Earlier this month, the Port of Blyth were finally able to welcome students back on to site. Organised by Blyth STEM Hub and supported by the Reece Foundation, the year 12 students were given an engaging presentation at Port Training Services on the Port of Blyth’s position as a major offshore support base and the growing opportunities within the port.
This was followed by an introduction to TEXO by Alan Conway, Managing Director of TEXO Port Services. Alan then led the group on a tour of TEXO’s facilities and the port, where they enjoyed learning about the sea plough and other offshore machinery.
“Great team at TEXO. Not only do they support Port Training Services by utilising our training services, but dedicate their time to helping our STEM initiatives to raise the aspirations of students from across the area to pursue a career in engineering. Invested in the local community, the TEXO team support our local SEN school by helping build fantastic facilities to give access to students of all abilities to learn more about STEM subjects and where these subjects can take them. Thanks to Alan and the team and I wish them well as they expand at the Port of Blyth.”
