ABLE UK has just recently welcomed the second Shell Brent platform to their Able Seaton Port (ASP) in Hartlepool. 

Able invested £28million in constructing this new facility, including one of the strongest quays in Europe, to meet the requirements for handling the Brent platforms—and putting the company at the forefront of the growing demand for decommissioning platforms as they come to the end of their operational lives.

ABLE is a market leader in marine decommissioning, a major land owner and developer across the north of England, particularly on the Tees and the Humber, and operates a number of ports.

In July 19 it was confirmed that ABLE is seeking to develop a new 240-acre facility ABLE South Tees – which would initially provide two adjacent offshore wind installation bases. This builds on ABLE track record in the offshore wind sector. ASP was the facility selected for the installation of the foundation package for the Hornsea One offshore wind farm and from September 2020 it will undertake the same role for the Triton Knoll turbine package. With ABLE also handling the onshore logistics the role of maintaining the Group’s capital plant – including 36 SPMT axles – is paramount.
