Nigg Energy Park Harbour Dredging & Construction


Global Energy are working to improve the port and berthing facilities with the South Quay Development at Nigg, a strategic location within the Cromarty Firth in Scotland. This major expansion has been to accommodate wind farm vessels for the renewable energy sector together with the existing oil and gas industry.

Scope of Works

This involved the reconstruction of the existing south quay wall over a length of 360m and the construction of a new finger jetty at the western end projecting into the Cromarty Firth.  WM Plant Hire were employed by main contractor McLaughlin & Harvey to assist with marine construction and dredging works.


Using a 65 tonne long reach excavator the sea bed was dredged using the 3D GPS dig system, fill material was placed inside the cofferdam with thousands of tonnes of rock armour placed as part of the breakwater structure.

The selection of the best equipment for the job, together with our highly experienced operators working round the clock ensured these elements of the marine works were completed on schedule.
