PD Ports has appointed Royal Haskoning to carry out an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for its proposed deepsea terminal at Teesport, including the preparation of a construction and engineering report on the brownfield site.

"The role of the EIA is to comprehensively identify and assess potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed terminal development and subsequent dredging, " says PD ports development director Martyn Pellew. "Where appropriate, mitigation measures will be proposed in order to minimise any adverse impacts that are identified.

"We envisage that the development will bring beneficial socio-economic impacts and it has the potential for wider environmental and ecological benefits which will be explored in the EIA. The addition of this new northern gateway is expected to reduce the need for inland transportation from southern UK ports, which would bring a net reduction in traffic emissions."

A consultation process is already underway, with the involvement of interested environmental parties such as English Nature and the Environment Agency. Royal Haskoning's work will enable the submission of a planning application to the local planning authority and a harbour revision order in the autumn. The aim is to carry out a thorough EIA so that there will be the minimum of delay in the application approval process, enabling the development of the new terminal as soon as possible.

An additional 1.5m TEUs capacity is planned.
