Aberdeen Harbour


Aberdeen Harbour, located in the northeast of Scotland, is a historic and bustling port that plays a crucial role in the region’s maritime and economic activities. Nestled along the North Sea coast, the harbour has a rich history dating back centuries, evolving from a small fishing port to a major international shipping hub. The harbour’s strategic location has contributed to its prominence, serving as a gateway for trade and commerce between Scotland and various global destinations.

Today, Aberdeen Harbour is not only a vital centre for offshore oil and gas support services but also accommodates a diverse range of maritime activities, including shipping, fishing, and ferry services.


Focused on extending the harbour’s facilities, the Aberdeen Harbour expansion project included the construction of new quays, deeper berths, and improved infrastructure to cater to larger vessels, especially in the offshore oil and gas sector.

As part of this development, the need for new port lighting arose to ensure safe and efficient operations, particularly during night shifts and adverse weather conditions.


Quay Area:

  • 12 x GL XXX masts
  • Challenger 1 LED 1500W & 500W

Perimeter Fence Line:

  • Medium duty flange plated 8m columns
  • S-LUM luminaires


  • 3 x 10m columns
  • F-LUM Midi floodlights

Wireless control system installed throughout. The system can be dimmed through a computer system in the gatehouse.

The fabrication of robust masts and columns ensures the structural integrity of the expanded Aberdeen Harbour. These components are designed to withstand harsh maritime conditions, guaranteeing long-term durability and reliability.

The incorporation of a new LED lighting system further enhances the Aberdeen Harbour’s operational efficiency. Abacus Lighting’s state-of-the-art technology not only illuminates the expanded port but also significantly reduces energy consumption and maintenance costs.

Abacus Lighting’s involvement in the Aberdeen Harbour expansion collectively contributes to a safer, more energy-efficient, and technologically advanced harbour, reinforcing Aberdeen’s position as a key maritime hub.
