SECTOR: PORTS & HARBOURS
EnviroCentre has a unique specialism related to environmental support for port and harbour facilities and is a member of the British Ports Association.
Our team has a wealth of experience of port, harbour and coastal projects in terms of environmental risk and development. This allows for a detailed overview of all potential due diligence issues associated with port facilities, including sediment and land quality, environmental permitting and licensing requirements, flood risk, drainage and discharge consent requirements, ecological constraints and operational and management requirements.
Forecasts indicate that decommissioning across the four regions of the North Sea will take place on 349 fields from
2017 - 2025.
The majority of these fields (214) are located on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS); presenting a wide range of opportunities for companies across the UK and Europe to either enter, or become more established, within this growing market.
An estimated 894,480 total tonnage will be brought onshore during this period; therefore, upgrades to infrastructure across the ports & harbours sector will be necessary to achieve "decommissioning ready" status. This may require activities such as dredging to provide deep water access and aid the ability of the site to receive the largest offshore lifting vessels.
EnviroCentre is experienced in providing decommissioning and waste management solutions; more recently, working with Lerwick Port Authority (LPA), AF Offshore Decom UK Ltd. and Arch Henderson, on a project which proposed a new North Sea Decommissioning Base north of Lerwick, on the Shetland Islands.
