South Harbour Quaysides Taking Shape
Progress is continuing apace at South Harbour, 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. 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.
