The new state-of-the-art 1200 m2 workshop provides an increased amount of space for the engineering department to undertake servicing and maintenance of operational equipment used by stevedores to load and discharge customer vessels.

The workshops encompass new office space for the engineering operations, while providing new amenities for the electrical and fabrication/welding engineers that service the port estates. The building also incorporates a new, larger, mess room facility for the port’s team of stevedores.

Matthew Kennerley, Director, ABP South Wales, said: “The work of our engineering department is vital in supporting the port’s operational teams and ultimately, our customers. The investment in these new workshops is part of our commitment to continually improving the services we offer, while providing a great place to work for our dedicated employees.”

The ABP South Wales engineering team is responsible for maintaining and servicing all port equipment and infrastructure, from cargo handling machinery, lock gates and associated machinery, to the port’s outdoor lighting.

Construction work began in January 2018 and was completed in October 2018. The project was led by the internal civil engineering team with, input from the whole department.
