The 175 meter-long MV Beltnes arrived into Aberdeen South Harbor on the morning of Wednesday, 29th May, as part of its £350 million South Harbor construction program.

“The Self Discharging Bulk Carrier successfully discharged 35,000 tonnes of fill material behind concrete caissons, as part of the creation of the Dunnottar Quay,” according to their latest release.

The vessel will make seven return trips to South Harbor to complete the Dunnottar and Castlegate Quays.

Dragados UK, principal contractor for the Aberdeen Harbor Expansion Project, last month installed the second of the 22 enormous concrete units that will form the closed quay sections at Aberdeen South Harbor.

These caissons, 50 meters long, 17 meters wide and 16 meters high, have been floated from Cromarty Firth to Nigg Bay, Aberdeen, in a 160-miles journey.

The fill material used behind the caissons has been quarried from Norway and will provide these quays with significant heavy-lift capacity, all designed to support activity associated with the onshore and offshore energy industry.
