UK: Aberdeen Harbour Board Prepares Dredging Plan

Aberdeen Harbour Board Prepares Dredging Plan

Aberdeen Harbour Board has announced early information about widening and deepening the harbour navigation channel in order to accommodate the latest generation of vessels servicing the oil & gas and renewables industries, and infilling of the River Dee Dock with a view to creating an extra 20,000m2 of operational space.

Aberdeen Harbour is a world class port annually handling around 5 million tonnes of cargo, valued at approximately £1.5 billion, for a wide range of industries.

With versatile facilities, competitive charges and diversity of traffic, it serves Scotland’s third city and an extensive hinterland. Centre of activity for the offshore oil and gas industry’s marine support operations in North-west Europe, it is also:

– Principal commercial port in Northern Scotland,

– An international port for general cargo, roll-on/roll-off and container traffic,

– Principal mainland port for freight, passenger, vehicle and livestock services to Orkney and Shetland,

– A major centre for forest product imports and finished paper exports,

– A gateway for agricultural products and supplies,

– An important fishing port, serving a local processing industry,

– A marshalling point for exports of oilfield equipment,

– A port of call for cruise ships,

– One of the busiest Trust Ports in Britain.
