Princess Royal Jetty 

The Princess Royal Jetty was constructed to handle increasing trade from vessels servicing the offshore oil and gas industry. The three berth jetty, 170 metres in length, consists of a reinforced concrete deck supported on tubular steel piles. The berths, which are protected by Trellex Arch fendering, are serviced with fuel and water. 
The two berths on the eastern side of the jetty, numbered 2 and 3, are operated by ASCO to complement its facilities at the South Base. These have a minimum water depth of 7 metres and can thus accommodate the larger North Sea oil support vessels.

The third berth, numbered 1 is operated directly by Peterhead Port Authority. Along with 3,200 square metres of concrete surfaced storage area, it is available for the handling of bulk and general cargoes such as grain, fertiliser, peat and frozen fish. 

A Border Inspection Post that facilitates the import of frozen fish from outside the European Union is situated at the root of the jetty. A weighbridge and grain sampling gantry are sited next to the quay.
