A £350 million plan to expand Aberdeen harbour into Nigg Bay is to become a reality after the city’s harbour board decided to press ahead with the development. The new facilities will include 1,400 metres of new quay, with a water depth of up to 10.5 metres and will create an additional 125,000 square metres of lay-down area. The construction contract with its preferred bidder Dragados UK is due to be formalised at a signing ceremony held on 20th December, 2016. Work on the extension, which will provide a facility for oil industry decommissioning work, will begin early in 2017 and is due to be completed in 2020.
