Aberdeen energy transition
2018 figures show Aberdeen Harbour on the rise Aberdeen Harbour has today announced increased activity levels in 2018 across vessel and cargo tonnage, arrivals and passengers. The growing port saw a 5% rise in vessel tonnage compared to 2017, whilst cargo tonnage and offshore supply vessel tonnage increased by 3% and 6% respectively. The port also reported an increase in larger project vessels numbers, associated with offshore construction and decommissioning. These vessels increased, in terms of vessel tonnage, by 26% in 2018. Matt North, Commercial Director at Aberdeen Harbour Board, said: “This is fantastic news for Aberdeen, and we are greatly encouraged to see our hard work rewarded in 2018. “We embarked upon our ‘bring it back home’ initiative at the start of last year, with the intention of bringing the larger project vessels and other core oil and gas activity back into Aberdeen, and this has proved to be very successful.
