ABP invites public to weigh in on new green energy terminal at Immingham

UK-based Associated British Ports (ABP) has launched a statutory consultation and invited the public to share their views on the proposed new Immingham Green Energy Terminal (IGET) located on the eastern side of the Port of Immingham.

The development will include a new two berth jetty and associated infrastructure to be used for the import and export of bulk liquids.

As part of the project, Air Products will construct and operate a green hydrogen production facility.

Strategically placed in the heart of the Humber’s energy estuary, IGET will contribute to the Humber 2030 Vision – a plan to decarbonise the Humber by 2030.

According to ABP, the development proposals will constitute a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) as per the Planning Act 2008, requiring an application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to be made to the secretary of state.

“Formal Statutory Consultation with the local community and key stakeholders will run from Monday 9 January 2023 to 23:59 on Monday 20 February 2023, with in-person consultation sessions taking place throughout the consultation period at the Immingham Civic Centre, Pelham Road, Immingham, DN40 1QF,” said ABP in a statement.

The announce comes less than three months after it was unveiled that a new carbon dioxide (CO2) terminal is to be built at the port.

To be developed by Harbour Energy and ABP, the terminal will act as a hub connecting CO2 emissions generated from UK industry to Harbour Energy’s CCS big-capacity CO2 storage sites in the Southern North Sea.

A full list of specific dates and times is available on the ABP website.
