HMS St Albans Visited Holyhead for the North Wales Armed Forces Day
On Friday 24th May 2019, to celebrate North Wales Armed Forces Day and Freedom of the County Ceremony, we were pleased to be part of welcoming HMS St Albans to the Holyhead port and our jetty. Some 250 members of the public enjoyed a free tour of the ship.
2018 was a record year with 24 cruise ships, 2019 will break that record with 27 ships scheduled to berth at our jetty. Orthios already has more than this number of vessels booked for the 2020 season, and we expect this number to grow substantially.
Orthios is committed to providing the local community with employment opportunities wherever possible. In support of this, Orthios engaged with a local company, MônCF, to provide skilled staff to support the high level of jetty activity during the 2018 cruise season. This was extremely successful and so we have re-engaged for the 2019 cruise season.
Orthios anticipates 2019 will be a very busy year for the commercial vessels, utilising our jetty facilities for numerous marine orientated activities such as new ocean energy schemes and wind turbine refurbishment. Over the past 3 years, Orthios has seen a steady increase in the number of commercial visits to our berth face. This is in addition to a record number of cruise ships visiting our jetty.
2019 will be a busy year for the commercial vessels, utilising our jetty facilities for remobilisation activity. During the last 12 months 18 commercial vessels have berthed at our jetty, including the off-shore tug supply ship Sea Titus. This is in addition to a record number of cruise ships visiting our jetty.
