CEMEX Fulham plant supplies transported more sustainably

Published by

CEMEX is working with Thames Shipping to supply aggregates to the company’s Fulham plant. The plant, located near to Wandsworth Bridge on a safeguarded wharf, is the furthest upstream plant to be supplied by barge.

Loaded at a CEMEX aggregate processing and distribution wharf, located in Dagenham, the barge must travel 19.5 miles to reach the Fulham plant. The wharf receives more than 80 000 tpy of aggregates, the equivalent of 4000 lorry loads. This results in much lower CO2 emissions, which is of particular importance in the congested centre of London.

A typical delivery to the Fulham plant will consist of 560 t of aggregates and take place between four and five days each week. This does, however, depend on tidal conditions.
