OLA PIER REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT – JULY 2021
The construction works to redevelop the St Ola Pier have now been underway for over twelve months. The works which began in mid-June 2020 are scheduled to be complete in the Autumn of 2021.
The £18.5 million project will improve the pier structure to offer a total of 500 metres of deep-water berthing, with vessels of up to 250 metres length able to berth. The pier offers a depth of 9 metres at chart datum on the outer berth and 7.5 metres on the inner berths. Once completed, the finished project will provide over 9,000 m2 of quayside space including a dedicated heavy lift area.
