Brett Aggregates Delivers The First Cargo Of Aggregates Into Portsmouth

Brett Aggregates has delivered the first cargo of aggregates into Portsmouth Port on the Brett owned dredger, the Britannia Beaver.

The port, which is operated by Portico Ltd and owned by Portsmouth City Council, is close to the Brett Group’s marine aggregates licences off the Isle of Wight and in the Channel. The delivery is the first of a regular delivery of materials into the Port to serve local construction demand.

Olly Brown, Development Director for the Brett Group commented: “Land based quarries are not being replenished and the significant lack of construction materials available for quarrying locally means the need for marine dredged aggregates continues to grow. Together with our development of Newhaven Wharf, which started operating last year, this agreement expands the network of Brett marine operations around the South East from which we are able to supply locally dredged, locally produced materials to the local construction market.”

Portico has recently created additional quayside space at the port through the reconfiguring the site to accommodate dry bulk materials. Steve Williams, Portico's Operations Director said: "Our location and ability to handle a range of goods makes Portico an ideal terminal to help support UK trade. This recent delivery demonstrates a great opportunity to work with a significant independent firm in the building materials sector, we hope this is just the start of a long term agreement, with the potential for the relationship to grow and to help to meet regional demand for materials.”
