Established in 1987, Currie Brothers Ltd is a family run Marine and Civil Construction and Plant Hire business, based in Orkney.
With over 25 employees, the company's work load is varied and extensive. In the last few years, the company has actively involved in the new and exciting field of marine renewables. With extensive knowledge of the seas around Orkney, a skilled workforce and steel fabrication workshop, Currie Brothers have proved to be a major contributor to Open-Hydro’s successful deployment of the first marine tidal turbine in Orkney waters. The company has already had interest from other companies hoping to test their tidal devices at the EMEC tidal site at Fall of Warness, Eday, Orkney. Moreover, Currie Brothers are currently the principal contractor for the manufacture of EMEC's new subsea mooring systems.
Over the last few years Currie Brothers have been the main contractor on several major pier development projects, both in Orkney and the North of Scotland, the largest being a £3.5million redevelopment at Wick harbour (including the placing of sheet piles and rock armour). The company is also the principal contractor on the £3 million redevelopment of Lyness Harbour in Hoy, Orkney.
Other than the company's specialist subject of marine works, Currie Brothers are also involved with other renewable energy projects, road works, site clearances, reinforced concrete works, crane and plant hire, water treatment works, pipe laying and drainage.
