Peterhead Harbour to Get $68m Worth Upgrades
Peterhead Port Authority (PPA) has announced the awarding of two key contracts for the design and management of its ambitious $68m investment into the town’s harbour. Plans include the deepening of both the Port’s North and South harbours and approaches, from -3.5m to -6.5m, which would allow vessels unrestricted access and berthing in safe, weather-protected inner basins. PPA is also looking to construct an all new fish market on the site of the harbour’s former Greenhill market. At present the Port can only handle 5,500 boxes, but the new facility would hold more than 9,000, whilst enhancing opportunities for the display and management of fish, thus helping fishermen to continue to secure top industry prices.
