Port of Leith in Scotland is strengthening its position in the offshore renewables market with a privately funded investment at the port. This seven-figure investment will see the port add 25ha of land linked to more than 3km of deep water quaysides to its 115ha. Furthermore, with this investment, the skyline of the port will change, with the final stages of the demolition of the Imperial Grain Silo being finished. The port stated that over the last few years, there has been a surge in activity with the energy transition to low carbon. Demonstrating its agility, the port has responded to project needs ranging from utilising the deep water for the storage of offshore wind farm foundation jackets to major project work associated with the subsea elements of the development of offshore windfarms.
