The Tanker Jetty was designed to accommodate
oil tankers of up to 50,000 tonnes deadweight, delivering fuel
oil to the nearby Peterhead Power Station. The berth can accommodate
vessels up to 280 metres in length with a maximum draft of 11
metres. The jetty is also available for vessel repair and maintenance,
diving support and survey vessels, cruise ships and vessels
loading grain and other bulk cargoes. It has been used successfully
for IRM and mobilisation projects by both semi-submersible and
jack-up drilling rigs. The jetty is regularly used by clients
for demonstrating or testing ROV's and other equipment.
The Tanker Jetty consists of a reinforced concrete
deck supported on steel piles. The surface of the loading platform
is 4.8 metres above MHWS. The berthing face at the loading platform
and adjacent dolphins are protected by 3.3 metre diameter Yokohama
fenders. Two further mooring dolphins are located north and
south of the loading platform.
Fresh water is available at the jetty at a
maximum loading rate of 30 tonnes per hour. Road tankers can
deliver fuel. There is a small furnished office located near
the berth which is available to clients using the jetty.
