Latest Project Activity

We welcomed the first commercial vessel - Subsea 7’s Seven Atlantic dive support vessel - to Aberdeen South Harbour on Saturday 2 July, as construction continues at pace. The Seven Atlantic’s arrival marked the ‘soft start’ to operations at Aberdeen South Harbour, which can now accommodate vessels at a complete section of Dunnottar Quay which is 400m long, 30m wide and has a berth depth of -10.5m.

A phased implementation of operational services is now underway, with mooring and basic stevedoring currently offered. These capabilities will develop further in the coming weeks and months. Dunnottar Quay, Crathes Quay and Castlegate Quay will be complete and operational by the end of October 2022, and construction of the major port expansion project will conclude in May / June 2023 when the remaining Balmoral Quay is brought into service.

"The knowledge, skill and innovation that is going into every element of construction is truly amazing, and I am very proud of everyone who is involved in this monumental project. The expansion of Port of Aberdeen will open a world of possibilities for our customers and port users, while radically growing Scotland’s maritime industry and international shipping potential.”
