Aggregate Industries

Aggregate Industries is at the frontline of the construction and infrastructure industries, producing and supplying an array of construction materials. With more than 330 sites and over 4,100 dedicated employees, it is home to everything from aggregates, asphalt, ready-mixed concrete and precast concrete products. It also produces, imports and supplies materials for cement and has national road surfacing and contracting services. It offers a full range of products which will help its customers work sustainably, safely, professionally and profitably.

Aggregate Industries is a member of the global building materials and solutions company LafargeHolcim, which has 90,000 employees in over 80 countries. Certified with The Responsible Source™, thanks to its continued innovation and investment, the company offers a varied portfolio of sustainable solutions that complement its typically traditional products.

With operations in the centre of London and the Thames Gateway areas, Aggregate Industries is well placed to serve construction projects at the heart of the nation. Through its London-based ready-mixed concrete business London Concrete, it has supplied construction projects such as the Shard, the Olympic Park and Crossrail.

As a quarrying company, Aggregate Industries owns sites across the UK and has major operations in Scotland, the East Midlands and Somerset, from which it moves construction aggregates across the country and to London by ship and rail.

The company operates the world’s largest self-discharging aggregate carriers, which carry up to 97,000 tonnes. Along the Thames, it operates a fleet of tugs and barges through Bennett’s Barges.

Bennett’s Barges transports hundreds of thousands of tonnes of aggregate products from the Isle of Grain depot to its Thames customers, saving more than six million lorry miles each year. It has a reputation for taking on the South East’s most technically complicated maritime projects. In 2012, Bennett’s Barges was at the forefront of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee pageant. The specially refitted tug Stephen B and barge Ursula Katherine underwent extensive redesign to carry the floating belfry containing the eight Jubilee Bells.

Aggregate Industries is committed to use of the river for transporting freight through the capital without adding to road use, helping to reduce carbon emissions for a cleaner environment in the capital. Away from the rivers and canals, aggregates are transported by rail wherever possible into depots and terminals, hauled by energy-efficient locomotives.

At Blackfriars Bridge, Bennett’s Barges assisted in transporting more than 80,000 tonnes of material to and from the site by water – not a single lorry load being put on London’s roads.

Aggregate Industries is looking to work on future London development projects that are committed to using the waterways, such as the Thames Tideway Tunnel, the Northern Line extension and the ongoing programme of flood defence works in the Thames Estuary.

Brett Aggregates

More than one million tonnes of sea-dredged aggregates from specific areas of the North Sea, the mid-Channel and off the southern UK coast around the Isle of Wight are landed each year at Alpha Jetty, Brett Aggregates’ main terminal in the Port of London.

Rail and river export accounts for the onward transit of more than 40% of Brett’s output from the terminal, with several trains departing every day.

An onsite block-making plant utilises imported aggregates to produce a number of concrete products for Brett Landscaping and Building Products.

The site has very significant capacity for receipt of spoil from construction projects and is able to receive imported spoil by river and by rail. Imported spoil is used to build a bird reserve in a partnership project with the RSPB.

Brett Aggregates also has terminals at Northfleet, Ridham, Whitstable and Ramsgate, and other facilities outside the Thames Estuary, all of which handle bulk materials including minerals, and supply goods and services into the construction industry in the South East market.

Brett will be opening a state-of-the-art concrete plant at Peruvian Wharf in 2018, which will supply the full range of high-specification concrete mixes using both primary and secondary aggregates to the local area around Silvertown and to major projects in the rapidly developing East London area.

The Peruvian site enables these aggregates to be delivered to the point of concrete production sustainably by river and without moving aggregates by road, reducing the carbon footprint of the concrete produced and helping to reduce pollution and congestion on London’s roads, while delivering the critical construction materials for development and regeneration.

CEMEX UK

CEMEX is a global building materials solutions company with leading market positions in aggregates, cement and readymixed concrete. Its London terminals, including a plant at the Port of Tilbury, supply many major construction projects in South East England.

The company operates four wharves on the river. It supplies several of its concrete plants with aggregates by river barges, reducing lorry deliveries into central London. Materials are supplied by barge to the CEMEX Fulham site for use in the onsite concrete plant, as well as to other CEMEX customers along the river, while Northfleet Wharf, Dagenham and Angerstein Wharf handle imports of sea-dredged aggregates from CEMEX UK Marine.

A new wharf has been developed at Dagenham, making this the closest aggregate production north of the river to central London, with production capacity of 500,000 tonnes a year.

The CEMEX concrete products factory at Northfleet produces a wide range of block paving, concrete blocks and bricks. The multipurpose facility is CEMEX’s largest concrete products factory in the UK, producing more than 1.5 million square metres of finished product per year. It has a prime location by the Thames which enables it to maximise both the amount of dredged raw material it can use and the amount of material that is brought in by boat, as opposed to road.

CEMEX’s 1.2 million tonne capacity cement grinding and blending plant at the Port of Tilbury is the only cement grinding plant in South East England. As well as CEM1 Portland cement, the main product manufactured at the facility is blended cement, which incorporates by-products from other industries to make cements for use in all types of concrete applications, including housing, hospitals, schools and roads. Blended cements enable every tonne of clinker, an intermediate cement product, to go further, lessening the overall impact of manufacture and delivering a more sustainable operation.

The plant is situated directly on the quayside, with 10 metres water depth and the ability to handle ships up to 25,000 tonnes. It is well positioned to take advantage of CEMEX UK’s extensive network of London wharfs and depots, all of which are connected by river and rail to further minimise emissions and relieve the pressure on congested roads.

The high-efficiency, low-energy facility is CEMEX’s first vertical cement mill and uses 20-40% less energy than traditional horizontal mills. Building materials are being supplied to high-profile projects around the country including Crossrail, the Thames Tideway Tunnel and Mersey Gateway.

Hanson

Hanson is investing over £100 million in its London-based operations with a major upgrade of the Victoria Deep Water Terminal, including development of a precast concrete factory to make tunnelling segments for the Tideway project, which is expected to take six years to complete. There will also be investment in new aggregates processing equipment at Dagenham depot and the introduction of two new dredgers to transport marine-dredged sand and gravel into the capital.

Hanson operates three facilities on the Thames – a marine wharf, asphalt plant and rail depot at Dagenham; a wharf and readymixed concrete plant at Victoria Deep (Greenwich); and a wharf and ready-mixed concrete plant at Wandsworth.

Volumes of marine-dredged sand and gravel through the aggregates hub at Dagenham were flat in 2017 as the London construction market cooled a little in the wake of the Brexit vote and the ensuing political instability. Investor confidence in the commercial sector remains fragile but some large infrastructure projects such as the Thames Tideway super sewer continue to absorb large quantities of sand, gravel and limestone to make ready-mixed and precast concrete, so the future for the business remains bright.

Looking ahead to 2018, construction markets in London and the South East are expected to remain flat, with a decline in commercial and office activity offset by greater demand from public-funded infrastructure and road maintenance projects.

The Thames is crucial to Hanson’s operations, enabling the company to deliver materials close to where they are needed, eliminating thousands of road miles. Around 600,000 tonnes a year of marine-dredged sand and gravel from the eastern English Channel and the North Sea are landed at Dagenham Wharf. A barge-loading facility is used for the onward transportation of sands, gravels and limestone up the Thames to the ready-mixed concrete plants at Greenwich and Wandsworth.

Rail also plays a key part in the distribution chain. Crushed limestone from the Mendips and hardstone from South Wales is imported into the Dagenham terminal to feed the site’s two asphalt plants, which make road surfacing materials for local roads, trunk routes and the motorway network. There is also a readymixed concrete plant on the site. Sand, gravel and crushed rock is exported by rail to depots at Acton, Brentford, Theale and Bow. From there it is transferred to Hanson’s network of ready-mixed concrete plants located within the M25.

The Dagenham terminal, which receives vessels 24 hours a day, also incorporates a recycling depot and a bagging facility supplying bagged aggregates to the DIY and small construction sector.

Hanson is also investing £70 million in two new 3,000 cubic metre capacity trailing suction hopper dredgers for its marine aggregate fleet. Due to enter into service in 2019, they will be used to bring sand and gravel from the North Sea and Eastern English Channel into dedicated wharves on the Thames and Medway rivers.

Equivalent in size to Hanson’s existing A-Class vessels, carrying up to 5,500 tonnes of sand and gravel, the new vessels will provide major improvements in fuel consumption, reliability and CO2 emissions.

Industrial Chemicals

Industrial Chemicals Limited has operated in the Thurrock area since 1976 and purchased its 80-acre site at the former West Thurrock Power Station some 20 years ago.

The company employs more than 300 people and handles in excess of one million tonnes of materials per annum, with sales of over 300,000 tonnes of finished materials and products.

Industrial Chemicals operates chemical manufacturing plants throughout the UK and supplies products to the detergent, paper, water treatment and chemical industries on a global basis. These customers range from large international blue chip companies to small family businesses.

Investments at the jetty in recent years have included the installation of a Siwertell mobile screw unloader for environmentally friendly discharge of bulk dry powder shipments. In addition, a rail-mounted travelling quay crane was commissioned to handle bulk, general and container cargoes. The crane has a lift capacity of 48 tonnes at 16 metres, and 16 tonnes at 25 metres. Additional investment has seen the installation of a pipeline on the jetty and construction of new tank capacity on the main site to facilitate the handling and storage of liquid bulk products.

Although West Thurrock Jetty saw a slight decrease in the volume of products handled across the Jetty in 2017 when compared to 2016, handling 120,000 tonnes and 134,000 tonnes respectively, the signs are extremely promising for the Jetty in 2018 with several new commodities for in-house processing under consideration.

Situated only two miles from Junction 30/31 of the M25 London orbital motorway and close to the Dartford Crossing, with deep water and sufficient storage land, the facility offers an ideal location for serving end-markets both north and south of the Thames for thirdparty customers.

Industrial Chemicals has an onsite approved weighbridge as well as 24/7 security operations across the whole site.

Stema Shipping (UK) Ltd

Stema has two operations on the Thames handling sand, gravel and aggregates – at Red Lion Wharf in Northfleet and at the Port of Tilbury. The company had a very busy 2017, recording a another record year for import of aggregates through their Thames terminals.

Red Lion Wharf, which is owned by Stema, has a 220-metre jetty with depth alongside of seven metres and six acres of open storage for imported aggregates. About 1,150,000 tonnes of sand, gravel and aggregates from Stema’s own quarries in Norway, and sand from Denmark, are imported through this facility. Of this, about 250,000 tonnes goes back out by barge, and the company is looking at ways of increasing this.

At Tilbury, Stema operates at 1 Berth, where it has 10.5 metres water depth and a 2.75 acre site. At present it handles about 500,000 tonnes at Tilbury.

Jelsa Quarry with an output of 11 million tonnes a year is now the largest coastal aggregates quarry in the world. The company took delivery of three new self-discharging 32,000 dwt vessels in 2010. A key strength for Stema is its fully independent supply of aggregates with an integrated supply chain from quarry through to delivery to the end user.

Tarmac

Tarmac, a CRH company, is the UK’s leading sustainable building materials and construction solutions business. The company has over 150 years of experience and directly employs around 6,900 people across a nationwide network of over 400 sites. Its solutions span aggregates, asphalt, cement, lime, readymix concrete, road contracting services, building products and recycling services.

Its innovative products and solutions not only help to safely deliver the infrastructure needed to grow the UK economy today but also help to create a more sustainable built environment for the country’s long term future.

Tarmac has a number of operations along the tidal Thames, at Northfleet, Charlton, Erith, Thurrock and Greenhithe. Between them, these sites distribute millions Dry bulks Port of London Handbook 105 of tonnes of cement, marinedredged sand and gravel, and crushed rock aggregate throughout London and the South East by road, rail and water. The business has contributed to a number of prestigious projects from its wharves on the Thames, including the Channel Tunnel terminus at King’s Cross/St Pancras, the Emirates Stadium, Canary Wharf, the Millennium Dome, the Olympic athletes’ village, Crossrail and the M25.

Murphy’s Wharf, on the Greenwich peninsula, for example, is ideally placed to supply east and central London, being located on the south of the River Thames and near the Blackwall Tunnel. It is believed to be the largest marine aggregate terminal in Europe in terms of output, capable of operating 24/7 and complemented by an onsite concrete plant which supplies ready-mix concrete into the local market. Nearly half of all material made at the facility is transported to customers by rail. During 2013, a new rail loading facility and primary screens were installed to expand this capability.

The sites at Riverside Wharf (Charlton), Mulberry Wharf Belvedere) and Pioneer Wharf (Erith) complement the Murphy’s Wharf operation, providing additional capacity and flexibility to supply the Kent and south/east London markets.

The sites at Greenwich (Brewery Wharf) and Silvertown (Dock Road Wharf) both produce ready-mix concrete using aggregates transported to them by barge.

Greenhithe processes sea-dredged sand and gravel for use in building projects across the region. Tarmac’s cement and aggregates distribution hub at West Thurrock combines a deepwater wharf with rail-loading facilities and excellent access to the local road network. The wharf allows ships to discharge at all times, regardless of the tide. The material is processed on site ready for onward distribution by road or rail. In 2015, Tarmac invested in new processing facilities at Thurrock for marine-dredged aggregates boosting both production capability and reliance at this location.

Northfleet is a notable success story. The former cement plant has been demolished and the company is planning for a new operation that will enable it to supply essential construction materials to and from the site by river, road and rail. A cement import cement terminal is operational at Northfleet and planning permission has been granted for an aggregates terminal to make use of the site’s deepwater wharf (42 Wharf) and its proximity to London.

Tarmac has made a major investment in reconnecting its rail freight facilities at Northfleet to the main north Kent line. The new line was used up to 2014 to transport excavated material from the Crossrail tunnels in London, reducing HGV movements out of the capital. At Northfleet, the excavated material was then transferred to ship for the final part of its journey along the Thames to enhance the RSPB nature reserve at Wallasea Island in Essex.

T&L Sugars

The T & L Sugars Thames Refinery at Silvertown is one of the largest cane sugar refineries in the world. The 18 hectare site can process 160 tonnes of raw sugar an hour, with an annual capacity of up to 1.1 million tonnes per annum. There is bulk storage for 65,000 tonnes, together with 2,000 tonnes of storage capacity for palletised refined sugar for export.

The 161-metre raw sugar jetty has a guaranteed minimum depth of 10 metres at low water and receives up to 50 vessels each year in a range of sizes from 4,000 to 58,000 dwt.

Raw sugar is imported by Tate & Lyle Sugars from a variety of suppliers. Some of these are granted preferential access to the EU under agreements with the ACP (Africa, Caribbean and Pacific), LDC (Least Developed Countries) and MFN (Most Favoured Nations), and under the terms of Free Trade Agreements with Central and South American suppliers, together with sugar from world market suppliers such as Brazil.

Refined sugar and specialist products are transported directly to domestic retail and industrial customers from the site, either packed or as bulk dry and liquid products, and are also exported by ship or container worldwide. The 48-metre export jetty alongside the refinery can handle vessels of more than 3,000 dwt.

The raw sugar jetty is equipped with two cranes, each with a capacity of 16 tonnes, installed in 2007. These, together with current stevedoring arrangements, ensure that raw sugar discharge at the refinery is a world-class operation.

Since 2008, Tate & Lyle Sugars has supported many farmers’ organisations to become Fairtrade certified. Today Tate & Lyle Sugars sources Fairtrade sugar from thousands of small-scale cane farmers in different groups in four countries.
