Innovating for Scotland’s Growth
Forth Ports Dundee is the most northerly port within Forth Ports; it is one of the largest economic generators in the City of Dundee and the Tayside region of eastern Scotland.
Dundee is undergoing a major investment programme in its waterfront area, including the newly opened V&A Museum of Design, which is having a significant economic impact on the city and contributing to Dundee’s development as a business and tourism centre.
Forth Ports Dundee is strategically located on the east coast of Scotland, between Aberdeen and the central belt. The port lies on the north side of the sheltered River Tay estuary and is adjacent to the ring road which circles the outskirts of Dundee, providing fast and efficient road links in and out of the city.

A significant economic driver for Dundee
Dundee is ideally placed to serve the North Sea Oil and Gas industry. With its deep-water berths and extensive landside project areas the port regularly accommodates significant fabrication and refit projects destined for North Sea and Norwegian sector operations.
The port has extensive land reserves available for development. Short-term and long-term undercover and open storage facilities are available for a variety of different types of commodities and products. Ready to receive vessels twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, providing a flexible service to customers.
Forth Ports Dundee has undergone dramatic transformation in recent times, including the addition of a permanently based 1500t quayside crane (860t @ 24m). However, the most significant transformation has been through an investment of £10 million pounds to create a new quayside, positioning Dundee as a strong option for the decommissioning and offshore wind farm industry. This has provided 300m of new quayside with the capacity of 80tonne/m2 loading and a minimum water depth of 9m at LW (LAT).
Forth Ports is a founding partner of the recently launched Forth & Tay Decommissioning Alliance. Our Port of Dundee facility offers the ideal location, logistically and geographically, to establish the UK’s dedicated hub for end-to-end decommissioning. Forth Ports Dundee’s strategic location, ample dockside, and portcentric infrastructure make it the ideal domestic hub for decommissioning.
