What goes around

comes around. Battleship Wharf remembered as Hughes Bolckow breaker upper of merchant, naval and BATTLEships!
From the Harbour website but I do not expect vessels to come in from breaking up, more like decommissioned bits of metal from structures that will be lifted by sheer legs or something the like operated by ALLSEAS or HEEREMA

Port of Blyth and Thompsons of Prudhoe have announced a partnership that will enhance UK offshore decommissioning capability.
Having been awarded an Environment Agency licence in 2018, the Port has already completed several offshore decommissioning projects but is now in a position to significantly expand its capacity in partnership with one of the UK’s most trusted demolition and decommissioning contractors.
Strategically located on the UK’s east coast, the facility offers a common-user 2.3ha designated site handling up to 50,000 tonnes of materials per year including NORM and is well placed to serve all sectors of the North Sea. An initial investment from the partnership of up to £1m will continue the expansion of the site.
Martin Lawlor, Chief Executive of Port of Blyth, said: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with Thompsons of Prudhoe, a recognised and well respected operator within the sector. We now have the capacity and capability to attract an increasing number of major decommissioning projects to Blyth.”
John Thompson Snr MBE, Chairman of Thompsons of Prudhoe, said: “With Port of Blyth being one of the UK’s major offshore energy hubs and having seen them develop their decom offering over the last couple of years, Thompsons of Prudhoe are looking forward to a productive partnership. This is a natural progression for us having previously decommissioned a number of significant onshore facilities and refineries on behalf of some of the world’s leading oil and gas operators.”
Expansion works will commence immediately with the facility remaining open for business throughout.
