© kishornport.co.uk From Energy Voice, again, yesterday, this mysterious, intriguing headline suggests some very good news coming today. I’m writing this before I can see any such announcement.*
However, according to the report under a picture of the massive dock being drained with a view to becoming a working dry dock again, the owners, Kishorn Port Ltd and issued the teaser ‘sleeping giant’ and suggestions of a ‘major jobs announcement.’ I’ll check this out again later today. According to the report:
‘It is expected the move will see the site’s massive dry dock facility in Wester Ross, last used 24 years ago, brought back into operation. Details of today’s announcement were being kept under wraps until this morning and a spokesman for yard owners Kishorn Port Ltd declined to give any further information.’
Kishorn is one of the largest facilities in Europe with obvious potential for work on offshore renewables, oil and gas fabrication and, of course, decommissioning work. The company presumably has evidence of demand in some or all of these sectors. At its peak in the 1970’s, 3 000 worked at the dock.
* It’s wind farm construction and 200 jobs.
