Cromarty Firth Port Authority (CFPA) have just announced that a Highland firm has won the environmental impact assessment contract for the next stage of their major port expansion plan.
Environmental consultancy firm Affric was awarded the contract after successfully completing a comprehensive tender process. Set to take 3-4 months to complete, this is a major win for a company which was only established 6 months ago.
The exciting Port expansion plans will ultimately see 8 acres of land reclaimed from the sea and the addition of a deep water berth to the existing Invergordon Service Base.
Captain Ken Gray, Chief Executive & Harbour Master at the Port comments “I am delighted that a local firm have been successful in their bid to undertake this contract, demonstrating the economic benefits a project of this size can deliver to a region. Initial environmental scoping took place over the last year and the commissioning of the environmental assessment is the next stage in this exciting project.”
