CessCon Decom (CessCon) will launch a decommissioning hub at the Port of Aberdeen’s £400mn South Harbour expansion in the coming weeks. With a focus on subsea infrastructure, the hub will create up to 50 new jobs over the coming 12 months.
The agreement with CessCon “complements and expands” the decommissioning services offered at the Port’s North Harbour and CessCon’s Energy Park Fife decommissioning facility, the port said August 25.
CessCon is committed to the circular economy and the re-use and repurposing of equipment is a primary objective on all projects. The company has a minimum target on all projects of 98% re-use and recycling (by weight) of all material and has achieved over 99% re-use and recycling on several projects to date.
South Harbour will be operational by the end of October 2022 and the final quay will be brought into service next summer. It is part of the port’s bid to transform the region into the net-zero carbon emissions capital of Europe, creating up to 32,000 high quality jobs and opportunities and boosting gross value- added by £8.5bn.
