Fraserburgh Harbour Area Power Cable Project

As the previous electricity supply to the wider harbour area in Fraserburgh was inadequate and was having adverse effects on businesses wishing to expand, inhibiting development of green field and brown field sites and preventing the harbour from being able to offer electric hook up to vessels berthing here the installation of the new cable has addressed all these issues. Funding for the project was been obtained from Fraserburgh Harbour Commissioners, Scottish Enterprise, Aberdeenshire Council and Marine Scotland. Pelagic vessels and whitefish vessels, which previously did not have the ability to plug into shore power, are now able to access shore power and switch off their diesel engines. Should you wish to discuss any aspect of the project or the provision of power please contact the Harbour Office.
