The Port is reclaiming 9 acres of land from the sea, providing much needed operational land as well as an additional deep water berth.
Since 2006, CFPA have re-invested 76% of net profits back in to the Invergordon Service Base, ensuring that facilities are able to meet the growing needs of the supply chain and its customers. However the Port has long been operating at capacity.
This £25 million investment will help ensure the local supply chain can capitalise on future business opportunities. It will also help to ensure that the Cromarty Firth continues to play a major role in the energy sector.
Reclamation of 9 acres, with a 154m quayside, offering 14m depth alongside
Completion is on target for Summer 2015.
An application for consent was made through Marine Scotland, for this new berth development.
A copy of the application, drawings, together with the Envirnomental Statement presenting an analysis of the environmental implications, were made available for inspection free at: the Port offices and at Invergordon library, Dingwall library and Tain library.
The consultation period for this ended on 30th May.
