Notice to Mariners – Shetland HVDC Link Noss Head

 

The work to install three Horizontal Directional Drilled (HDD) exit points by NKT, on behalf of Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission Plc, at Noss Head, has been completed. The moorings and anchors used to assist with diving operations for the HDD installation activities have been fully recovered, therefore the HDD exit point area is no longer identified by marker buoys.

The attached Notice is issued to make mariners aware of the presence of three ducts protruding from the seabed. It is recommended that mariners remain vigilant and make note of the approximate HDD exit locations until June 2022, when further installation works are scheduled.

The attached NtM provides further information about the HDD exit points, including chart of the locations and the coordinates, details of the HDD exit points (including a diagram and photograph), navigational safety features and project contact details.

New Team at Wick Harbour

Ian Cormack above

Following the recent retiral of Harbour Master Malcolm Bremner, Ian Cormack has been promoted from Deputy Harbour Master and takes over  marine responsibilities for Wick Harbour. His role will include upholding the regulatory demands of a statutory harbour authority and overseeing marine operations, staff and ongoing business development at the harbour. Chairman John Mackay said

“We are delighted to promote Ian into this role – he is a well known face around the harbour and community,  and also through his work with Wick RNLI. Wick Harbour Authority has already benefited greatly from his input since he joined as Deputy Harbour Master 3 years ago.”

“In addition, we welcome Peter Sutherland as our newly appointed Deputy Harbour Master.”

Peter, from Forse Lybster, is presently employed by Condor Ferries on their cross channel routes ,  and he will be joining the team in January 2022 following completion of his notice period with his employers .

Peter said “I am looking forward to returning to a maritime shore based role closer to home and the challenges and opportunities offered in the role of Deputy Harbour Master at Wick.“

John Mackay said

“We received a large number of candidates for the Deputy Harbour Master position, with applicants displaying a diverse range of skills and levels of experience.  After a very robust and rigorous selection  process, 6 strong candidates were shortlisted, with Peter being the successful applicant.”

“The board are therefore looking forward to Peter joining the team alongside Ian and the rest of the staff.  We move forward with confidence  at a time of increased interest in offshore renewables, whilst continuing to support our  existing harbour users. “
