NORTH-east contractor Nicol of Skene has been appointed as principal contractor to carry out work as part of the ongoing Aberdeen Harbour Expansion Project (AHEP).
The firm will be responsible for the installation of approximately 3km of new water mains, including all associated civils works, which will connect the new Aberdeen Harbour to the existing Scottish Water supply network and Torry Quay.
The works are on track to commence in mid-April 2021 and will continue until the estimated completion date of November 2021.
Nicol of Skene will also install ducting for an underground communication network which will run alongside the new water main.
Civils works will also include the construction of a shared cycle path and footpath which will head from AHEP, through St Fittick’s Road finishing at North Balnagask Road.
Richard Stott, Nicol of Skene’s managing director, said: “The team at Nicol of Skene are extremely proud to be awarded this key infrastructure project within our local community.
“We anticipate commencing the works in April and look forward to working collaboratively with the project team towards successful delivery”.
