South Base 

The South Base was designed to facilitate the prompt and efficient turn around of vessels involved in servicing the logistical requirements of the offshore oil and gas industry. Modern vessel handling methods allow loading, offloading and bunkering to be carried out simultaneously, resulting in reduced turnaround times. It is used extensively by platform support and anchor handling vessels, oil tankers and bulk carriers 

The Base acts as the centre of ASCO's Peterhead operations and offers a total of 12 berths across the South Base Quay, South Breakwater and Princess Royal Jetty. Within the Base there is office accommodation, warehousing and approximately 4.5 hectares of open storage. Berth 8 incorporates a 500 tonne heavy lift pad and is suitable for Ro-Ro use. All major chemical contractors are represented at the Base for the supply of mud and cement commodities.

A full range of material handling equipment including mobile cranes from 36 to 500 tonnes capacity, forklifts and transportation fleet is available at the South Base to meet the complete servicing needs of vessels using the berths.
