Concrete Batching Facilities
The dry dock would be an ideal choice for the construction of concrete caissons for the offshore wind industry. It can also be used for the decommissioning of floating structures with ample set down space immediately adjacent to the dock. The dry dock gates are 160m in length, possibly the largest in the world and there is up to 13.8 m@MHWS. Previous use of the dry dock can be viewed in History.
For the right investor, there are a number of funding opportunities available for the development of the Port and Dry Dock and the suitability for the manufacture and construction of sub-sea concrete based structures.
At the mouth of Loch Kishorn the Sound of Raasay offers up to 160 metres of water depth. Loch Kishorn offers almost unlimited draft of up to 80 metres depth in the main channel, with three existing quayside berths at 120 metres length and two at 80 metres length. A tidal drop of 4 metres allows the maximum draft at these locations of two at 7.5 metres depth, and one at 10 metres depth. Kishorn Port also includes a 160 metre diameter dry dock, the dock gates can also be used to berth vessels up to 160 metres in length. At high water both dock gates and the internal dock can provide up to 13.8 metres depth at high tide.
