Aberdeen Harbour is an experienced partner in decommissioning projects and has the expertise and capabilities to facilitate complex onshore disposal processes. Our modern facilities and extensive, established international supply chain make Aberdeen Harbour the natural choice for decommissioning activity.

We have the location, the people and the infrastructure that make Aberdeen Harbour the natural choice for decommissioning activity:

  • Multiple deepwater berths
  • Heavy lift working areas
  • Licensed hazardous waste handling capabilities
  • Agile, flexible solutions
  • Unrivalled local supply chain
  • Diverse, experienced team
  • Full lifecycle support

As an experienced partner in decommissioning projects our expertise and capabilities enable us to support a wide range of decommissioning projects throughout the full lifecycle from P&A to onshore handling, disposal and recycling activity, with all our activity governed by our HSEQ accreditations ISO9001 (2021), ISO 45001 (2018) and ISO 14001 (2018), strengthening our position as one of the safest ports in the UK. Customers benefit from our comprehensive and specialist suite of service providers which include NORM and waste management services, and facilities to reprocess, recycle and reuse materials. 

Our capabilities will increase in 2022 with the opening of our transformative £350 million South Harbour expansion, which will provide additional deepwater berths and significant laydown facilities to support larger projects.  The fully serviced deepwater port, with water depths of nine metres to 10.5 metres CD, will offer significant quayside handling capabilities and unrestricted marine access for a wide array of vessels. The new facilities will incorporate 1,400 meters of deep-water quay with laydown area of 125,000 square meters. The state-of-the-art triple interceptor drainage system will allow the harbour to be independently segregated into 14 working zones, giving customers complete control of their project activities.
