Marine Centre plans for James Watt

UK: Expansion plans for James Watt Marina on the River Clyde at Greenock have been secured by the lease of around 6ha (14.8 acres) of additional land and water. The marina will use the Great Harbour space to develop a marine trade centre.

Marina Projects played a pivotal role in obtaining the lease and, in back-to-back arrangements with the marina, has also signed up Serco as an anchor tenant. Serco provides maritime services for customers in the Defence sector and operates nigh on 100 vessels from five sites around the UK, working in British waters and around the world. It will provide commercial marine services, including towage and salvage and passenger transfer, from the Greenock site.
Marina Projects provided support in negotiating the commercial terms with Serco and also establishing a site-wide masterplan and business case for the wider marine trade centre proposals, which took full account of the Serco operations.

Dan McKiernan, operations director for Marina Projects, commented: “It has been a pleasure working with the Serco team, and being able to support their ongoing activities was a key aspect of our masterplan proposals. Having this anchor tenant in place provides real clarity on the future development and operation of the Great Harbour site and we are excited to provide our continued support to the delivery of the masterplan.”
