Prospects for Hunterston as Container Hub

Prospects for Hunterston as Container Hub (PDF).

Bill Burns, Hunterston Project Director, Clydeport.

Clydeport, in partnership with Scottish Enterprise and North Ayrshire Council, has embarked on a consultation process to assess the viability of building a major
international container transshipment terminal at the Hunterston deep water site. If given the go-ahead, the terminal would bring a substantial number of jobs to the area, serve major trade routes to Europe, Asia and include transatlantic crossings, effectively seeing Hunterston act as a gateway port for all of the UK and Northern Europe. The facility would also be a Northern European hub, providing fast and lower cost connections with virtually all of the world’s major economies.
