Warrenpoint Harbour Authority Awarded £1.5m Funding For Infrastructure Works

Warrenpoint Harbour Authority have been awarded £1.5m from the Department for Infrastructure to take forward a programme of infrastructure works necessary due to COVID-19 challenges.

David Holmes, CEO of Warrenpoint Port said:

“We have been working closely with DfI, and our local representatives in relation to our Brexit and COVID-19 response. We are pleased to confirm this award. We see it as a measure of the Department’s confidence in and commitment to the Port.”

“The last 12 months have been challenging for all sectors. We would like to thank our team in particular, for their unstinting support in their role as key workers throughout the pandemic.”

“We look forward to progressing the opportunities that we are working on in 2021. Please all do stay safe during these continuing difficult times.”

Infrastructure Minister, Nichola Mallon MLA said: 

“The Harbour Authority has identified a range of infrastructure works required at the port as a result of the challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“This funding will therefore provide vital support following a difficult year for the port and will enable it to work towards economic recovery as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“I am pleased to be able to support Warrenpoint Harbour Authority with this bid and to provide support as the port  adapts to the requirements of future business needs.”
