Members of the public are invited to attend the Port of Milford Haven’s Annual Stakeholder Meetings taking place at the end of this month to hear about progress over the past year and development plans for the future.

Stakeholders will hear from the Port’s Chair, Chris Martin, and Chief Executive, Tom Sawyer, as well as other members of the Board and Senior Management team. 2023 was an exceptional year for the Port; in its 65th year, revenues exceeded £40m for the first time reflecting the collective efforts of everyone inside the business as well as the strength of the partnerships the Port has formed with its stakeholders far and wide.

Attendees will hear more about how a successful Port can help to support a thriving community. They will also hear updates on plans for significant investment to strengthen the Port’s world-class pilotage operations on the Waterfront, ambitions to play a major role in supporting floating offshore wind in the Celtic Sea from Pembroke Port, and further details behind the recent collaboration with The Celtic Collection on the purchase of St Brides Spa Hotel.

Tom Sawyer, CEO at the Port of Milford Haven commented:

“As a trust port, we are accountable to all of our stakeholders; Port users and those whose livelihoods and welfare depend upon us. Our Annual Stakeholder Meetings are the perfect opportunity to talk to us about the Port’s performance, as well as our developments and investments across Pembrokeshire. They are public events, open to anyone who would like to know more about our plans, or who may have queries about our activities.”

The Port of Milford Haven is the UK’s top energy port and Wales’ busiest port handling around 20% of Britain’s seaborne trade in oil and gas.  It is widely recognised in the industry as the energy capital of the UK.

The Port, along with the cluster of energy-related businesses along the Waterway, is a key driver of economic activity in Pembrokeshire, attracting inward investment and supporting over 4,000 jobs.

The Port of Milford Haven also owns and operates Pembroke Port and Milford Waterfront. Activities such as cargo handling, ferry operations, fish landing and cruise calls as well as a first class marina are spread across these two sites. 

One of the most prominent on the West Coast, the Port is in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only Coastal National Park in Great Britain. It is marked as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and has many areas designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
