ABP has announced the appointment of Lex Hanham as Business Development Manager. With over 15 years of experience at the organization, she will be leading projects to drive the UK’s clean energy transition, including Immingham’s Green Energy Terminal and the Humber’s Viking 2 carbon capture initiative.
Ralph Windeatt, ABP Head of Business Development, stated, “Lex brings a wealth of knowledge and skills from her successful time in Southampton and joins us during an exciting period for our pipeline development. Her experience in the ports industry will greatly benefit our current and future customers.”
Speaking of her new role, Lex commented, “I am thrilled to be part of a team shaping the future of our ports, characterized by growth and innovation. Transitioning from the core port business to the dynamic realm of alternative energy is not just a shift in focus; it’s a leap into a future sector where success is measured not just in profits but in the positive change we catalyze for generations to come.”
Projects like Immingham Green Energy Terminal and ABP’s ‘Ready for Tomorrow’ sustainability strategy demonstrate the organization’s commitment to large-scale clean energy infrastructure. The Viking CCS on the Humber, for example, is an important step towards achieving an economic license for the permanent storage of CO2 in the Viking fields. Upon completion, this project has the potential to make a significant contribution to the UK’s sixth carbon budget and unlock private investment for the Humber region.
