Plans for a major £5.2m redevelopment to strengthen and deepen two berths on Montrose port’s north quay are progressing well.

It is anticipated that project to refurbish berths 7 and 8 will go out for tender to contractors at the start of the August with work commencing some stage in October.

The new redevelopment will help ensure the port is well equipped to service the increasingly important oil and gas decommissioning market, as well as the offshore renewables and breakbulk cargo sectors.

The project will also include the provision of a new heavy lift pad to complement other heavy lift facilities on the north quay. In particular, the deeper berths and greater quayside operational working space will make the port an attractive option for companies looking to set up a decommissioning base.

Nik Scott-Gray, Montrose Port Authority chief executive, said: “This ambitious new upgrade programme on the north quay will ensure port users have the best possible facilities and make us well placed to serve a variety of important marine sectors, including oil and gas decommissioning, offshore renewables and general cargoes.

“We offer a high level of flexibility for port users along with great customer service.”
