#Containers -  Irish Continental Group (ICG) container subsidiary Eucon and divisions operating terminals in Dublin and Belfast ports, have released half-year results for 2016. 

Revenue in the division was up 9.8% to €62.8 million (2015: €57.2 million), EBITDA increased to €6.6 million (2015: €5.5 million) while EBIT rose to €5.4 million (2015: €4.1 million).

Total containers shipped were up 7.4% at 152,700 teu (2015: 142,200 teu).

Containers handled at the Group's terminals in Dublin Ferryport Terminals (DFT) and Belfast Container Terminal (BCT) were up 39.6% to 144,800 lifts (2015: 103,700 lifts). DFT's volumes were up 5.0%, while BCT's lifts were up 149.3%.

The increase in Belfast arises from the commencement in June 2015 of the Services Concession to BCT for the operation of a combined container terminal at Victoria Terminal 3 (VT3).

Containership,  MV Ranger remains on time charter to a third party and is currently trading in north-west Europe while MV's Elbtrader, Elbcarrier and Elbfeeder remain on time charter to Eucon.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
