Princess Royal Jetty
The Princess Royal Jetty was constructed to
handle increasing trade from vessels servicing the offshore
oil and gas industry. The three berth jetty, 170 metres in length,
consists of a reinforced concrete deck supported on tubular
steel piles. The berths, which are protected by Trellex Arch
fendering, are serviced with fuel and water.
The two berths on the eastern side of the jetty, numbered 2
and 3, are operated by ASCO to complement its facilities at
the South Base. These have a minimum water depth of 7 metres
and can thus accommodate the larger North Sea oil support vessels.
The third berth, numbered 1 is operated directly
by Peterhead Port Authority. Along with 3,200 square metres of
concrete surfaced storage area, it is available for the handling
of bulk and general cargoes such as grain, fertiliser, peat
and frozen fish.
A Border Inspection Post that facilitates the
import of frozen fish from outside the European Union is situated
at the root of the jetty. A weighbridge and grain sampling gantry are sited next to the quay.
