#BelfastHarbour - Belfast Harbour’s latest annual report shows a record €36.6 million in profits, according to The Irish Times.

The 12% rise in operating profits in 2016 comes with a 7% increase in turnover within the same 12-month period to more than €66 million.

This boost to Belfast’s bank balance has been driven by an increase in cargo throughput to more than 23 million tonnes, and revenue from its significant property portfolio around Belfast Lough.

Landholding interests of the harbour company — whose CEO Roy Adair will step down next year — include George Best Belfast City Airport and the new Belfast Harbour Studio at Giant’s Park, which will host the shoot for new US sci-fi TV series Krypton this summer.
