UK's cargo handling port on the South Coast Shoreham Port has welcome the first shipment of steel to the Barrett Steel site, following the assignment of the lease for the steel premises at the Port.

Barrett Steel, who are the largest independent steel stockholder in the UK, had their first cargo vessel arrive at the Port, it said.

Dave Bunker, General Manager Operations at Shoreham Port said "The vessel MV Jevenau arrived Sunday carrying 878 bundles of steel sheet piles weighing 3,620 tonnes, with operations beginning the following morning."

The ship came through the Port's Prince Phillip lock gates system, which replaces water in the canal via powerful impounding pumps that pump around 120,000 cubic meters of water into the Canal in an average 24 hour period.

The vessel then discharged within the canal, in which the water level is maintained above highest tide levels at approximately half a meter, and moored at Fishergate Terminal where there is a minimum of 1.5 meters of water beneath the keel, meaning that the vessel can always remain safely afloat throughout discharge and be unloaded with speed and efficiency.
