Rosslare Europort achieves huge revenue growth on the back of a record year in 2022

Rosslare Europort’s revenue has grown by 39% from €9.280m in 2019 to €12.887 in 2022. This comes on the back of a record year in 2022 when over 200,000 freight units passing through the port for the first time in its history.

Growth at Rosslare Europort represented a 5% year on year increase on freight and a 53% cumulative increase since 2020. The Port introduced a new twice weekly service to Zeebrugge in conjunction with Finnlines, part of the Grimaldi Group, and there are now over 34 weekly direct Roll-on Rolloff (RoRo) services to and from Rosslare connecting to the ports of Bilbao, Cherbourg, Le Havre, Dunkirk and
Zeebrugge. This maintains Rosslare Europort as the number one Port in Ireland for direct Ro-Ro/Ro-Pax services to Europe. There was also a significant return to the passenger business with over 550,000 people using the port.  This represents a 128% increase on 2021 and just 5% behind 2019 pre-covid levels.

Rosslare Europort has also set out its vision to become the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) hub for Ireland’s South-East. The hub will service the emerging offshore wind industry and help support the Government’s offshore wind target of seven gigawatts of power from ORE by 2030. Progress continued on the design, funding and planning process for the future ORE facility at Rosslare Europort. A full project team across the various disciplines is in place with a number of key milestones delivered through 2022 to ensure the project can be delivered by 2026.
