Company Overview

Kishorn Port and Dry Dock is a 45 hectare site on the west coast of Scotland with a 160m diameter dry dock with up to 13.8m of water at MHWS over the sill. There is 450m of hard edged quay space and 4.5km2 of in-shore deep water lay down areas for wet stacking. 

The site, formed in the 1970's for the construction of the Ninian Central Platform has benefited from significant investments over the last 24 months with the following improvements being made:

  • Testing and resealing of the dock
  • 1:9 concrete ramp access into the dock floor rated for 50t axle loads
  • New galvanised flood tunnels c/w fendering
  • Cathodic protection on the sheet piles
  • Self-sufficient pumping system & associated pump house
  • Fibre broadband ducting

 The site is ideally located for decommissioning from the North Sea and further afield, with the following attributions:

  • Load bearing on dry dock floor of 200,000 tonnes
  • 80m deep channel in Loch Kishorn
  • 100m+ deep sheltered berths in Raasay Sound
  • On-site quarry with concrete batching facility and excellent aggregates
  • Stevedoring and transport facilities
  • Extensive hard standings and lay down areas
  • Contained area within dry dock
  • Planning permission for oil and gas related activities and decommissioning.

KPL is currently working with SEPA to obtain the relevant “authorisation” for Decommissioning floating structures & recycling where possible, with zero waste and circular economy, as part of an “Integrated authorised framework”
