Concrete Batching Facilities
With an on-site quarry with 6.5 million tonnes of quality aggregate reserves and a concrete batching plant, concrete structures can be manufactured on site.
A recent example of this was for the Noble Intrepid. Our on-site quarry provided 2042m3 of concrete to cast 2000 docking blocks in 28 working days, to a concrete spec of C40/50 CEM1 20 S3 + accelerator. This allowed the rig to be supported whilst the jack up legs were lifted from the ground.
For the right investor, there are a number of funding opportunities available for the development of the Port and Dry Dock and the suitability for the manufacture and construction of sub-sea concrete based structures.
At the mouth of Loch Kishorn the Sound of Raasay offers up to 160 metres of water depth. Loch Kishorn offers almost unlimited draft of up to 80 metres depth in the main channel, with three existing quayside berths at 120 metres length and two at 80 metres length. A tidal drop of 4 metres allows the maximum draft at these locations of two at 7.5 metres depth, and one at 10 metres depth.
Kishorn Port also includes a 160 metre diameter dry dock, the dock gates can also be used to berth vessels up to 160 metres in length. At high water both dock gates and the internal dock can provide up to 13.8 metres depth at high tide.
