Dragados as Preferred Bidder for Aberdeen Harbor Expansion

The tender process supporting the Aberdeen Harbor’s Expansion Project has taken a significant step forward with the selection of Dragados as its preferred bidder for the main construction contract.

Following a lengthy selection process, which involved an initial five potential tenderers being reduced down to one, Dragados have emerged as the favored principal contractor.

Although this National Planning Framework project still requires the final planning consents from both Marine Scotland and Transport Scotland, currently on program for later this year, the selection of a preferred bidder demonstrates the advanced stage to which the project has reached.” explained Colin Parker, Chief Executive of Aberdeen Harbor Board, “This announcement represents an important milestone in the journey which started almost six years ago for the port authority”. 

What will now follow will be a period of finalizing the contractor’s tender proposals, designed to meet the requirements of Aberdeen Harbor Board. Subject to our Board’s final approval, and once we have obtained all of the planning consents required, we hope to sign the construction contract later this year and for work to commence in 2017,” Colin explained further.

As industry experts, Dragados have a wealth of experience in marine construction and other transport related projects of this scale, and we are looking forward to developing our working relationship with them further,” Colin added.

The development plan will see the Port expand into Nigg Bay, to the south of the existing harbor.
