Using industry information we have designed the quays as follows:-
To date £50m has been invested in preparing AHP for the speedy construction of industrial facilities for its tenants.
The Offshore Wind industryhas advanced rapidly and weunderstand that precisely identifyingwhat it will be like in 2030 is difficult.
AHP however has the scale ofland, the size and design of quays,that allow for significant expansionin terms of both plant and overallcapacity.
The site is flat with a UDL of 10t/m2and a patch load of 50t/m2 with norisk of environmental contamination.
In the heart of an industrial area andwith no residential neighbours, AHPis suitable for operations to work 24hours per day; 7 days per week, asrequired.
AHP provides tenants with first rightof refusal on adjacent land enablingplanned and phased development.
We understand that tenants willrequire individual, bespoke capitalequipment. However, to reduceup front capital expenditure AHPwill provide multi-user services thatare available to hire such as largecranes, reach/lift trucks, dock cranesand SPMTs.
AHP is adjacent to the AbleLogistics Park (AEP) – a 270 hagreenfield site with full planningpermission granted for thecreation of extensive warehousing(1,700,000m2 ), external storageand transportation depots. Thedevelopment of AEP will complementAHP’s tenants activities, potentiallyenabling a just in time approachminimising inventories, sustainingand maximising efficiencies andworkflow concepts.
Enterprise Zone status includesSpecial Planning Zone (SPZ) benefitsto expedite the detailed planningprocess for potential clients.
AHP will include a businesspark with new offices thatcan accommodate a rangeof supporting organisationsundertaking tasks such asenvironmental and geotechnicalassessments, legal financial andinsurance services, planning,engineering and design.
Lighting – 45m high lighting columnsacross the site with 30m lightingcolumns within the business parkand supplier park areas.
Security – 24 hour security withgate houses on all designatedentrances. The port will have fullindustry security accreditations -DfT Maritime (formerly TRANSEC).
Compounds and facilities will beboundary fenced with effective useof landscaping to further mitigatesecurity issues and provide clear onsitedemarcation.
The development land has beendesigned to the appropriateflood defence levels agreed andestablished by the UK EnvironmentAgency. This is on the basis ofa flood risk assessment and willaccommodate the 1 in 200 yeartidal event, which has an annualoccurrence probability of 0.5%.
