Bates terminal

Bates has recently been relaunched as a ‘clean energy’ terminal following a major investment programme and is home to numerous offshore energy related tenants. Also utilised for breakbulk and project cargoes, it offers a good mix of modern warehousing and new build opportunities on Enterprize Zone land.



The terminal in its current form is the result of a £6m redevelopment programme over the last two years that has delivered a heavy load out quay, new roads and hardstanding, cranes and warehouse improvements.

The terminal is served by two berths both strengthened for heavy lift operations and offering up to 7.6m LAT. The terminal benefits from a RoRo pontoon, more than 16,000 sq m of existing warehousing and workshop space, a marine fuels facility and 7HA of open storage/development land available.

Port Training Services’ unique Wind Turbine Training Facility is located on the site, offering a whole range of real world training opportunities to the renewables sector. Bates Terminal also offers direct access to the adjacent Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult research and testing facilities.

All operational terminals at the Port benefit from a wide range of handling equipment and experience for lifting project pieces up to 600 tonne and moving pieces greater than this by RoRo and SPMTs.
