Wallace Stone is delighted to be involved in this project to design a strategic new deep water berth at Stornoway harbour. This new berth will help drive economic growth, not just in the town itself, but in the Western Isles as a whole. Specifically, it will provide berthing for:

  • Cruise ships (enhancing the tourism industry);
  • Dedicated freight ferries (freeing up capacity on hard-pressed passenger ferries especially during peak tourist season);
  • Other cargo vessels (oil tankers, ships carrying renewable energy components).

It will also enhance facilities for engineering fabrication and decommissioning and will provide an alternative berth for the lifeline ferry service in the case of damage to the existing piers.
