£1.5million investment made into Montrose Port
Scotland’s Montrose Port Authority, has received a £1.5million Ports Mode Shift Grant from the Scottish Government which will support the development of two new quaysides.
Following on from a period of significant investment for Montrose Port Authority, the funding feeds into the Port’s strategic growth plans which will allow larger cargo vessels to dock in Montrose.
The Grant will support the development of two new North quaysides – berths seven west and eight. This will increase the Port’s capacity, depth alongside and associated utilities work, which in turn will increase the maximum potential size of berthing vessels from 12,000 to 18,000 deadweight tonnage.
The latest investment is expected to secure ongoing employment in the Port, with changes to the quaysides expected to be complete by summer 2019.
