CentrePort is delighted to once again support the CentrePort Youth Match Racing Championships. The Port’s connection with the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club is a long-standing one.
CentrePort and its various predecessors, as with the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club has been an integral part of the Wellington harbour and its community since the 1800’s.
We’re proud to be the port of choice for Wellington and the central New Zealand region, helping facilitate movement of cargo / goods to the value of $20bn per annum through its exporter and importer customers, the interisland ferry services and our fuel facilities.
While CentrePort employs approximately 240 people, it supports over 30,000 jobs related to its activities across Wellington, Taranaki, Whanganui, Manawatu, Wairarapa, Marlborough and Hawkes Bay. We’re owned by Greater Wellington and Horizons Regional Councils, so we truly belong to the people of central New Zealand.
After being significantly impacted by the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake, CentrePort is now in an exciting regeneration phase. Following finalising insurance claims totalling $667m last year we are now planning investment in major infrastructure projects that will create a 21st century asset to benefit the community and our customers.
The environment and community are among key principles of CentrePort’s regeneration. Partnering with Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club is an example of our commitment to connect with the community and being mindful of the need to ensure the harbour environment is one we can all continue to enjoy for recreation as well as for business.
