Aberdeen South Harbour 2021 wrap up VIDEO
Remarkable progress has taken place at the Aberdeen Harbour Expansion Project in 2021, and all marine-based activities at the project are now complete.
Construction of two critical structures – the South Breawkater and the Crown Wall – has finished, and all 22 caissons are in place.
The last of the 9,000 accropodes has been made, and the remaining accropodes will be placed along the North Breakwater in the coming weeks.
In 2022, work will continue to build the quaysides, with the provision of service trenches and other utilities.
The £350 million South Harbour expansion is the largest marine infrastructure project underway in the UK.
When fully finished in October 2022, the new harbour will feature the 400 meter long Dunnottar Quay (east quay) was well as the 175 meter long Crathes Quay (south quay). Balmoral Quay, the west quay, will be 300 meters long and Castlegate Quay, the north quay, will be 540 meters long.
