Piling underway at Montrose Port redevelopment

More than 2.5km of steel casing pipe is being supplied to Van Elle for piling work to upgrade two berths at Montrose Port in Angus, Scotland.

The £7.7M redevelopment to allow the port’s berth seven and eight to accommodate larger vessels is being delivered by main contractor Farrans with Van Elle delivering the piling elements.

Local Montrose firm John Lawrie Tubulars is supplying the 339mm diameter steel pipes for the 37m deep piles for the new 180m long, 30m quayside area.

Van Elle started work on installing the 180 piles using a Junttan PMX22 rig last month and the overall project is due to be completed by Farrans in autumn 2019.
