Derbyshire based waste and metal management company Ward has shipped its first vessel of 20,000 tonnes of steel from its dock in Immingham to Turkey.

The MV Fearless ship has five storage holds and four onboard cranes to unload the scrap.

It is the first shipment from Ward’s Immingham dock which opened in April 2018.

Ward has employed five full time permanent staff and invested in new infrastructure, site upgrades and plant and equipment including two Sennebogen 830e and a Liebherr LH40 cranes.

Thomas Ward, commercial manager at Ward, said: “We can now independently import and export steel om bulk to and from anywhere in the world. At least another five vessels like this one are expected to ship out this year.”

The sourced scrap metal is from local customers or recovered from construction and demolition waste or railway upgrade projects.

Speaking to RWW, a spokesperson for Ward said the exports are expected to expand to half a million tonnes within the next year given that Turkey is one of the largest markets for rebar.
