New bulk terminal to serve UK construction market
20 August 2018

Eureka Shipping has established a multipurpose floating bulk terminal at the Port of Tilbury in southeast England, under a four-year agreement with Cemineral and London Container Terminal.

Cemineral will use the terminal to supply fly ash to the construction market in the southeast of the country.

The 125m-long VESPER terminal has a 10,000t capacity and is designed to receive bulk powder both from self-discharging pneumatic cement carriers and from bulk vessels in a dust-free manner, according to Dry Cargo International.

"We are experts in handling bulk materials, and, coupled with our strategic location, this makes us a natural point for distribution. Serving the whole UK market, we have excellent transport links to and from London and across the South East where over 50 per cent of the population live and work," said Peter Ward, commercial director at the port.
