Stornoway port project worth £49m to start soon

With the confirmation of a £49m investment package, works are yet to take place soon for the Stornoway Deep Water Terminal project. This will create more than 200 jobs in the Outer Hebrides through the development of new terminals.

Fergus Ewing, who operates as Scotland’s rural economy secretary confirmed about the £49m investment. He further stated that the investment comes from a number of partners seeking to support a range of industries in the Western Isles and strengthen transport links.

A facility for berthing cruise ships up to 360 metres long is a part of the project. It also includes a new deep water berth to cater for larger cargo vessels, and a freight ferry berth.

There will be unloading facilities and berthing for renewable energy components. Industrial processes and decommissioning will be taking place in the development process.
