Montrose Port

Montrose is a Trust Port located on the east coast of Scotland. With a central location in one of the most scenic parts of Scotland, strong transport connections and responsive, flexible operations - Montrose Port is your gateway to the North Sea. Trusted by the biggest names in the energy, transport and logistics industries, we pride ourselves on being the link in the chain you can always rely on.

A leading support and service hub for the North Sea energy industry, we offer 1000 metres of quayside on both the north and south side of the port and provide a sheltered harbour almost half a mile long. With berths up to a depth of 8.5m - with significant covered and open storage - MPA is the port of choice for key oil and gas suppliers, as well as the growing renewables and decommissioning sectors.

Our quaysides are fully equipped to provide support for project work from chain and anchor inspections to decommissioning activities and offshore wind projects. One of MPA’s key attributes is its excellent record of accomplishment in mooring systems; storing and handling more than any other port in Europe.

We also take pride in our flexible approach, which allows us to operate across a number of markets and handle almost any type of cargo; including fertilisers, dry bulk, and forest products. MPA has established its reputation as a leading centre of international trade and distribution throughout Scotland and northern England.

Our success as a respected and forward-thinking port is predominantly due to the level of service we provide, but also down to the people working here. We have a close-knit team from top to bottom who know that, in a Trust Port, the fruits of their labours are all reinvested back into the business. As well as our staff, we have a board of enthusiastic professionals who take a keen interest in the day-to-day running of the port. They have a wide range of experience and expertise which is always available to help with operational and other business related matters.

Future Development Plans

In 2019, Montrose was selected as the home for Seagreen Offshore Wind Farms operations and maintenance base. This will include an operations building, warehouse, communications tower and pontoon for crew transfer vessels. This 50-year commitment from Seagreen will ensure ongoing investment and redevelopment of Montrose Port Authority’s existing facilities in line with their remit as a Trust Port. Work is already underway on this and construction is due to be completed by August 2021.
