BAM Nuttall Nabs ‘Dales Voe South’ Gig
Lerwick Port Authority has commissioned the Scottish business unit of BAM Nuttall as main contractor for an £11.95 million project to extend the quay at Dales Voe South to 130 meters.
Work will begin in the following months, with completion due in April 2016. At peak, BAM expects up to 40 people to be employed directly in the construction of the new facility, with wider benefits spreading to local suppliers and subcontractors.
The extended quay will provide deep-water, versatile berthing and heavy load capacity to take an offshore structure in a single lift, with a substantial, expanded laydown area.
Part of the Dutch construction group Royal BAM, BAM Nuttall specializes in complex marine construction, with a strong track record working around Scotland and on the Western and Northern Isles.
