Rosyth International Contairner TerminalNotice ID:
Rosyth International Container Terminal
A public consultation event is to be held by Babcock Marine (Rosyth) Ltd. The subject of the event is the Babcock application for Marine Licences to carry out dredging and marine construction works in support of the proposed Rosyth International Container Terminal (RICT).
Babcock is proposing to undertake capital dredging to create a vessel access channel extending from the proposed RICT berthing area southwards into the Firth of Forth estuary at approximately Ordnance Survey grid reference NT 820 090. The proposed channel would be dredged to a level of 9.5m below Chart Datum (CD) over a base width of 150m, and extending approximately 630m into the deeper waters of the Firth of Forth.
Ground investigation work has indicated that the dredging would predominantly involve the excavation of river muds and silts. It is estimated that up to 900,000 cubic metres of material will be dredged and disposed of at a licensed sea disposal site in the Firth of Forth.
In addition to the dredging works, the proposal is for a total of approximately 535m of new steel piled wall of solid construction along the southern perimeter of the existing site to either side of the proposed berthing pocket and around the existing Contractor's Jetty in the south west corner of the site. The wall would be backfilled to the landward side.
It is also proposed to construct a piled mooring dolphin structure to either side of the berthing pocket entrance. The two dolphins would be located within the estuary approximately 20m to the south of the berthing pocket.
The dredging and marine construction work will be subject to Marine Licences from Marine Scotland - Licensing Operations Team.
The consultation event will take place between 09:00hrs and 20:00hrs on Thursday 23 June 2016 at:
The Elgin Hotel, Charlestown, KY11 3EE
