Funding boost for Aberdeen’s £350m harbour expansion plan
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will today announce a “significant” funding boost for Aberdeen’s £350 million harbour expansion project.
Plans were approved in December to extend the harbour into Nigg Bay to accommodate oil and gas decommissioning work, in a move that could boost the Scottish economy by almost £1 billion a year.
Aberdeen Harbour Board also wants to expand into areas such as tourism, with improvements aimed to attract cruise ships to the area.
