Work has commenced on the £7.5m Montrose Berth 7 & 8 Reconstruction project, following Farrans’ successful project award last month.
The project is set to be completed in Autumn 2019.
Farrans has a long-standing relationship with Montrose Port Authority, having carried out more than £13m worth of marine work for the Client in the past 7 years.
In 2013-14, Farrans carried out the Montrose Berth 6 Renewal project, whilst in 2011, Farrans completed the £8m Montrose Deep Water Berth project – a technically challenging job involving the removal of an old, collapsed berth.
Following these successes, a number of the experienced team will now venture back to the North East Scotland location to complete the Berth 7 & 8 reconstruction.
The project includes the design and construction of a new quay wall, approximately 180m in length, including a 30m wide concrete hardstanding area. Works also include utilities, with service ducting and quayside furniture installation.
Brian McCool, Farrans Contracts Manager, said the team is looking forward to getting started on the exciting new project.
“Having worked with Montrose Port Authority for some years, we are looking forward to engaging with them once again and working closely with the local supply chain in order to deliver a quality service,” he said.
“Farrans is proud to have a strong portfolio of experience across the UK marine sector and we will bring this breadth of technical knowledge and know-how to the job through our talented personnel”.
The project is now underway.
