Associated British Ports will invest an extra £15M in Humber International Terminal, already the scene of its largest ever investment. A total of £60M is now earmarked for Immingham, enabling the port to handle Scottish & Southern Energy's coal imports from 2006. The extra money will be used for new plant and coal stacking equipment. ABP port director Nick Palmer said: 'The new facilities will enable all cargo to be handled in an environmentally friendly manner with the use of automated materials handling systems.'
