Greenock cruises ahead with Ocean Terminal visitor centre and gallery
September 10 2018
Inverclyde Council have outlined plans to build a £14.7m cruise terminal at Greenock to capitalise on the burgeoning global cruise ship industry by boosting capacity.
Located on the banks of the Clyde Greenock Ocean Terminal will benefit from a newvisitor centre, restaurant and gallery dedicated to local sculptor George Wylie as the Clydeside town positions itself as a key destination for passing ships.
Council leader Stephen McCabe said: “The development at ocean terminal over recent years from very small beginnings as, effectively, a side business to the container terminal business is a testimony to the commitment by Peel Ports to growing this market in Scotland. The project to deliver new berthing facilities will help to support that growth.”
It is estimated that 150,000 passengers could pass through the Richard Murphy Architects designed terminal each year once the new visitor centre is complete by spring/summer 2020.
