Record expansion for Cromarty Firth

In Scotland, the port of Cromarty Firth is set to commence work on a major quayside expansion in an investment of around GBP30 million (USD37.97 million).

The news follows the recent award to the port of a GBP10 million (USD12.65 million) contract from Moray East offshore wind farm to become the intermediate port for its 95-turbine development.

The new 218 m quayside and 9 acres (3.64 ha) of laydown area has been designed as an energy and cruise hub and will be completed by 2020. It will not only be able to accommodate large scale renewable, decommissioning, and oil and gas projects, it will also be able to berth the largest cruise ships currently being designed and built.

This will be the second quayside and laydown area built at the port in three years.

Bob Buskie, chief executive of the Port of Cromarty Firth, said: “As a trust port, all of our profits are reinvested in the port’s future development. We believe this investment will be help bring new work to the area for decades to come.

“There is a substantial demand for the services in the port and, even with the large new quayside and laydown area finished in 2016, we still experience capacity issues."
