NUSRAT Ghani MP, the UK Government Maritime Minister, has welcomed the £350m investment by Aberdeen Harbour in a new facility that will open up new opportunities for renewables and decommissioning around the North Sea.

Visiting the port yesterday (6 February 2020), Ms Ghani was given a tour of the existing North Harbour and briefed in detail on the South Harbour project which is currently being built.

Nusrat Ghani said: “I was delighted to visit Aberdeen today to see the progress being made on the transformational development of the South Harbour.

“The maritime industry is at the heart of the UK’s economy and, as the principal port for the energy sector in Western Europe, Aberdeen Harbour is no exception. We are committed to supporting our world-class industry to continue to thrive.”

Michelle Handforth, Chief Executive of Aberdeen Harbour Board, said: “It was an honour to host the minister today and we are grateful for her support on our South Harbour investment. The evolution of the UK’s energy mix opens up a world of possibilities. We are poised to be a major catalyst in that, supporting the regional and national economy for decades to come.”
