HMS Vengeance and ABP Business Partnerships
Associated British Ports (ABP) is the Statutory and Competent Harbour
Authority for 22 separate ports and harbours located around the UK. Associated
British Ports (ABP) is the UK’s leading ports business, providing
innovative and high-quality port facilities and services to shippers and
cargo owners. One of the country’s busiest and most successful deep-water
ports, ABP Southampton, is the UK’s leading vehicle-handling port, and
has long been the UK’s principal cruise port, with over 370,000 cruise
passengers expected to pass through the port in 2002. Save the Vengeance
Appeal originally forged links with ABP Southampton. ABP
Southampton has offered a berth for VENGEANCE on delivery, at After Buoy
in Southampton Water.
The Vengeance Naval Aviation Heritage Museum venture
would intend to help promote the maritime and port's industry's future
with a centre where current and trainee trainee port staff and maritime
engineers will be able to gain nationally and internationally recognised
qualifications. We hope that the provision of this aircraft carrier facility
will raise the profile of a ABP career path and help to redress the national
shortage of British port woker expertise and maritime engineer skills.
