyle from a variety of Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Least Developed Countries (LDC) and Most Favoured Nations (MFN)

suppliers which are granted preferential access to the European Union, together with sugar from world market suppliers such as Brazil. Refined sugar is transported directly to domestic retail and industrial buyers from the site, either packed or as bulk dry and liquid products, or it is exported by ship or container worldwide. The 48-metre export jetty can handle vessels of more than 3,000 dwt. A new crane for this jetty is currently being commissioned. The raw sugar jetty is equipped with two cranes, each with a capacity of 16 tonnes, installed in 2007 at a cost of £6 million. These, together with current stevedoring arrangements, ensure that raw sugar discharge at the refinery is a

world-class operation. T & L has announced its intention to switch all of its retail sugars to Fairtrade, and sugar cane growers in Belize are already enjoying the benefits of the premiums paid to them over and above the normal prices for raw sugar they deliver to the refinery. Construction of a £20 million biomass boiler on the riverfront is now complete. This will enable the refinery to switch up to 70% of its energy use and carbon emissions from fossil fuels to renewable biomass – helping to reduce energy costs and the environmental impact of the refinery. It is planned that some of the biomass feed for this boiler will be delivered by river.

TILBURY POWER STATION The coal-fired Tilbury Power Station produces power on three 350 MW units, generating enough electricity for the needs of a million people. This is fed into the National Grid system. The power station handles about 1.5 million tonnes of coal a year. Following an £11.5 million investment in extending the power station’s riverside jetty, owner and operator RWE npower can directly import a variety of coals using panamax size ships of up to 70,000

tonnes capacity from the world markets, without the need for transhipment from Europe. This has cut out transhipment costs, reducing fuel costs overall. Most deliveries are from the Baltic, particularly from Russia and the Latvian port of Riga, and the Tilbury terminal has also received coal from the Far East, South America, Australia, the US and South Africa. As more ports in the Baltic develop so that they can accommodate panamax

ships, RWE npower has continued to see an increase in larger tonnage at Tilbury. Jetty A can accommodate vessels up to 13.8 metres draft, without tidal constraint, providing a good deal more flexibility for shipping and the suppliers RWE npower uses – thus adding great commercial value to the overall business. Jetty B, accommodating ships with draughts of 7.2 metres at low water, is used for heavy fuel oil and gas oil deliveries.

A perfect location, unrivalled cargo diversity and excellent facilities are all critical assets in the Port of Tilbury’s successful offering. And as managing director Perry Glading puts it, top-quality service goes without saying. But Tilbury’s success is also being further developed and built on modal choice, a full range of portcentric and ‘green’ options, proactive networking and creative thinking. A common theme of the recent economic downturn has been shippers’ willingness to take a fresh look at their logistics and supply chains – and that, says Perry Glading, has led to a renewed focus on what Tilbury can offer.
