UK: DNS Meeting to Discuss Aberdeen Harbour Expansion Plans

Decom North Sea (DNS), the oil and gas decommissioning forum, will host a lunch and learn event to give supply chain companies the opportunity to learn more about a variety of pertinent topics; from crisis communications, to the new developments at Aberdeen harbour.

The event will take place on Tuesday, June 24, at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, Aberdeen, from 12-2pm. This month’s event will include presentations from ABB Consulting, Aberdeen Harbour, Quickflange UK Ltd and ThinkPR.

DNS chief executive Brian Nixon said: “The industry has recognised the opportunities decommissioning presents and with a projected spend of £40.6 billion in the UK waters between now and 2040, this is a time of unprecedented opportunity for the local economy.”

Speaking at the event, Aberdeen Harbour will describe its prospective expansion plans. It will provide details of the proposed deep water facilities which will be able to accommodate the new generation of larger subsea vessels required to support complex projects and decommissioning activities, and its benefits of improved access by road and rail.

Aberdeen Harbour Director Chris Bain, said: “We believe that our proposed development would provide many benefits for our customers, including increased berthing certainty, and the ability to accommodate the larger subsea vessels. By having the capability to accommodate these vessels in Aberdeen, close to the well-established supply chain and subsea centre of excellence, we believe our customers could avoid the cost and risk associated with road transportation of materials to and from alternative ports.”
