Four Drilling Rigs in Nigg Bay, Aberdeen

Aberdeen Harbor said that four drilling rigs, currently located at Nigg Bay, are carrying out Site Investigation Work aimed at providing further information for the Harbor Development Project.

Keith Young, Aberdeen Harbor Board’s Engineering Director, explained: “The four drilling rigs will be carrying out twenty five land based boreholes. Potential construction and dredging activities in the future would be based on the information provided by this work, in conjunction with previously completed boreholes and geophysical surveys”.

The rigs will be on site for approximately eight weeks.

Aberdeen Harbor’s proposed plans to extend the current harbor into Nigg Bay, to the south of the city, are moving forward. Other vital elements of the Board’s feasibility study into this visionary project have also been progressing.

These have included a large-scale Environmental Impact Assessment, an integrated investigation into potential funding streams, and the creation of a development Framework, which has considered the opportunities presented by the potential investment in the new harbor for the wider Nigg, East Tullos and Altens area, in terms of economic development, regeneration and environmental improvements.
