South Harbour is creating new opportunities in energy, trade, decarbonisation, and tourism.

First Minister Humza Yousaf and Just Transition Secretary Màiri McAllan today (4 April) visited Port of Aberdeen's £400 million South Harbour expansion to hear first hand how the port is supporting Scotland's Just Transition and creating new opportunities in energy, trade, decarbonisation, and tourism.

Senior leaders from the port, Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce, Energy Transition Zone and Opportunity North East met with Mr Yousaf and Ms McAllan to discuss the economic opportunities and challenges facing the region's key industries, such as oil and gas, renewables, and food and drink.

Bob Sanguinetti, Chief Executive of the Port of Aberdeen, said:

“Port of Aberdeen has been at the heart of the nation’s energy industry for more than 50 years and our vision is to become Scotland’s premier net zero port. Our transformational South Harbour expansion will help make that a reality.”

"We have invested more than half a billion pounds in recent decades to enhance our infrastructure. Now even closer public and private sector collaboration is needed to unlock the full potential of the expanded port if we are to lead on the path to net zero."
