Nuclear Energy Ports
Wales has strategically located ports which provide valuable supply chain and deployment support for energy projects.
Ports here have reacted positively to maximise the market potential of energy projects. A prime example would be the Port of Mostyn in north Wales who have made considerable capital investment to support the offshore wind energy sector which has enabled them to become RWE’s preferred partner to service their three offshore wind farms in the area. They also work closely with Airbus to transport their A380 wings. The Port has also developed a comprehensive supply chain infrastructure to support the projects, which could provide significant input into the proposed energy developments along the north Wales coast.
Holyhead Port is strategically located to support energy projects in north Wales including the nuclear sector and has actively worked alongside companies to develop solutions. The Port has recently completed a master planning exercise which incorporated a nuclear development option.
Similarly, Milford Haven, the UK’s largest energy port, which is based in south Wales has an extensive oil and gas supply chain infrastructure, delivering products and services to both sectors.
Associated British Ports (ABP) operates 5 ports along the south Wales coastline located at Barry, Cardiff, Newport, Port Talbot and Swansea.
ABP offers a wide range of services to customers and has experience of working alongside energy businesses.
