A joint venture between Boskalis Westminster and McLaughlin & Harvey has begun dredging at Peterhead Harbor.

Overall, the £50 million worth North Harbor development project includes strengthening and deepening of quay walls within the port as well as 430,556sqft land reclamation with revetment, widening of the harbor entrance, and demolition works.

According to the Peterhead Harbor, the development project will fully address the dual need for fishing vessel deep-water berthing in the extensive North Harbor.

In order to allow the inner harbor floors to be dredged from -3.2m to -6.5m chart datum (CD), the existing quay walls are being strengthened using an innovative ‘RD Piling’ solution developed in Scandinavia.

This system has been tailored to suit the specific requirements at Peterhead as a result of close collaboration between McLaughlin & Harvey and RPS Consulting Engineers, Peterhead Port’s design engineers.

Boskalis Westminster will undertake this rock dredging project utilizing its large backhoe dredger, the MP 40.
