2016 PRESS KIT PRESS CONFERENCE ON 6 JANUARY, LILLE, ÉCOLE SUPÉRIEURE DE JOURNALISME - CONTENTS TRAFFIC 2 INVESTMENTS & FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS 4 ABOUT THE PORT 5 PORT MAP 2 2016 TRAFFIC PRESS RELEASE Wednesday 6 January TRAFFIC: A SATISFACTORY YEAR The annual traffic in 2015 reached 46.6 MT, slightly down compared with 2014 (-1%). - General cargoes were 15% up overall with a tonnage of 20.6 MT. - Cross-Channel traffic made a new record at 16.2 MT, with an increase of 16%. The number of trucks and trailers rose by 21% to 700,000 freight units. Passenger numbers were up 23% to 3.1 million, and tourist vehicles increased by 19% to 800, Containers ended the year making a new record at 316,000 TEU (+1%), totalling nearly 3 million tonnes (+4%). Full containers alone rose by 12% to 197,000 TEU, thanks to the start of a new shipping line which focuses on import more than export. Although the beginning of 2015 was marked by alterations to the Asia service, these changes contributed to the success of Dunkirk's container terminal whose competitiveness is now recognised, boosted by the works on the swing circle which began this year. - Conventional general cargoes were up 33% with a tonnage of 1.4 MT. - For solid bulks, 2015 was a more difficult year because of two economic factors which reduced activity by 8% to 21.8 MT. Firstly, the ArcelorMittal factory at Dunkirk shut down its Blast Furnace 2 (BF2) for maintenance over the last five months of the year, and, secondly, the storm in December 2014 caused damage to the reloading machine of the Western Bulk Terminal which required lengthy and large-scale repair works. This meant that ore traffic fell significantly by 18% compared with 2014 to 11.1 MT. Coal traffic withstood these difficulties better because the drop in volume caused by the shutdown of BF2 was offset by the increase in coal charge traffic to the Lorraine region. The tonnage was stable at 5.1 MT. - Grain confirmed the record of the grain campaign (3.05 MT) with a new traffic record of 3.1 MT for the calendar year, an increase of 35%. - The traffic in small solid bulks showed a slight drop of 3% at 2.5 MT. - Liquid bulks fell sharply by 25% to 4.2 MT, following slowdowns in activity at the different sites. Dunkerque-Port is more than ever determined to develop these traffics, as demonstrated by its ambitious pricing policy. 3 INVESTMENTS 2015 BALANCE SHEET FORECAST 2015 was marked by the final adoption of the Port's Strategic Plan by the Board of Trustees, setting out an investment programme of 242 M over the period. The investment programme in 2015 was 37 M, lower than the budget originally planned, mainly because of delays in investment decisions on some private projects in the industrial port area, as well as positive results of invitations to tender. The investment programme for 2016, which has been increased to 47 M, reflects the Port's intention to pursue a policy of developing and adapting its infrastructures, in accordance with the guidelines set out in its strategic plan. In particular, 2016 will see the commissioning of the redeveloped Cross- Channel Terminal, which will greatly enhance the quality of services to England, as well as the project to improve access for shipping in the Western Port that will ensure optimum conditions of safety for berthing large ships at the Western Bulk and Container Terminals BALANCE SHEET The main investments made or begun in 2015 concerned: Completion of the compensatory environmental measures carried out for the LNG Terminal with Dunkerque-Port as contracting authority. Continuation of the necessary studies for the start of development operations in the Western Port: improved access for shipping by the widening of the swing circle and the access channel to the Atlantic Dock, optimisation of the Container Terminal by the building of an extension to the Flanders Quay. Completion of works on the border inspection post and improved road links in the Western Port. Investments for major maintenance of the harbour infrastructures, including renovation of the Watier Lock, safety works on the De Gaulle Lock road bridge, and renovation of the Ship Repair Yard infrastructures. Continuation of works to renovate the building and access roads of Dunkerque-Port headquarters. In 2015, following the call for expressions of interest that was won in 2014 by a consortium consisting of Dunkerque LNG, Exmar and Air Liquide, the Port also continued with the necessary studies for the development of an LNG supply chain for ships and overland transport. 4 INVESTMENTS 2015 BALANCE SHEET FORECAST To fund these investments of 37.M, Dunkerque-Port received 4.2 M in support from its partners, including the State (1.4 M ), the European Union (0.8 M ), the Nord-Pas de Calais Region (0.5 M ), Dunkirk Urban Community (0.8 M ), the Water Agency (0.1 M ) and Dunkerque LNG under the funding agreement (0.6 M ) FORECAST The 2016 investment budget, approved by the Board of Trustees on 27 November 2015, is up 27% compared with 2015 at 47 M will focus mainly on continued implementation of the large-scale development projects in the Western Port: Improved access for shipping in the Western Port Start of extension works at the Flanders Quay (Container Terminal) Development of infrastructures to allow the hosting of logistics businesses working in the offshore windpower industry Start of development works on the Dunkerque Logistique Internationale Sud logistics park Dunkerque-Port will also continue with the studies and administrative formalities to obtain the necessary permits for execution of the projects forming part of the strategic plan (north wharf at the Bulk Terminal and extension of the Flanders Quay), preventive archaeological surveys in the Grandes Industries area and the creation of small-scale LNG distribution services for the maritime, highway and industrial markets with the consortium selected in Finally, Dunkerque-Port is continuing with its efforts to maintain its assets in operational condition, with a major maintenance programme for its structures (quays, locks, waterway structures and compliance of buildings). It is also continuing operations for recycling of non-dumpable dredging sediment. Rail access to the Central Port, and in particular the Grain Terminal, will be improved to support the strong growth of pre-routing services. To implement this investment programme Dunkerque-Port will rely on the support of its partners, in particular the State and the Nord-Pas de Calais Region under the State-Region Projects Contract, the European Union under the Connecting Europe Facility, and Dunkirk Urban Community under the DUC-Port Agreement 5 HIGHLIGHTS JANUARY 2015 On 13 January Christian Eckert, Secretary of State for the Budget, visited Dunkirk where he launched the new measure of reverse charging of VAT at import. 1 2 A trade mission from Dunkerque-Port visited Ivory Coast and Senegal from 20 to 24 January traffic: Dunkerque-Port announced tonnage of MT in 2014 (up 8% over 2013). 3 Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) supply, call for expressions of interest: the bids were analysed to identify the most attractive proposal, and the Dunkerque LNG Air Liquide Exmar Marine NV consortium was named the winner of the CEI. 2 Monday 23 January 2015 saw the signing of the Partnership Charter for the Welfare of Seafarers. 3 4 FEBRUARY François Lambert appointed new Purchasing/Finance Director (General Services) at Dunkerque-Port. 4 5 MARCH Repairs to Darse 6 Bridge, lasting two months. 5 On Saturday 14 March the research vessel Marion Dufresne II arrived at Dunkerque-Port's ship repair yard for an upgrade of its scientific instruments and a major overhaul of its hull and engines.
