Aberdeen Harbour has awarded Macduff Shipyards the contract to build a new workboat. The $1.5m vessel, inclusive of its high-tech survey suite is due for delivery in 2011, and will replace the port’s existing workboat. It will be fitted with twin 350 hp engines, a deck crane and at 147.f ft in length, will be used for general harbour activities including surveying, plough dredging and debris recovery.
 
Ray Shaw, operations director & harbour master at Aberdeen Harbour, said: “Following a competitive tender process we are pleased to award this contract to local supplier Macduff Shipyard. We have an excellent track record of working with the team at Macduff, as fabricators of our pilot boat the Sea Shepherd.

“The new workboat will make an important contribution to the harbour’s capabilities and efficiency of operations. As one of the UK’s busiest ports, our main aim is to continue to invest in providing the very best service and facilities for our customers.”
