The severe impact of the Covid-19 pandemic across all sectors of activities is noted in the latest Annual Review, for 2021, produced by Lerwick Port Authority.

With recovery underway by later in the year and now well advanced, John Henderson, Authority Chair since July 2022, and Chief Executive, Captain Calum Grains, acknowledge the considerable efforts made by staff and third parties in countering the effects of Covid on every operation at the Shetland port.

Mr Henderson comments: “The year once again demonstrated the strength of having a diverse customer base and multi-user facilities.”

Captain Grains states: “Recovery into 2022 is giving hope that activity will return in the short- to-medium term.”

The Review re-affirms the Authority’s commitment to sustaining and developing traffic and infrastructure, including maximising the potential of a replacement fishmarket, opened officially in 2021, and progressing an Ultra-Deep-Water Quay at Dales Voe to support offshore industry decommissioning and renewable energy projects.

The broad-ranging Review also looks at management and staff; objectives and targets; stakeholders and performance.
