Belfast Harbour is the island’s leading maritime gateway, handling goods valued at £20bn — representing almost two-thirds of Northern Ireland’s seaborne trade and one-fifth of the entire island’s. The Harbour is also Northern Ireland’s leading logistics and distribution hub, and is home to many well-known local businesses such as Titanic Quarter, George Best City Airport and the NI Science Park.

In February 2011, Belfast Harbour announced plans to fund a £40m Marine Energy Park to support the development of offshore wind farms by Danish-based firm DONG Energy. The proposed 50-acre park will create up to 300 full-time jobs and 150 constructions posts, making Belfast one of the UK’s leading renewable energy hubs.

Belfast Harbour remains a key facilitator of economic activity throughout Northern Ireland and continues to support major urban regeneration schemes within the Harbour Estate such as the £97m Titanic Belfast visitor attraction.
