ABP is the UK’s leading ports operator, with 21 ports around Britain, handling around one quarter of the UK’s seaborne trade. We see ports as playing a crucial role in future carbon transport supply chains. ABP is an active member of industrial clusters in the Humber and South Wales; Zero Carbon Humber and the South Wales Industrial Cluster respectively. These collaborations seek to support the decarbonisation of industry and power generation through deployment of carbon capture and low carbon hydrogen production.
Port infrastructure can play a crucial role in the supply chains that develop from these clusters and other projects. The transport and shipping of CO2 via ABP’s ports can contribute significantly to the evolution of an industry. We are actively exploring feasibility studies in relation to the transit and storage of CO2 via ports.
