ABP Immingham recently took delivery of the UK’s largest ever shipment of liquid nitrogen raw material (UAN), destined for the OMEX dedicated processing, storage and distribution terminal located at the port.
The 50,000mt DWT vessel is earmarked for OMEX customers from North Lincolnshire to the Scottish Borders and mirrors OMEX’s earlier largest shipments into the ports of Ipswich and Dundee of 13,000 tonnes and 10,000 tonnes respectively.
This shipment is one of a number scheduled to arrive across OMEX’s nationwide network of 10 distribution hubs in the coming months, ensuring a regular supply of Nitroflo liquid N+S fertiliser throughout the UK and Ireland.
OMEX agronomist Andy Eccles said: “Liquid fertilisers offer growers a sustainable fertiliser regime. Delivery throughout the UK from regional distribution points ensures timely local delivery, and the flexibility of UAN allows material from lower carbon sources to be selected and nitrification and urease inhibitors to be added if required.”
