Associated British Ports (ABP) has been shortlisted in two Humber Renewables Awards 2018 categories for its installation of solar panels at the Port of Immingham and its female leadership of the launch of Immingham Renewable Fuels Terminal.

The company’s project to install 23,000 m2 of solar panels on multiple warehouses at Immingham saw it nominated for the ‘The Best Renewables Project or Installation in the Humber Area’. Due to become active this month, the panels will generate a total of 4.5MW electricity, kickstarting ABP’s recently launched plans to become one of the biggest corporate solar power producers in the UK.

Long-term goal

Simon Bird, regional director for ABP Humber, said: “I’m extremely proud that the Humber Renewable Awards have recognised ABP’s efforts in the renewable sector. We’re constantly striving to improve our methods of working to ensure we’re able to become more environmentally-friendly and these awards go some way to showing our dedication.”

ABP’s Humber International Terminal head Sarah West was put forward for the ‘Women in Manufacturing and Engineering’ award after proving her dedicated leadership whilst overseeing the launch of the UK’s largest biomass handling facility, Immingham Renewable Fuels Terminal.

The awards will take place at The Hallmark Hotel, North Ferriby on 11th May.
