About Burntisland

Burntisland lies between Kirkcaldy and North Queensferry on the northern shores of the Firth of Forth.

Burntisland handles liquid cargo in the form of caustic soda which is shipped into the port by sea and stored in a 4,500 tonne capacity tank provided by Forth Ports PLC. The company welcomes the opportunity to provide similar tank facilities for any customer wanting them.

Consafe, located in the West Dock, builds mainly accommodation modules for North Sea oil rigs. The Port can facilitate access for barges of 300 ft by 90 ft which move out the modules.
