Port of Cromarty Firth (PoCF) said in its latest release that Roadbridge UK Ltd has won the contract to construct the new £30 million Energy and Cruise Hub.

The hub will create an estimated 16 new full-time jobs through the construction and operation phases; many of which will be in the Highlands and Islands.

Commenting the latest news, Bob Buskie, Chief Executive of the Port of Cromarty Firth, said: “This is a hugely complex job with a very tight schedule, so we are delighted to be working with Roadbridge. They won this contract against very stiff competition from six other leading national and international contractors.”

“Their team is totally committed to ensuring the Port’s communities benefit from this build in line with our own Trust Port philosophy. It is a hugely exciting time for the Port and we look forward to working with Roadbridge on this build to ensure it is ready for the Moray East windfarm project in 2020.”

The work will start in January 2019 with the construction of a 218m long quayside with steel piles, construction of a new revetment (retaining wall) and nine-acre land reclamation.

Work is expected to be completed by Spring 2020.
