Highland quayside investment gives boost to jobs in region

A multi-million-pound investment to develop a port in the Highlands of Scotland is expected to create around 140 jobs, and boost the energy and tourism sectors in the region.

The Port of Cromarty Firth (PoCF) board announced £30m funding towards the quayside expansion, which is expected to be completed by 2020.

The quayside will act as an energy and cruise hub and will be able to accommodate large-scale renewable, decommissioning and oil & gas projects. It will also be able to berth the largest cruise ships currently being designed and built.

It will be the second quayside and laydown area to be built by the Port in the last three years.

Bob Buskie, PoCF CEO, said the new investment would help bring new work to the area for decades to come: “There is a substantial demand for the services in the Port and, even with the large new quayside and laydown area finished in 2016, we still experience capacity issues.

“This new energy and cruise hub will help us resolve these problems and open up the Port to being able to accommodate large-scale projects from across all sectors.”
