"Our Vision is to be a major, commercially successful and sustainable Trust Port, integral to the North East of Scotland’s transport infrastructure and providing an increasingly significant contribution to its economic growth."
A Trust Port is an independent statutory body, created by an Act of Parliament. As such, it is not controlled by a local authority, nor is it a private business. Instead, it is run by an independent board, for the benefit of its stakeholders, and governed by its own local legislation.Read More
Aberdeen Harbour Board is anticipating the arrival the Fugro Seacore jack up rig, Aran 120 into Nigg Bay, as part of the Aberdeen Harbour Expansion Programme feasibility study. It will carry out further marine bore holes, designed to provide additional information on the geological make-up of the area.
"The data, provided by the Aran 120 will be invaluable in refining our harbour design and business case. The more information we have about the geological characteristic of the area, the greater accuracy we can apply to our potential dredging, breakwater and quayside design and construction," explained Keith Young, engineering director at Aberdeen Harbour.
The Aran 120 is likely to be operating in the Bay from end of September for approximately three months.
Aberdeen Harbour is one of the UK’s busiest ports. A world leading marine support centre, it is the principal port for the energy sector in Western Europe and serves a number of industries as the main commercial port in the North-East of Scotland.
With trading links to more than 40 countries worldwide, Aberdeen Harbour generates in excess of £1.5billion GVA annually.
As a Trust Port, it invests all profits into further development, amounting to more than £35million in the last five years.
