Peterhead PORT AUTHORITY
elcome to Peterhead Port Authority’s ﬁrst handbook heralding the beginning of the UK’s newest Trust Port, occasioned by the merger of the former Peterhead Harbour Trustees and the Peterhead Bay Authority. The combination of the port’s assets has come at a time of strong growth in the oil sector and record price returns in the ﬁshing. Both sectors have witnessed immediate beneﬁts through improved ﬂexibility as regards available quay space and conducting their operations in a climate of single administration. This has improved the efﬁciency of port calls in terms of turnaround time, cost and management. The new Authority has worked tirelessly to ensure a seamless
change for their customers and staff. Harbour maintenance has been a top priority in ensuring a structurally sound, sustainable and safe working environment. Reinvestment in the ﬁsh processing units it leases out and purchasing strategic sites have assisted in underpinning one of the port’s primary objectives of maintaining its well earned status as the country’s premier ﬁshing port. With landings in excess of £107 million, split evenly between demersal and pelagic species, the Authority is constantly vigilant to the diverse and changing needs of this industry. Amongst its plans in the near future is a £20 million major civil engineering infrastructure project that will deliver additional deep and sheltered berthing with a signiﬁcant area of back up landside. This
development will form the central axis around which a Master Plan blue print will emerge which graphically details the strategic medium and long-term objectives of the port. As a Trust Port all of the company’s proﬁts are reinvested to manage, maintain and support this Master Plan and therefore in turn our businesses, stakeholders and customers. We look forward to a very bright future, secure in the knowledge that the port has sound governance, is a safe and environmentally conscious concern and embraces the opportunity the future holds for the port, the town and those we serve.

N historic decision to bring the port operations of Peterhead under one single Authority has delivered a host of beneﬁts to port users and stake holders, and opened an exciting new chapter for the Port of Peterhead. Peterhead already holds a leading position in Europe for both demersal and pelagic ﬁshing and as the most easterly deepwater port on the Scottish mainland it plays a critical role in servicing the busy North Sea oil industry.
By combining the strengths of the former Peterhead Bay Authority and Peterhead Harbour Trustees, the new Peterhead Port Authority can further build its activities in these two key sectors whilst continuing to explore other market opportunities. Peterhead now offers a much larger “pool” of berths and other resources, so that facilities can always be found for potential users. The port is being marketed with a common identity and, of course, there are clear cost savings from combining and sharing functions such as
operational and marine services, pilotage, vessel trafﬁc services (VTS) and port control. The creation of one trust responsible for the operation, management and development of the whole port formally took place on January 1, 2006. Integration of the two different organisations will be largely complete by early 2007, when Peterhead Port Authority is due to relocate to newly built ofﬁces next to the port control buildings at West Pier. At present, the £6+ million turnover of the Peterhead Port Authority is split fairly

“As a trust port, our activities must be beneﬁcial to the whole community – that is imperative,” he says. “The port has always been a major employer and the town is heavily dependent upon our industry and activity. “For every ﬁsherman that went to sea, it was said there were eight to ten jobs ashore. And on the other side, the oil-related sector as a major employer is equally important. “Merging the two port authorities has brought enormous advantages. On the marine side, we have a much broader range of facilities at our disposal, where one side or the other may previously have had to turn away work. Now we have a bigger base to operate from and more ﬂexible quay space and integrated services. “The merger also means that the highs and lows of the different sectors can be ironed out”. The next step, says Mr Mackie, is to take stock of where the port is in terms of the services it offers and facilities available and consider the way forward with future developments. “There are clearly some crucial decisions to be made in the coming years. We must look at where we want to be in 10 to 20 years’ time. We must use what we have and look for new avenues in order to generate revenue for the port and the community.’ Peterhead is a trust port, thus all of its proﬁts are re-invested back into the port to manage, maintain and develop its facilities.

ETERHEAD Bay Harbour lies between Keith Inch to the north and Salthouse Head to the south. Its sheltered waters are protected by the North Breakwater extending 400 metres south-south-west from Keith Inch, and by the South Breakwater extending
750 metres north-east from Salthouse Head. The port offers a deepwater entrance and berthing to a maximum depth of 14 metres. One of Peterheadâ€™s key strengths is its unique ability in north-east Scotland to accommodate and offer safe facilities to very large vessels, which do not have to wait for
high water. The largest vessel to be accommodated at the port so far is the 127,553 dwt tanker Kitty Knutsen, which has called several times in the past two years. The portâ€™s wide range of facilities is split between two areas to the north and south of the harbour. General berthing is available

HUGE advantage of merging the two former port authorities into one is the ability to plan ahead – as a single unit. For the ﬁrst time, a common strategy and master plan for the long-term development of Peterhead can now be formulated to address the port’s signiﬁcant expansion plans. Halcrow Group were
appointed to look at the present and future development potential of the port and draw up priorities for a major development. As part of this work, the consultants spoke to the full compliment of clients and potential port users across the whole spectrum of activity, to establish how the use of the port is likely to change over the coming years: i.e. will
sector vessels get larger or smaller? Will their numbers increase or decline? How much deepwater berthing, quayside space or warehousing will be required? How will increasing demand for storage or space for major fabrication work be met? Is there an opportunity to develop the roll-on/roll-off berth for which there have been several enquiries in recent years? Are
FUTURE there opportunities to handle container services? Does the port have a future in offshore oil and gas decommissioning? The result of the consultation exercise afforded the Board a clear way forward and assisted the discussion on which infrastructure developments to prioritise in order to meet as many of the requirements as possible. An investment of around
£25 million is envisaged to address the four key areas of ﬁshing, oil, fabrication and general cargo. The port Authority recognises this unique opportunity whereby it begins its new role with essentially a blank canvass and the utmost care must be exercised to ‘get it right ﬁrst time’. Any development undertaken by the Board will
be cognisant of the need to phase its progress to allow for any unforeseen hiccups in their business operations. The proposed development incorporates 200 metres of sheltered, deepwater berthing with adjacent working area of 13,000 square metres. The technical and economic viability of the project is being tested through a number of studies.

QUAY FACTS SOUTH BASE The South Base acts as the centre of ASCO’s Peterhead operations. It has a total of 11 berths across the South Base Quay, South Breakwater and Princess Royal Jetty. The South Base Quay has ﬁve berths including Berth 8 which incorporates a 500 tonne heavy lift pad and is suitable for roll-on/roll-off use. All major chemical contractors are represented at the base for the supply of mud and cement materials. Several have quayside facilities for the storage and distribution of their products. Water is
available for loading at up to 100 tonnes per hour, and four vessels can load at the same time. Loading, ofﬂoading and bunkering can all be carried out at the same time. The granite-built South Breakwater provides four berths. Fuel, fresh water and bulk chemicals and cement are available by road tanker. The berths are used by commercial shipping and as general layby facilities. The South Base was designed from the start to enable the fast and efﬁcient turnround of
vessels supplying and servicing the offshore oil and gas sector. It offers both covered and open storage; its berths are protected by purpose-made Balmoral fenders.
of 14 metres. The breakwater also incorporates a purpose-built rig mooring system designed to accommodate drilling rigs and platforms.Yokohama fenders are available for deployment when required.Vessels of up to 250 metres in length and 96,000 dwt have been handled at the breakwater. The North Breakwater is protected by a wave wall which was constructed in 2001 and greatly improved availability of berthing in poor weather. The breakwater has been used by a number of cruise ships calling at the port so that
passengers visits to local attractions is more efﬁciently handled. The North Base Jetty berth 18 was refurbished in 2003 and a new fender system installed.
NORTH BASE The North Base is also operated by ASCO and provides a wide range of services for the construction and hook-up sectors of the offshore industry. The base offers heavy crane capacity, deepwater berthing, open storage and ready access to engineering and fabrication services. Three berths are available at the North Breakwater and there is an additional berth at the North Base Jetty. The North Breakwater, like the South Breakwater, is of granite construction. It has a 17 metre wide working area and minimum depth alongside
TANKER JETTY The Tanker Jetty was originally designed to accommodate oil tankers of up to 50,000 dwt, with a draft of 11.5 metres and length of 280 metres, delivering fuel oil to Peterhead Power Station. The Tanker Jetty berth is also used for the servicing of North Sea supply vessels, diving support vessels, survey vessels and
cruise ships. It is available for vessel repair and maintenance, and also used for other activities such as crew changes. The jetty is regularly used for demonstrating or testing remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and other equipment, and accommodates offshore rigs for IRM and mobilisation work. Fresh water is available at the jetty.
PRINCESS ROYAL JETTY The Princess Royal Jetty was built just over 10 years ago to meet increasing demand for berthing of offshore oil and gas support vessels. The 170-metre-long jetty has three berths with depths of up to 7 metres, all serviced with fuel and water. Berths 2 and 3, on the eastern side, are operated by ASCO within the South Base. Berth 1, on the western side,
is operated by Peterhead Port Authority. It has 3,200 square metres of surfaced storage area which is available for the handling of bulk and general cargoes, including fertiliser, grain, peat and frozen ﬁsh. A Border Inspection Post is located at the Princess Royal Jetty where there is also a weighbridge and sampling gantry for use in handling grain or fertiliser in bulk.
A New Chapter Ahead QUAY FACTS ALBERT QUAY Completed at cost of £18 million in 1991, Albert Quay, including East Quay, provides 340 metres of all-weather deepwater berthing for larger whiteﬁsh and pelagic ﬁshing vessels. It is also used for handling bulk cargoes, oil imports and other trades. Sheltered deepwater berthing and heavy lift capability make Albert Quay one of the best facilities in northeast Scotland for project cargo. Quayside fabrication projects can also
be accommodated. Albert Quay also provides additional capacity for the oil industry, including diving support vessels. It has 9 metres water depth and the quay is 30 metres wide. East Quay is situated at the east end of Albert Quay. A processing factory, freezing facilities and a cold store are located on the quay and large volumes of pelagic ﬁsh landings take place in this area. A weighbridge and grain sampling gantry is also available.
MERCHANTS QUAY Merchants Quay is one of the Port Authority’s most recent investments. Built in 2000 directly opposite Albert Quay. It offers 200 metres of berthing for ﬁshing vessels discharging into the new ﬁsh market
and an additional 60 metre ﬁnger jetty allowing berthing on both sides. The ﬁnger jetty is used principally by pelagic vessels. Water depths are up to 6.2 metres at the quay and up to 9 metres at the ﬁnger jetty.
SOUTH HARBOUR South Harbour is a 350 metre working quay with minimum depth of 3 metres. Deeper drafted vessels can enter on high water spring tides. The maximum length of vessel which can enter South Harbour is 92 metres.
A ﬂake ice factory is located on the east side of South Harbour, while the Port Control Tower and harbour administration ofﬁces are situated on West Pier at the entrance to South Harbour.
NORTH HARBOUR North Harbour is entered from South Harbour through a junction canal (Queenie Brig) which is spanned by a lifting bridge restricting vessels to a 10.5m beam and has 720 metres of quay. The port’s ship repair
facilities, including the shiplift and covered repair berth, are located in Alexandra Basin within North Harbour. The water depth is between 2.7 and 3.0 metres Chart Datum.
PORT HENRY HARBOUR Accessed via North Harbour, Port Henry Harbour offers 740 metres of quay with water depths varying from two to three metres Chart Datum. The ship repair slipway
capable of handling four vessels up to 30 metres long, and 7.2 metres beam is located here, which is also home to a tube ice factory and a number of engineering workshops.
S the most easterly deepwater port on the Scottish mainland, Peterhead has played a very important role in the development, logistics, servicing and maintenance of the North Sea’s offshore industry. The port is close to the major oil and gas ﬁelds of the Northern and Central North Sea – and in response to this
favourable location, a major logistical support base has grown up at Peterhead. The ever-increasing price of crude oil has ensured that activity in the North Sea has remained buoyant in recent years. Peterhead has been attracting oil support vessels in record numbers, by offering deep and sheltered berthing, fast turnrounds, ample quayside space and facilities for mobilisation, onshore
storage, heavy lifts and fabrication work. In 2005 Peterhead handled 1,700 calls by offshore support vessels, most of them measuring 70 to 80 metres in length. A total of 16 berths across two purpose-built oil support bases meet the very tough demands of the offshore sector – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Separately to the bases,
A New Chapter Ahead OIL
ROLE Albert Quay is also an excellent facility for accommodating the large offshore and diving support vessels as is the Tanker Jetty on occasions. ASCO, the leading supplier of logistics services to operators in the North Sea, uses Peterhead as its main logistics hub. The company has invested in upgrading and improving its facilities at the port and continues to secure new contracts, hosting many major clients.
ASCO has many years of experience in providing managed supply chain solutions to the international oil and gas sector and other related industries. Its key services include logistics, fuels, lubricants, chemical distribution and waste management and environmental services. Although it is now an international operating company, ASCO has always had its roots in Scotland â€“ it was originally founded in Aberdeen,
40 years ago. Today, its Peterhead base is a well-established facility that has served the Central and Northern North Sea for more than quarter of a century. ASCO recently demonstrated its commitment to the port with a ÂŁ750,000 investment in the redevelopment of its main warehousing complex at the South Base, and more investment is on the way.

ETERHEAD is renowned and accredited as the UK’s largest whiteﬁsh port and it is also in the top league in European terms. Despite some tough years, with the much-publicised challenges of quota cuts and the enforced decommissioning of ﬁshing vessels, that reputation remains as strong as ever. The port has successfully diversiﬁed to make up for a lower volume of whiteﬁsh, handling larger volumes of pelagic ﬁsh and langoustines (shellﬁsh). The result was a record year in 2006, when the total value of fresh ﬁsh handled through Peterhead was the highest ever, at over £100 million. Half of this was pelagic species, mainly herring and mackerel, and the rest was whiteﬁsh, including cod, haddock, coley
and monkﬁsh, and also shellﬁsh. As well as its leading position in whiteﬁsh, Peterhead is now the UK’s number one pelagic ﬁsh port, overtaking Shetland. Fish values handled at the port continue to climb, and with consumers ever more aware of the value of ﬁsh in their diet, there is strong demand from buyers for good quality fresh ﬁsh, which helps to keep prices high. Landing the ﬁsh is one thing, processing it is a huge industry that needs highly specialist staff and facilities. Peterhead’s modern chilled ﬁshmarket, ﬁsh processing centres, cold stores and freezing plants all help to maintain top-quality ﬁsh landings. The sector is also supported by a broad network onshore with icemaking operations trawler management, ﬁsh selling agents,
ship repair services and engineering companies. During the past 20 years there has been signiﬁcant investment in state-of-the-art facilities and support services to meet the needs of the ﬁshing industry at Peterhead. This has included providing more deepwater quayside, building a large, new temperature controlled ﬁshmarket, and investing in a Syncrolift with covered ship repair facility. A few years ago, £70 million worth of whiteﬁsh was landed every year at Peterhead. That may have been knocked back by extraneous circumstances as the ﬁgures show, the growth in the pelagic catch has compensated and the port continues to manage and invest in this resource. Ongoing investments in processing facilities and increasing capacity at the port,
THE FISHING INDUSTRY
Peterheads ﬁshing industry consists of three basic categories of species landed, - Demersal, Pelagic and Shellﬁsh
The landings apportioned as follows (2006) Demersal - 40% Volume, £52,353,000 Value Pelagic - 57% Volume, £49,072,000 Value Shellﬁsh - 3% Volume, £6,301,000 Value
Demersal Landings, otherwise known as whiteﬁsh consist of: Haddock 39%, Cod 20% Whiting 10% Flatﬁsh 7% Monk 7% Coley 6% All others 11%
Pelagic Landings, otherwise called oily ﬁsh consist of: Herring - 31% Volume, 17% Value Mackerel - 69%Volume, 83% Value
Shellﬁsh Landings are almost all Nephrops

SERVICE FOR A SAFE
EFFICIENT HARBOUR A
S the statutory harbour, pilotage and conservancy Authority, Peterhead Port Authority is responsible for ensuring the safe and efﬁcient operation of Peterhead Harbour, Bay and outer limits. That means coordinating the needs – and movements – of the largest oil tankers or jack-up rigs, offshore supply vessel calls, trawlers that need to land ﬁsh around the clock, grain and fertiliser ships, all making use of more than
3,500 metres of quayside. The leisure craft making their way to and from the marina are also part of the equation. For the port operations team, navigational safety, security and environmental issues are the top priorities, but at the same time commercial shipping and offshore operators require an efﬁcient, speedy and reliable service. Even before merging into one body, the port authorities of Peterhead had combined Port Control operations and worked together to produce the Port of Peterhead Marine
Safety Plan according to the requirements of the Port Marine Safety Code. The Port Authority is also responsible for ensuring all requirements are met for compliance with the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code, which came into effect in July 2004. Since the merger of the two former port authorities, a new Port Facility Security Plan has been drawn up for the whole of Peterhead Port and approved by Transec, the Department for Transport’s
