WARRENPOINT PORT AGM HELD VIRTUALLY DUE TO COVID 19
Due to the unprecedented circumstances brought by the COVID-19 pandemic and current Government guidance on social distancing, the Warrenpoint Port Annual General Meeting was this year held virtually for the first time.
A digital copy of our Annual Report, outlining the performance of the Harbour in 2019 can be viewed and downloaded here
The report confirms Warrenpoint Port’s position as the second largest harbour in Northern Ireland with tonnage of 3.5 million tonnes as we recorded turnover of £6 million.
While the coronavirus continues to impact locally and across the globe, Warrenpoint Port has remained open throughout the lockdown, as we have worked with our customers to fulfil our important role helping to ensure the local economy and food supply chains have continued to flow.
There was significant progress made throughout 2019 in efforts to optimise the harbour estate as we continued to invest in the reconfiguration of the port while work on the restoration and refurbishment of our landmark Town Dock House was completed in October re-establishing a direct interface between the harbour office and the town itself.
As it was impossible to hold our AGM in public, members of our community were invited to submit questions in advance of the meeting for consideration.
There was a huge response from our community, and we are pleased to provide answers to these questions below.
Due to the volume of questions received, particularly in regards to the development by Nippon Gases of a liquid CO2 hub to service the Irish food and drinks market, some questions have been summarised in order to provide as full and concise answers as possible. Individual responses will follow by email by the end of the week.
