Port of Tyne
The Port of Tyne is Bronze Sponsor for the COP26 International Maritime Hub.
Port of Tyne is an innovative deep-sea port, handling cargoes across five continents. Operations include bulk and conventional cargo, car terminals, cruise & ferry, port centric logistics and estates.
In 2019 we launched our Tyne 2050 strategy which prioritises green innovation and sustainability. Tyne 2050 includes clear targets and a 20-year roadmap to convert to renewable energy. We want to become a test bed for green innovation by 2025, carbon neutral by 2030 and all-electric by 2040.
This will transform the Port into an Enabler and Operator of sustainable maritime supply chain services to:
- secure the Port’s commercial future - for customers and their supply chains; for our employees and the wider community;
- minimise the impact of our operations, strengthen our value proposition as a service provider and foster innovation.
Some significant milestones have been achieved including diesel consumption cut by 260K litres, saving 2.3M kWh in energy, eliminating over 1,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions and creating 5,000 new jobs in the North East. In 2020 we were delighted to receive the Maritime UK Clean Enabler and Clean Operator awards.
Our Clean Energy roadmap attracted Equinor to make their flagship operations and maintenance (O&M) home at the Port of Tyne. Buildings in the new Equinor site will utilise new green technology and building practices to create what will become the world’s largest offshore wind farm at Dogger Bank bringing around 200 direct jobs, and estimated capital investment of £9bn to the North East. It is forecast to generate £50m additional revenues for South Shields with 5,200 new jobs.
We are proud to make your business our focus. The companies we work with are not just customers – we see them as our partners, working together to find solutions that transform their supply chain and grow their business.
We continually invest in improving and extending our leading-edge facilities at our location on the River Tyne in North East England, served with a network of sea routes, major roads and rail.
