Warrenpoint Port has invested £800,000 in new plant that will "significantly improve efficiency" at what is Northern Ireland's second largest harbour.

Authorities at the port have taken delivery of the first wave of the new fleet which will include seven forklift trucks.

Eoin O'Mahony, head of engineering and estates, Warrenpoint Port, said: "This investment in new plant is just the latest step in our drive to maximise efficiency across all our operations and it is a great pleasure to accept the first tranche of the new consignment that will be fully complete by September.

"The new forklifts will have a broad range of lifting capabilities allowing us to handle the full spectrum of commodities that pass through the port, from timber to steel and beyond."

The forklifts have been manufactured by NI-based Hyster.
