Derbyshire metals recycler agrees lease with port company for multi-million pound export trade

Barlborough-based metals recycler Enicor has agreed a lease deal with Associated British Ports enabling the firm to support a multi-million pound contract to export scrap from British Steel.

It means 400,000 tonnes of Skim Iron, sometimes known as pig iron skulls, will be shipped from Immingham on the River Humber to carry the material to international markets.

James Bowers, CEO of Enicor said: “Enicor has gone from strength to strength in recent years seeing turnover exceed £100M and tonnages exported reaching new levels.

“The opening of our Immingham dock operations is a milestone moment for the company allowing us to sell deep sea cargos worldwide. We understand that our first vessel of scrap exported will be the largest in recent years. We hope to maintain a close relationship with ABP over the coming years and push to execute vessels of similar size every four to six weeks. We would like to thank ABP for their support thus far.”

Two deep sea vessels have been organised for a total of 47,000mts to ship the by-product to international markets. This is the largest scrap export shipment within the last few years. The first vessel arrived in port mid-January to collect the first shipment.

Simon Bird, Regional Director for the Humber ports said: “Enicor recognises the importance of Immingham as a gateway to the rest of the world. The Port of Immingham is ideally located with excellent links to global markets and will be vital in helping them fulfil their plans as a business.”
