Brightlingsea Port… the ideal port for easy access to
Essex, London and East Anglia.
We are able to handle any type of vessel so long as they fit within the normal port restrictions. Dry bulk vessels, Tankers, Off-Shore / Supply vessels, Tugs etc
We are a Licensed facility for handling the export of waste. We have experience in handling baled RDF/SRF, Bulk recycled wood chip.
We handle bulk aggregates, Sand (Sharp / soft sand).
We are able to handle other bulk or bagged materials, packaged timber, Steel products etc.
We currently operate using 2 x Fuchs 360MHL material handlers (mobile cranes), 1 long reach loading shovel, 1 Telehandler/forklift.
We are an industrial facility, however we are doing what we can to minimise what Â impact we have on our neighbours. We have installed 3 large 35,000 litre fresh water tanks (rain water harvesting). We have also setup Sprinkler systems to our boundaries and we have recently purchased 4 Dust Boss DB60’s which are top of the range dust suppression – mist canons to be used during operations that potentially could result in a high level of dust. See here what they are capable of…..
We offer both open and covered storage.
Open storage area of approximately 6.5 acres (about 2.60 Hectre).
Covered storage approximately 9,000 square foot or 835 square metres (up to 6.00 metre height).
We can currently accommodate vessels of up to 100m LOA, about 15.0M beam and up to about 5.3M draft on Spring tides.
Olivers Wharf is a NAABSA Â facility (Not Always Afloat But Safe Aground).
We are working with the local authority to improve the restrictions and hope to be able to accommodate vessels with deeper drafts in the near future.
