Harbour infrastructure development update

The latest addition to Lerwick Harbour’s deep-water infrastructure is
nearing completion and, with continuing high levels of offshore industry
activity predicted, is expected to go into immediate use when available in
the fourth quarter.

At Greenhead Base, the new Berth 7 will be 100-metres long and has been
dredged to 9 metres water depth. The development is another example of the
opportunities created by Lerwick Port Authority’s Ł12 million dredging and
land reclamation scheme which improved access and deepened berths, opening
the door to further expansion of facilities and the arrival of larger
vessels.

Completion is expected in October this year.
