Peterhead is one of the UK’s most versatile ports, providing exceptional all-weather, congestion-free deepwater berthing facilities at depths of up to 14 metres and serving a broad range of industries including oil and gas, renewables, fishing and leisure.
The UK’s largest white fish and pelagic (mackerel and herring) port is building on its reputation as a traditional centre of excellence for both fishing fleets by providing a full range of constantly updated modern quayside services including on-site fish market, ice and water plants, fuel supplies and ship repair and maintenance at their slipway, syncrolift and dry dock.
Protecting the port was essential to efficent working. Paramount Security Group were awarded the contract to provide security counter measures which included electric gates, Palisade fencing and access control. Maintaining the wide access width was an issue to some companies, but the Paramount Bi-Parting gates proved to be the solution to the problem.
Access for pedestians has been provided by custom designed access gates, which can be opened by regular visitors and staff using the access control system, also supplied as part of the scope of work.
