Bam Nuttall has been announced as the preferred bidder for a £12m harbour project in Scotland.
The contractor will build facilities at Stornoway harbour on the Isle of Lewis in the Hebrides needed for the new ferry to Ullapool.
Stornoway Port Authority announced that the contractor was preferred bidder for the deal yesterday.
The Port Authority’s chief executive Jane Maciver said the organisation expected to award the contract on 28 February. She said work would probably start in March and would take about eight months.
