Ferry operator Stena Line which employs dozens of temporary jobs are set to lost at Holyhead Port, reports NorthWalesLive. 

The Swedish owned ferry company announced last month it planned to furlough 600 employees with 150 redundancies across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

It has emerged 40 will be temporary posts at Holyhead Port, which are set to be axed at the end of the month.

Ynys Mon MS Rhun ap Iorwerth has expressed concerns about the job losses, but a company boss said they were having to make tough decisions.

“This shows the inherent vulnerability of people on temporary or zero hours contracts," said Mr Iorwerth.

Dublin Port Information

Dublin Port Company is currently investing about €277 million on its Alexandra Basin Redevelopment (ABR), which is due to be complete by 2021. The redevelopment will improve the port's capacity for large ships by deepening and lengthening 3km of its 7km of berths. The ABR is part of a €1bn capital programme up to 2028, which will also include initial work on the Dublin Port’s MP2 Project - a major capital development project proposal for works within the existing port lands in the northeastern part of the port.

Dublin Port has also recently secured planning approval for the development of the next phase of its inland port near Dublin Airport. The latest stage of the inland port will include a site with capacity to store more than 2,000 shipping containers and infrastructure such as an ESB substation, an office building and gantry crane.

Dublin Port Company recently submitted a planning application for a €320 million project that aims to provide significant additional capacity at the facility within the port in order to cope with increases in trade up to 2040. The scheme will see a new roll-on/roll-off jetty built to handle ferries of up to 240 metres in length, as well as the redevelopment of an oil berth into a deep-water container berth.
