Port’s Vision for the Future 09/10/2012

Cromarty Firth Port Authority (CFPA) have presented a revised vision for Phase 3 of their Port development plans.
This ambitious development was initially revealed earlier this year.  The new site layout proposed now takes into consideration discussions held with representatives of the community and environmental bodies.  The revised layout will still allow the Port to reclaim 8 acres of land from the sea and add a deep water berth.

When asked why the Port has altered its plans, Captain Ken Gray, Chief Executive & Harbour Master of the Port Authority explained “We’ve been undertaking a period of consultation with the local community and environmental bodies and are now responding to the feedback which we have received and carefully considered. “
Ken continues “This is an exciting opportunity for the Port and for Easter Ross.  The Port must expand in order to meet the needs of our customers, in both oil & gas and the renewable sectors, but it also has significant economic benefits.  Once complete, this development should support in the region of 791 full time operational jobs, as well as 177 FTE jobs during the construction phase. “
A series of Public exhibitions are planned for December this year, to allow the local community to have more in depth knowledge and to voice their thoughts.

In the last 7 years, the Port Authority have reinvested 76% of their net profits, which will culminate next month with the completion of Phase 2 of the development.
Captain Gray adds “CFPA look forward in the future to working with the Invergordon community in furthering the economic regeneration of the area.”
