New £16.5 Million Quay Opens in Lerwick

The Lerwick Port Authority said in its latest release that the biggest expansion yet to service port users at their harbor is officially opened today.

The £16.5 million quay will be named Mair’s Pier by Shetland MSP Tavish Scott when he unveils a new sign before invited guests, including port users, stakeholders and others.

“Lerwick Port Authority has, through the decades, invested in Shetland’s future. New quays, facilities and deeper, sheltered water reflect the needs of larger vessels, the ever-changing oil and gas industry and the importance of seafood to Shetland and the wider Scottish and UK economy,” said Scott.

The project involved land reclamation, construction of an 804-meter deep-water L-shaped quay, and demolition of a smaller jetty and included creating a working area over 1.5 hectares for the fishing fleet and oil vessels.

The outer arm creates a dock which will shelter the new market, with construction planned to start this year.
