Dinish Island quay extension contract awarded

Major marine piling and land reclamation will be called for under a new €25.5M (£21M) contract awarded to L&M Keating for the expansion of Castletownbere Fishery Harbour Centre in Ireland.

The project, which was designed by RPS, involves construction of a 216m long quay, reclamation of almost 1ha of land, two breakwater structure and deepening of the navigation channel to accommodate larger vessels.

The contract for the work was signed by RPS, L&M and Irish minister for agriculture, food and the marine Michael Creed at a special ceremony at RPS’s Cork office.

Creed said: “This is a very significant investment for the south west and will be a big boost to the Beara Peninsula and West Cork in general. The project will double the workable quay space on Dinish Island in Castletownbere and will enable significant expansion in fish landings, on shore processing and general marine activity at this major port.”

Construction is expected to take 18 months and will be supervised by RPS.
