Box 39176 Harewood, Christchurch 8545 THE Lyttelton Port Company’s ability to get back into operation quickly following the Christchurch earthquakes was recognised at last week’s 9th annual Champion Canterbury Awards. The company was recognised in the exportinginnovative responses to earthquake recovery section. Port company chief executive Peter Davie said the port was held up for only 96 hours after both the September 4 and February 22 earthquakes. “As a result there was very little impact on the port’s export operations. Internationally, ports would be shut for weeks if not months after a major event like this.” Mr Davie said the company was delighted to receive recognition for its efforts in handling extremely difficult situations. “We were stoked, and it was a reflection on the efforts of all our staff. Everyone put in a great effort to get back, and it was recognition of a job well done. “A number of our people living in the eastern suburbs had damaged houses but they came in so the company could get up and running as soon as possible.” The Champion Canterbury Awards recognise and celebrate business excellence, passion and success. The Prime Minister John Key was among nearly 1200 guests who attended the awards function at the CBS Canterbury Arena last Thursday evening. The port company employs 430 staff, some of whom live in Lyttelton while most reside in Christchurch. The damage to the port caused by the earthquakes is likely to result in the biggest single corporate insurance claim ever made in the Southern Hemisphere, with the total expected to reach more than $300 million. Rebuilding the port will probably take five or more years. The company achieved an earthquake-adjusted profit after tax of $12.1 million for the year ended June 2011. The statutory consolidated result, which included earthquake effects such as additional costs, insurance proceeds and revenues lost, was an after-tax profit of $24.1 million, with revenues of $91.6 million. Write-downs of port assets as a result of the earthquakes and aftershocks totalled $29 million. PIGEON Bay Boating Club Spring Sailing Weekend October 1 and 2.
