About

Performance

The Authority continued to focus during 2016 on safety of navigation for vessels visiting Harwich Haven, environmental stewardship, health and safety and customer service. Ensuring we deliver a safe and efficient service remains a key objective for staff across our vessel traffic services, pilot and launch crew teams.

Key financial indicators

Our two sources of revenue, pilotage and conservancy produced a consolidated revenue of £24.5 million (2015: £24.3 million) in 2016.  The revenue delivered a surplus before taxation of £5.9 million (2015: £4.2 million) which was used to service outstanding borrowing, make contributions to our pension deficit recovery plan and to invest in maintaining and improving essential assets.
