Ullapool Harbour to receive state-of-the-art protection against the elements

March 23, 2022

Next year, following the award of a £1.2m contract by Ullapool Harbour Trust, visiting yachts, local leisure craft and small fishing vessels will be able to berth in the calm waters of Ullapool harbour, protected by one of our state-of-the-art concrete breakwaters.

Calum MacDougall, our engineering sales manager based in Lossiemouth, Scotland, explains: “We’re delighted to have been awarded the contract to design, manufacture and install the extension to Ullapool’s existing berthing facilities, helping the harbour maximise its commercial potential.

“Supplied with various freeboard heights to accommodate commercial and leisure vessels of different sizes, all berths will be fully serviced with electricity, lighting and water, offering users a stable platform and easy access to their vessel. 

“We’ll also be ensuring the harbour has the ultimate in heavy weather protection, through the provision one of our tried and tested wave attenuating floating breakwaters. We’re looking forward to starting work on this exciting new project later this year, once the new esplanade and Shore Street civil works have been completed.”
