AIM awarded ExxonMobil contract31st May 2019
AIM has been awarded a major contract that will help extend the life of the ExxonMobil jetty facility at Braefoot Bay Marine Terminal in Fife. The tanker terminal exports liquefied petroleum gas to Europe and the USA after being produced at Fife Ethylene Plant, using feedstock from the North Sea.
AIM have commenced working on the 233-metre long jetty for the first phase of a major upgrade programme. This phase alone represents an investment of some 3,000 man-hours. As part of the work, they will be using a cutting-edge temporary access structure, which will be suspended below the jetty and encloses the work area to ensure no environmental impact to the Firth of Forth below.
The project represents the beginning of a major investment in the jetty, which handles shipping of ethylene from the Fife Ethylene Plant (FEP) to ports in mainland Europe.
