Port Services & Key Facilities

With deep-water river and dock berths located ten minutes from open sea, Port of Sunderland provides over 1650 metres of vessel berthing.

In addition a unique combination of infrastructure comprising a heavy duty roll out ro-ro ramp, a load out quay and a reinforced crane slab allows for heavy lift cargo handling and project support. The port has two Liebherr LHM420 mobile cranes that are capable of tandem lifting up to 240T and also moving around the dock estate. Supporting these are a range of smaller cranes and a fleet of forklifts that can lift up to 32T.

There is over 55 hectares of developable land immediately behind the port’s berths with hardstanding and nearly 20,000 square metres of warehousing for material laydown, storage and fabrication. Five hectares of this land is designated with Enterprises Zone status.

The deep-water Corporation Quay benefits from the restitution of an operational rail spur adjacent to the quay, allowing a direct link to the national rail network.
