1 John C Chaplin BSc CEng FICE Director of Engineering Presentation for SEP – 8 Oct 2010

2 1. Why Ports, a little reminder! 2. Our current activities, very briefly 3. Future works, but especially…… 4. Bristol Deep Sea Container Terminal

3 Shipping and Freight Carries 90%+ of world trade: –Raw materials and commodities –Finished goods –Foodstuffs –Fuel Underpins global economy and is essential for sustainable development Is safe, secure and the most environmentally- friendly and fuel- efficient of all modes of transport IMO

4 97% by tonnage of all the goods entering and leaving the UK do so through sea ports UK is increasingly dependant upon imports The balance of trade is the difference between the monetary value of exports and imports in an economy over a certain period of time In 2007, our balance of trade was a deficit of £90 billion, and it is getting worse As an island nation, we are reliant upon Ports Ports in the UK


6 Close to Population Big Ship Capability Excellent links – sea, road & rail Modern Infrastructure Development land available Bristol Advantages

7 Royal Edward Dock (1908) Avonmouth Dock (1877) SSC Royal Portbury Dock (1977) M5 – J19 M5 N

8 Our major customers E.ON UK International Power RWE NPower SSE Energy Daimler Chrysler Fiat Honda Mitsubishi Toyota Autologic Arkady Feed Constellation LaFarge Plasterboard Mondi Business Paper MSC Esso Petroleum BOSL Kuwait Petroleum

9 The Future for Bristol Port Continued import, export & transhipment of cargo Port-based Power Stations using Biofuel Support for on & off-shore wind turbine development Support for new power stations in the Region Government has said that UK must maintain its status as a centre for imports and not become a feeder destination There is a shortage of UK deep sea container port capacity……………………………

10 and…………. UK roads are congested, particularly in GSE Some form of road-use charge is likely Fuel costs escalating Emissions need to be reduced Recognise benefits of Rail for freight Inefficient UK inland distribution of goods Ship routing needs to be more efficient

11 More use of containers

12 Owing to transhipment movements to the Tees and ports north of the Tees not being captured by this study, accuracy north of York is not guaranteed. Map showing destination of import containers. Largest percentage of import containers in proximity to Bristol.

13 Quay wall Reclaim of Foreshore Brownfield development North

14 Bristol Port Deep Sea Container Terminal - Key Information Capacity1.5 million TEU per annum Draught16 metres Quay Length1.2 km Cranage15 no Super Post-Panamax gantry cranes (67m outreach) Handling & Storage Area150 acres Modal Split:20% transhipped 66% road 14% rail (demand)

15 Proposed Avonmouth Deep Sea Container Terminal M5, J18 M4/M5 i/c Twin rail tracks to Parkway Avonmouth/ Severnside M49, Wales North

16 Benefits of development Provide container import/export capacity for UK Enable the distribution of cargo from Bristol to the local hinterland Maintain and improve Port’s standing, ensuring growth and providing new opportunities Create about 1,500 new jobs & protect existing jobs Generate additional regional GDP Utilise existing rail infrastructure Support developing local distribution market

17 Timeline 2008 HRO submitted - 22 July 08 42 day statutory consultation period Dealing with objectors 2009 Public Inquiry – cancelled 2010 HRO granted 2015 Terminal Operational We are here

18 Programme Critical Activities: 1.Civil Engineering and Dredging Works 2.Compensation Site 3.Monitoring, Compensation & Mitigation Agreement (MCMA)

19 Civil Engineering and Dredging Works Expressions of Interest Tender & assessment Appointment of: Construct Bristol Terminal A JV of Costain, BAM Nuttall, Halcrow, Van Oord & Boskalis

20 Construct Bristol Terminal - ECI The Port’s objective: To have by Q1, 2011: A cost and programme for the proposed works (assuming a start in Q1, 2012) – a) Caisson quay wall b) Open piled deck and revetment A full understanding of the Risks (technical, environmental, financial & time) A package of factual information sufficient to seek tenders for a D&B contract to construct the proposed works

21 SAC – special areas of conservation SPA – special protection area SSSI – site of special scientific interest Ramsar – wetlands convention after meeting in Iran COMPENSATION OBJECTIVES: Provide 120 Ha of Intertidal habitat Inc 22 Ha of mudflat Compensate for this area

22 Compensation – Habitats Directive: Provide compensation site for habitat loss in Avonmouth Satisfy performance objectives Provide Sustainable development, designated in 10 years Options available, work with EA

23 Hinkley Point Bridgwater Combwich Steart Village N

24 TBPC breach from Severn Estuary EA breach from Parrett Estuary TBPC & EA Schemes

25 Compensation Site Port’s requirement for help from professional advisors and RSPB (as “expert” and future manager) 1.Expressions of interest & tenders 2.ABPmer appointed (with others) 3.RSPB appointed

26 Monitoring, Compensation and Mitigation Agreement Environmental Steering Group (ESG) established HR Wallingford and Port developing proposals to address MCMA

27 Conclusion Ports are essential to UK plc Bristol Port remains a superb location for the import and export of cargo to and from the UK main population centres Bristol Port is a multi-modal transport hub and already contributes significantly to emissions savings by delivering cargo near to its users Bristol Deep Sea Container Terminal will benefit the UK, the Region and the local area Today the Port supports 8,000+ jobs in the locality and more in the future
