Civils appointment for £50M Peterhead Port job

Peterhead harbour

Northern Ireland civil engineer McLaughlin & Harvey and its dredging joint venture partner Boskalis Westminster have won a major contract for the redevelopment of Peterhead Port.

The North East Scotland port will be strengthened and deepened as part of the scheme. The £50M contract entails land reclamation with revetment, widening of the harbour entrance, demolition works and improved services throughout.

Existing quay walls will be realigned and there will also be an increased draft to facilitate larger boats.

The contract has been awarded by Peterhead Port Authority for the Peterhead Scheme 2 and is expected to take approximately 18 months to complete, creating around 100 full-time jobs.

A steel piling system, developed in Scandinavia, will be used for the job. The system has been developed by McLaughlin & Harvey along with the designer, RPS Consulting Engineers.
