Yesterday I attended a consultation in Fairlie Village Hall to discuss the above with the Clydeport Operations Ltd project team.
The aim is to fill in the dry dock at Hunterston PARC and build a platform to enable the servicing of vessels which work in offshore renewables.
It is still “early days.” Formal plans are likely to be submitted in January, with construction – if approved – commencing late next year and the platform becoming operational in 2026.
An Environmental Impact Assessment will be undertaken as part of the process.
As yet the number of jobs in construction and on the site, and the level of investment is yet to be clarified but will be “significant.”
