Tulloch takes £16.5M Shetland Islands port job

Tulloch is to construct a new jetty at Holmsgarth North in the Shetland Islands for Lerwick Port Authority.

The L-shaped jetty will cost £16.5M to build and will provide deeper berthing and more working area for the fishing fleet, reports the Shetland Times.

It will extend to 800m, with 10m of water depth alongside.

The outer arm of the L-shape will create a dock sheltering a planned new whitefish market at Mair’s Yard. It will also be suitable for berthing offshore industry vessels.

Tulloch will begin site set-up at Holmsgarth North before Christmas and the main works will start in the new year, with completion scheduled for autumn 2016.

The jetty was designed by consultant engineer Arch Henderson.
