Aberdeen Harbour has welcomed the longest vessel to visit the port in its history, as part of its £350 million South Harbour construction. The 175 meter-long MV Beltnes arrived into South Harbour on the morning of Wednesday 29th May. 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.
The vessel will make seven return trips to South Harbour to complete the Dunnottar and Castlegate Quays. 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.
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, but run by an independent board for the benefit of its stakeholders, and governed by its own local legislation.Read More
