Increasing the berthing capacity of Torry Quay.

Phase 2 works included the demolition and reconstruction of Texaco Quay, Repair Berth, 1600T Slipway, Lead Inn Jetty and Maitland’s Quay.

Following on from the completion of phase 2, we were appointed as Principal Contractor for phase 3 of the redevelopment works.


Phase 3 consisted of the construction of a new 135m quay wall across the existing River Dee Dock, demolition works, dredging, infilling of the dock with reclaimed dredged material and imported stone material, concrete paving, and all associated quay furniture and service works. As well as the construction of two new LV substations.

Our works were completed close to the existing live Aberdeen Harbour channels, operational warehouses, fuel tank stores and operational areas supporting the oil industry. We programmed our works to ensure that they did not disrupt either maritime traffic or landside operations.
