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.
