Scrabster Ice Plant

In 2017, Alan Gow Groundworks was awarded the contract for carrying out all civil works for a containerised ice generating plant at Scrabster Harbour.  This is Scotland’s newest Ice Plant which was officially opened  on 4th September 2017 by Cabinet Secretary for the Rural Economy & Connectivity Fergus Ewing.

The new facility will be able to produce 30 tonnes of ice per day and has storage capacity for 60 tonnes. The Ice Plant at Scrabster Harbour, the UK’s fourth largest landing port for fish, will allow fishing boats to take on ice at any time of the day or night, protecting the quality of their catch. The £1m Ice Plant entered service in August 2017 and produces ice in plate form, which is better suited to modern fisheries. (Scrabster Harbour, 2017)
