Montrose Port Authority
John Lawrie Tubulars is one of the largest traders of steel tubulars in the UK and USA, purchasing and supplying new and used tubing, casing, OCTG, drill pipe, drill collars and related products. With a keen focus on the circular economy, we purchase steel tubulars from the oil and gas industry and repurpose them as a high quality replacement for concrete piles in the construction and civil engineering sectors globally.
We supported piling phases one and two on a multimillion pound redevelopment project at Montrose Port.
Work has completed at the Angus harbour on a £7.7million upgrade of two quayside berths, which now enables the accommodation of larger vessels. We supplied steel casing pipe for use as piling on the project, with around 2,500m of 339mm diameter pipe being required for the initial phase of work. The pipe was despatched from our 15-acre storage facility in Montrose, which generally holds around 50,000
tonnes of tubular stock at any one time.
The piling work was carried out by building and civil engineers Farrans, and ground engineering firm Van Elle Ltd. and involved steel casing pipe being driven into the ground to depths of 30m. These steel piles are now helping to support the foundations for the expanded quayside, which is now fully operational as of autumn 2019.
