Neptune Infrastructure Associates to support Ardersier Port owner Haventus in delivering world-class energy transition hub

30 Nov 2023

Neptune Infrastructure Associates Ltd, a specialist renewables asset management and commercial advisory firm, is delighted to announce the signing of a significant contract with Haventus Limited, the owner of Ardersier Port. Neptune will support Haventus in developing its commercial strategy and help transform the port into an energy transition hub over the coming years.

This contract signifies a significant step forward in both companies' efforts to enhance the operations and future prospects of vital UK port infrastructure. Both companies will work together to maximise the commercial viability of Ardersier Port for floating and offshore wind developers and OEMs in Northern Europe.

Mr. Hamish Yates, CEO of Neptune Infrastructure Associates Ltd, expressed his enthusiasm for this new initiative, stating: "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Haventus in realising their ambitious redevelopment plans for Ardersier Port. Without significant investment into UK port infrastructure, there cannot be a timely energy transition. This collaboration underscores our dedication to driving accelerated economic development and value-creation in renewable energy."

Mr. Lewis Gillies, CEO of Haventus Limited, shared the sentiment, saying, "Our engagement with Neptune Infrastructure Associates is a strategic move to optimise Ardersier Port's potential as a hub for renewable energy projects, including the 30GW arising from the Scotwind leasing round and other offshore wind opportunities in the North Sea. With their support, we are confident in our ability to further refine our commercial strategy and create a transition facility that builds on Ardersier’s proud history, supports the Highlands economy, and contributes to the UK’s offshore wind energy targets and decarbonisation priorities."

Neptune Infrastructure Associates and Haventus look forward to working closely together to leverage their combined strengths and deliver a port facility that will enable the rapid deployment of commercial-scale floating and offshore wind projects in Scotland and beyond.
