Port of Cromarty Firth has invested £25million expanding the Invergordon Service Base.
In 2014 the Port commenced a major reclamation project, to create 9 additional acres of land from the sea and add a further deepwater berth to the Port's existing capabilities.
The enchanced offering at Invergordon Service Base enables our customers to fulfil projects utilising our modern engineering and marine support facilities. The increase in space and the new deepwaer berth has increased the capacity on offer.
The new quay increases the number of deepwater berths available at Invergordon to 5 and increases the overall project land available by a further 9 acres, added to the original 35 acres.
The new quay is 154m long with a minimum water depth of 12m, rising to 14 metres.
The new 45,000m2 of newly constructed project land offers 12.5te/m2.
The berth offers a 30m x 30m heavy lift pad.
The Phase III Development project is part financed by the H&I (HIPP) European Regional Development Fund Programme 2007 to 2013. The Department for Communities and Local Government is the managing authority for the European Regional Development Fund Programme, which is one of the funds established by the European Commission to help local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support local businesses and create jobs.
