Member site visit to Bristol Port, 18 May 2016

Twenty MBristol Port MHEA member visitHEA members took advantage of the opportunity to take part in a site visit to Bristol Port on 18th May, which comprised a tour of both the Avonmouth Dock and Royal Portbury Dock.

After an overnight stay nearby for those who wished, the group met at 10.30am and enjoyed an informative minibus tour of both sites. We were accompanied by Martin Downey CEng, Director, who ably and thoroughly answered all members’ questions.

The Royal Portbury Dock tour encompassed the forest products terminal, lock gates, car terminal, animal feed/grain sheds, bulk terminal and jet fuel terminal.

At Avonmouth Dock, across the river, the various sights included the scrap metal terminal, oil basin, wind turbines, cruise terminal and fresh produce terminal. In addition, attendees were shown the foreshore with information on its wildlife and the proposed deep sea container terminal site, as well as hearing about the history of the dock which dates back to 1870.
