Lerwick Harbour Demonstrates Increased Capacity (UK)

The oil and gas industry has continued to take full advantage of Lerwick Harbour’s expanded deep-water infrastructure which helped attract increased traffic in 2013.

The number of oil-related vessels calling jumped 9.6% to 683, compared to 2012, with the tonnage up 28% to 3.8 million gross tonnes and the cargo handled by 36% to 189,090 tonnes.

Sandra Laurenson, Lerwick Port Authority’s Chief Executive, said: “In a very busy year, our investment in enhanced facilities again paid off. On top of regular traffic, the port handled various projects demonstrating the capacity of the deep-water harbour, including storing and transhipping modules weighing up to 450 tonnes for the Shetland Gas Plant. The outlook is positive for the foreseeable future and we are progressing further developments to maximise the opportunities in various sectors.”
