John Lawrie Metals Ltd, the decommissioning and metal recycling experts, has today announced two new quayside decommissioning facilities in the North-east of Scotland.
Following the issue of full waste management permits direct to John Lawrie, it means the company now has the capability to receive and process subsea infrastructure and piece small material at both Aberdeen and Montrose Ports. John Lawrie is committed to servicing the increasingly important decommissioning industry and is excited to offer full decommissioning services at these locations.
With its focus on metal processing efficiency and service agility, these new quayside operations will mean the company has the ability to downsize and process material onsite, as well as the potential to ship direct from the Ports with little or no road transportation or haulage required.
Both sites will have direct quayside access meaning ease of discharge and handover for client materials and will be managed specifically for subsea structure and piece small material returns, offering the decommissioning industry two new key locations for landing offshore assets.
By having both the Waste Management and Environmental Authorisations (Scotland) Regulations 2018 permits in place, the sites are able to accept all types of material produced during a decommissioning campaign.
John Lawrie has a long-standing working relationship with both Ports having worked together for over 30 years. As the industry moves into a phase of slower production and increased decommissioning activity, it is becoming ever more important to have the right facilities in the right locations available to the market.
With an aim of zero to landfill, John Lawrie Metals is the largest metal recycler in the North-east of Scotland, handling around 200,000 tonnes of metal annually.
