Port History Note

The Romans, who were brilliant engineers, built a Port known as Portus Sistuntiorum, in this location some 2000 years ago. So the Concept is far from new. Only the scale and materials available are different.

The Romans linked their Port with York, taking advantage of the favourable Pennine Gap route through the Pennine Chain. The Northern Loop Transportation Corridor follows a similar route.

The Northern Gateway Port is surrounded by an earth and rock bund wall of sufficient height to protect against storms and rising sea levels for a minimum 100 years. Entrance to the Port is via a shipping channel 20 metres deep, linking with the Morecambe Bay Lune Deep. Access to the Port Area is via Sea Locks, the larger of which is 500m long x 70m wide and 20m deep. This is similar in size to the new Ijmuiden Sea Lock protecting Amsterdam.

The Port is designed to be powered by liquid hydrogen piped from underground Salt Cavern Storage, Preesall.

Hydrogen is generated off-peak from the many offshore turbines located close by.
