It has been a busy few months here at Cargo Services, especially at Bird Port with the opening of the All Weather Ships Terminal in August. September also saw the opening of Bird Port 2 (quay length of 140m & still able to handle coaster vessels in excess of 3000 Tonnes).
The new All Weather Terminal is proving to be a continuous success; In October 2014, the M.V. Luhnau was discharged in under 4 hours with a coil cargo of 3551.839 tonnes (an average of 45 coils an hour). The new All Weather Ships Terminal has two unique 43 tonne & 35 tonne capacity Goliath Gantry Cranes which span the dock (unbeatable turnaround of Coil vessels and dispatch to customers anywhere in the UK).
