Forth Ports

The Port of Dundee is the most northerly port owned by Forth Ports. The Port is strategically located on the east coast of Scotland, midway between Aberdeen and the central belt.

Forth Ports recently announced an invested of £10 million to upgrade the quay side to allow heavy lift operations at the port. The port’s 300m quayside has a minimum water depths of 9m (LAT) and weight-bearing capacity of 20 tonne/m2 (80 tonne/m2 heavy lift pad in centre) and offers a laydown area of up to 60 acres.

When added to the onsite services of OM, Colletts and Motive it equips the port and the partners to be an ideal staging and marshalling location.
