The project involved the construction of the new Loch Ryan Port Development for Stena Line on a 26 acre site including reclaimed land 5 miles north of Stena’s existing Stranraer Port Facilities. The new development incorporated terminal buildings, security building, workshop, check-in booths, pump house, link span and security gallery. The facility is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- There was extensive infrastructure works involved including alterations to the existing A77 road and creation of a new roundabout adjacent to the site. This involved the installation on new street lighting and the extension to the existing water main along the road network.
- The site itself included approx. 3000 metres of new mains water and fire main pipework supplying the various building, fire hydrants and ship to shore international connections.
- There was a site wide fibre network installed with four network rings, two dedicated to the CCTV installation and the remaining two for the data installation.
- There were 17 high mast lighting columns installed varying from 25-30 meters in height to cover the site and associated car parks and loading areas.
- Backup power to the terminal building is supplied by a new diesel fuelled generator with a continuous output of 750Kva at 0.8PF/400Volts at 1500RPM. We also relocated the two existing 450Kva and 150Kva generators from the old Stranraer Terminal as backup for the workshop facilities and link span.
- The industrial workshops are equipped with an overhead crane, compressed air installation, welding booths with specialized fume extract systems and heated via radiant panels installed at high level.
- The main terminal building has a centralised air handling unit complete with heat recovery to provide ventilation throughout.
