Key strategic developments over the last 5 years

W.B. Yeats

The introduction of the WB Yeats in 2018 has met our expectations both operationally and financially. The flexibility, reliability and capacity of the vessel has been critical in allowing the Ferries Division to successfully navigate constantly changing trade flows due to the twin effects of the UK exit from the European Union and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Dover to Calais route

Commencement of the Irish Ferries service on the Dover – Calais route in 2021. Introduction of a third ship onto the route in during 2022 allowing us to offer 30 sailings per day to our customers.

Dublin Ferryport Inland Depot (DFID)

Opening of our new terminal in the Dublin Ferryport Inland Depot in January 2022. The inland depot is strategically located to allow easy access to Ireland’s motorway system. This will allow ancillary services to be provided outside of the Dublin Port area, therefore increasing capacity in the Dublin Ferryport Terminal.

Terminals Investment

Continued investment in decarbonisation of Dublin and Belfast Terminals. During 2022, the Group took delivery of a further five electric RTGs, Of the total of nine electric RTG’s, six are fully commissioned and in use, with a further three to be commissioned in 2023. The Group has also ordered one new electrically powered ship-to-shore crane for delivery in 2023.
