An Invergordon based logistics company is to add another 10 staff to its books after winning a major contract worth more than £1 million.

PSG Marine has secured a lucrative deal to manage the onshore handling works for the 100-turbine Moray East Offshore Wind Farm.

And the supply chain firm’s managing director revealed last night it would now be employing more workers to help with the increased demand, taking its full roster to 40.

Work will be carried out at the marshalling harbour within the Port of Cromarty Firth in Invergordon.

PSG Marine and Logistics managing director Steve Clark said: “We tendered and secured this major port marshalling contract against strong international competition.

“The contract award has led to significant investment in our heavy lift and transport operation and the creation of highly skilled jobs and training opportunities.

“We intend to build on this award to demonstrate we have the capabilities and capacity to deliver further workscopes as this groundbreaking project unfolds

“It’s fantastic news for PSG, Port of Cromarty Firth and the wider Highland supply chain.”

Granted consent in 2014, the Moray East wind farm will be built in agreement by developers EDP Renewables, Engie and China Three Gorges.

The development, due to begin construction in 2021, is expected to power more than 950,000 homes.

Bob Buskie, chief executive of Port of Cromarty Firth, described the deal as “further evidence of the strong renewables cluster in and around the Moray Firth, which offers customers a choice of experienced suppliers and skilled workers able to support these multi-million pound energy projects.”

Local councillor Maxine Smith said the deal was “wonderful for the area”.

She added: “I think that people sometimes underestimate how many local people are employed by the port authorities base in Invergordon.”
