4,000th accropode for South Harbour

4,000th accropode for South Harbour

The 4,000th accropode for Aberdeen South Harbour has been manufactured at the purpose-built automated factory in Gregness. 

Approximately 9,000 giant concrete accropodes will be made for the South Harbour.  They act as the outer armour for the North and South Breakwaters and will protect the South Harbour from a 1-in-200-year storm.  Each accropode is specifically placed to ensure maximum protection.

The accropodes are being made in the specifically-designed automated factory, which started production in May this year.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the accropode manufacturing and placement process.
