Sheltered by a rock-armoured breakwater, Albert Quay, including East Quay, provides 340m of all-weather deepwater berthing.
Albert Quay is used by larger whitefish and pelagic fishing vessels and for handling bulk cargoes, oil imports and other trades.
The berthing and heavy lift capability make Albert Quay one of the best facilities in north-east Scotland for the subsea industry. Quayside fabrication projects can also be accommodated. The water depth is 9m and the quay is 30m wide.
East Quay is situated at the east end of Albert Quay. A processing factory, freezing facilities and a cold store are located on the quay and large volumes of pelagic fish landings take place in this area. A grain sampling gantry is also available.
