The Port of Workington has been chosen as the preferred discharge Port for supplying water pipes to the Thirlmere Links Mains Project, a joint venture for Farrans Roadbridge and United Utilities in association with My Metals Ltd and Noksel Espana.
The Port’s deep water facility and location was one of the major factors in winning this contract coupled with our freight terminal which has extensive laydown areas, and expertise in handling this type of project cargo.
Port of Workington is proud to have been involved in the importation of 28 brand new state of the art locomotives on behalf of Osprey Shipping and Direct Rail Services in partnership with Beacon Rail Leasing Ltd.
Over the 2 year contract all the locomotives were safely discharged from ship direct to Port rail sidings and onwards to Carlisle via the Cumbrian Coast Railway Line.
This was all made possible by the Port’s deep water facility, supported by our internal rail system which is directly connected to the main line network.
