Peterhead Harbour Deepening

Principal contractor with joint venture partner Boskalis Westminster to carry out strengthening and deepening of quay walls within the port.

Works included the reconstruction and refurbishment of existing quays to the inner harbour, deepening of the harbour to allow larger vessels access, strengthening of existing quays to accommodate the new dredged depths, reconstruction of jetties, entrance widening, and land reclamation to facilitate future development.

The works were undertaken alongside other ongoing works in the harbour carried out by other parties.

Feature of ProjectLive Environment

This major fishing port remained live throughout our works and was subject to 24hour working.

We regularly interacted with all stakeholders, including fishermen and vessel users, whose key concern was to ensure that the harbour and fish market remained open for traffic and whilst avoiding any damage to vessels or stock.

This was managed by a phased approach to the delivery of the works with only short sections of quay taken out of operation at any given time.
