Media release: Napier Port update on operations
Napier Port (NZX.NPH), the freight gateway for the central and lower North Island, expects to remain closed at least until midday tomorrow and is working to resume operations as weather related disruptions ease.
Napier Port closed its gates at 1700 on Monday ahead of the onset of the most severe weather. Initial safety and infrastructure assessments today have so far revealed minimal damage although storm related debris is inhibiting port access, while telecommunications connectivity is limiting operations.
Electricity to power critical infrastructure including refrigerated containers is being supplied by on-port generation facilities. No injuries have been recorded.
Napier Port’s senior management team is closely monitoring the situation and communicating directly with stakeholders including customers and its energy provider Unison Networks.
It will provide further updates as information comes to hand.
