Associated British Ports (ABP) South Wales is aiming to win work from suppliers to the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station.
The port of Barry is the closest commercial port to Hinkley Point C and ABP also runs ports at Cardiff, Newport, Port Talbot, and Swansea.
The construction of Hinkley Point C over the coming ten years will involve the supply of a significant volume of construction materials and components. ABP said it could provide services to suppliers.
The logistics support offered at the ports include experience in handling heavy lift and project cargoes, multimodal connectivity, deep sea access, the construction of bespoke warehousing on the port, and the facilitation of the transport of cargo from deep-sea ocean-going vessels to smaller ships and barges capable of accessing and unloading at the Hinkley Point C Jetty/Combwich Wharf.
ABP South Wales’ five ports of, Newport, Cardiff, Barry, Port Talbot and Swansea contribute about £1.4bn to the UK economy every year and support 15,000 jobs.
