Scrabster Harbour is the most northerly mainland port in the UK. It lies very close to the northern fishing grounds of the Atlantic and is currently the fastest growing fishing port in Britain. The newly constructed Queen Elizabeth Pier has provided a much needed deep water basin, primarily built to berth the new ro-ro ferry.

The Scrabster Harbour Trust, in conjunction with The Scottish Executive and The European Union, funded the scheme. They required a lighting solution that would provide high levels of illumination, keeping the amount of ground level obstructions to a minimum.

Urbis supplied five of their High Masts to light the new Ferry Terminal areas. The High Masts rise 20 metres above the dock, and produce an even lighting distribution using AF4 lanterns. Each High Mast has three AF4 units with 250 Watt SON-T lanterns and flat glass protectors.

The scheme has been well received by everyone using the dock and ferry terminals. The AF4s have also weathered the harsh North Atlantic coastal conditions well.
