Sheet Piling UK improves UAE-origin import handling


Sheet Piling UK Limited has secured a long-term agreement with PD Ports at its Immingham site, to store and handle its steel sheet piles.

PD Ports will store and handle up to 16,000 tonnes of imported sheet pile materials. It will also provide clutch sealing, cutting and welding. “Sheet Piling UK’s imports and supply chain was unaffected by both Covid-19 and Brexit, due to its unique position as the exclusive strategic partner of Emirates Steel throughout the UK and Ireland,” the firm says in a note seen by Kallanish.

The sheet piles arrive directly in to Immingham from Abu Dhabi, and will be stored and worked on-site before onward distribution. Previously, they were imported, transported via road, worked and then re-distributed. “The new arrangement saves the need for the double-handling of cargo and provides a truly consolidated, sustainable solution, in keeping with both PD Ports’ and Sheet Piling UK’s sustainability practices,” Sheet Piling UK observes.

Back in 2017 Emirates Steel said it aimed to boost supply of sheet piles to Europe (see Kallanish passim).
