Aberdeen South Harbor Quaysides Taking Shape

Image source: Aberdeen Harbor

Aberdeen Harbor has just announced that progress is continuing apace at South Harbor, with 120,000 tonnes of infill material behind the caissons on Dunnottar Quay creating the first operational quay.

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

According to the latest update on the works, the North Breakwater has reached its completed length and over the summer, work will take place on the Crown Wall, which will run along the length of the breakwater to give added protection to the quayside.

To date, 240,000m³ of material has been laid below the water’s surface for the South Breakwater to a length of 600 meters. Before long, this structure will be visible.

When full finished the Dunnottar Quay is to be the 400 meter long east quay with Crathes Quay to be the 175 meter long south quay. Balmoral Quay, the west quay, will be 300 meters long and Castlegate Quay, the north quay, will be 540 meters long.

The £350 million project is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2020.
