New berth opens in Montrose 

Montrose Port Authority in Scotland has completed the second phase of a quayside refurbishment project. 

Forming part of a 20-year masterplan, the infrastructure improvements increase the capacity of the port and increased the maximum potential size of berthing vessels from 12,000 to 18,000 gross tonnage.

Construction of the common user berth was carried out by civil engineering contractor Farrans and includes a large laydown area and an additional heavy lift pad.

Montrose Port Authroity ceo Tom Hutchison said: “These continue to be exciting times for Montrose Port; the completion of this latest redevelopment phase simply builds upon our reputation as a key hub for both the offshore energy and general cargo market. 

“The additional berth capacity enables us to strengthen and enhance our existing capabilities and further expand the size and type of vessel we can welcome to the port, which is particularly pertinent as we continue to attract a diverse range of clients.”
