John Lawrie launches two new quayside facilities for decom in Scotland

John Lawrie Metals, a decommissioning and metal recycling services provider, has announced two new quayside decommissioning facilities in the North East of Scotland.

John Lawrie is servicing the increasingly important decommissioning industry and is now able to offer full decommissioning services at these locations.

Following the issue of full Waste Management Permits direct to John Lawrie, it means the company now has the capability to receive and process subsea infrastructure and piece small material at both Aberdeen and Montrose Ports, the company said last week.

Focusing on metal processing efficiency and service agility, these new quayside operations will mean the company has the ability to downsize and process material onsite, as well as the potential to ship direct from the Ports with little or no road transportation or haulage required.

According to the company, both sites will have direct quayside access meaning ease of discharge and handover for client materials and will be managed specifically for subsea structure and piece small material returns, offering the decommissioning industry two new locations for landing offshore assets.

By having both the Waste Management and Environmental Authorisations (Scotland) Regulations 2018 Permits in place, the sites are able to accept all types of material produced during a decommissioning campaign.

John Lawrie Metals is handling around 200,000 tonnes of metal annually.
