LERWICK HARBOUR DEVELOPMENTS

Lerwick Port Authority (LPA) announced this week future plans for the progression of facilites in the towns harbour. Top of the list is a new quay situated at Mair's Yard north of Holmsgarth which has been earmarked as the preferred site for the new fish market. This new building will replace the current market which has become to small to handle the recent upturn in Whitefish landings.

Other work due is the replacement of wooden decking in the small boat harbour, along with a refurbishment of the exsisting sea wall there. Once completed the new improved and larger decking will enhance safety in the area, alongside the new look promenade.

LPA's other capital projects planned for the future include:

(1) Construction of a possible deep water town centre berth once the fishmarket is relocated.
(2) Replacing the current LPA tug Kebister with a new build.
(3) Refurbishment of the Arlanda/Gremista quay.

NORTH NESS FUEL BERTH


The above photo shows the fuel jetty at the North Ness in Lerwick. This berth along with it's depot tanks are no stranger to debate as the local council would like to see them relocated to the outskirts of town. After the Buncefield fuel depot explosion a few years ago these depots came under review, and as the Lerwick site is close to residental and business properties, not to mention a ship repair yard right next door, a move on the cards seems likely in the future.

SHIPS SHELTERING OFF SHETLAND

Shetland is in the grip of an icy blast of bitter arctic winds with northerly gales and heavy snow showers at present and shipping is being affected by this.

A number of vessels have been seeking more sheltered waters in the last 24 hours as they wait for the swell to ease... these are as follows....

MAERSK FEEDER (DODGING EAST OF SHETLAND)
SUBSEA VIKING
FAUSTINA (CARGO VESSEL, SHELTERED OFF LEVENWICK)
NORRONA (PASSENGER FERRY, SHELTERED OFF LEVENWICK)
NorthLink's ferries Hjaltland and Hascosay both sailed to Aberdeen last night however the ferries from Aberdeen cancelled due to high seas.

TECHNICAL PROBLEMS

Firstly may i say a sincere apology for the lack of updates in the last two weeks. This was caused by a severe internet/computer breakdown at my end along with myself having a brief stay in hospital.

I'm pleased to say myself and my computer are back in the land of the living and normal service will now be resumed!

Thank you for your patience in this matter and hope you keep enjoying the blog....

BAD WEATHER

The past 5-7 days have seen persistant gale force westerly winds batter the islands and as the list of vessel seeking shelter grows the forecast remains bad.

Tonights sailings of NorthLink ferries have been postponed to and from the Mainland.

A number of vessels are seeking shelter along Shetland's east coast, with several lying in the lee of Fetlar. Amongst these are the Blyford Dolphin rig with it's attending escorts, Dea Server, Odin Viking, and Viking Troll.

2009 CRUISE SHIPS

A provisional list of cruise ships due in Lerwick next year has been released yesterday. The 33 ships are due call between May and September with some noteable arrivals.

The season kicks of with the Deutschland on the 14th May and concludes with a visit from the Marco Polo on the 24th September.

During the summer Shetland will be visited by these liners on maiden calls to the islands: AIDAcara, Azamara Journey, Regatta, Alexander Von Humboldt, Costa Magica, Boudicca, Tahitan Princess, Artemis, and Crown Princess.

Despite the 33 booked others have yet to and it is expected that the final total will be over 40 in line with previous years.

Once additional ports around Shetland are included in the grand total it makes Shetland one of Europe's most popular calls for cruise liners.

FAIR ISLE IMPROVEMENTS

North Haven harbour in Fair Isle is in line to recieve improved facilites if all goes to plan.

Firstly at the request of the skipper of the local ferry Good Shepherd a new white navigational light is to be installed to aid mariners entering the harbour.

The tight harbour as mentioned in a previous post is also attracting a fair degree of passenger ships and this has been reflected in this years total number of cruise ships which called. The 11 in total that visited had to anchor offshore whilst passengers were tendered to the island. Passengers land on a slippery concrete slip, and whilst this is not ideal, the Shetland Islands Council plans to put in safety railings to aid disembarkation ashore.

The harbour and it's approach is also in line for a hydrgraphic survey to assess the possible impact of shifting sands around the area.

NORWEGIAN JEWEL BREAKS RECORDS

Click to enlarge

Click to enlarge

A new milestone was achieved for Lerwick Harbour on Friday as the largest ever liner visited the port. The Norwegian Jewel arrived from Dover with 2,000 passengers onboard on her way to New York as part of a re-positioning cruise.

The trend of bigger liners shows no end and the Jewel will hold the title only briefly as there are bigger ships due next year. Firstly the Costa Magica is booked in for two visits but even she will be surpassed by the Crown Princess in September 2009.

Provisionally there are 33 cruise ships due next year with that figure set to rise further.
