Port busy in pre-Christmas period

20th December 2012

The Port of Inverness has had a busy period in the lead up to Christmas.  Following on the success of welcoming their inaugural wind farm cargo last month, the port has enjoyed further success with part of the machinery bound for the Rothes extension using the port recently.  The Oceanic (pictured) arrived from Esbjerg with the wind farm cargo.  In addition the port has also been busy handling other cargoes including animal feed, road salt, timber as well as fuel oil for onward distribution throughout the Highlands.

Commenting, Sinclair Browne Chief Executive said, “We have been exceptionally busy over recent weeks across all sectors that benefits not only our regular port users but the wider Highland Economy as well.  The port is one of the main trading gateways for the Highlands and this level of activity is very welcome at this time of year.  It is also pleasing to see another wind farm cargo following on so quickly from the initial one in October.”
