Port of Dundee Appoints Southbay for Quayside Development

Following a detailed tender process, Forth Ports, owner of the Port of Dundee, has appointed Southbay Civil Engineering to deliver one of the largest investments in the history of the port.

“Forth Ports is investing more than £10 million to create a new quayside with an industry-leading “heavy lift” capability, coupled with a significant onshore operational area at the port,” the company said in its latest announcement.

Southbay Civil Engineering has been awarded the contract to design and build the quayside in 2017.

Southbay are experts in their field and have previously worked on other projects at the port including Prince Charles Wharf and Princess Alexandra Wharf, according to Forth Ports.

The contract began in February and the work is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.

This privately funded investment will result in the development of the quayside at the East end of the port, connecting to the existing Prince Charles Wharf.

Upon completion, the quayside will be 200m longer and will be one of the strongest quaysides in Scotland with an ultra-heavy lift pad at one end, the company said.
