Cuxhaven, 26 April 2018 - At the 45th general meeting of the Cuxhaven Port Association (HWG) on 17 April 2018 at Donner's Hotel, the 17-member board of directors was confirmed in office for the next two years. 43 members of the association, which represents the interests of companies around the port of Cuxhaven, attended the meeting.
The only change in the board is the addition of Thomas Lemke, Managing Director of Boots- und Schiffswerft Cuxhaven. In addition, Marcus Braue replaces the resigned Ortolf Barth in representing DFDS within the board.
Chairman of the board Hans-Peter Zint thanked the attending members for the renewed confidence: "In 2017, we were able to address our target groups and markets and to position the topics that are important to our port via our successful port breakfast format, active participation in Seaports of Niedersachsen's ‘port meets hinterland’ series of events and last but not least our CuxDay in Hamburg. This year we will again focus on the further development as well as on the challenges and opportunities for the Port of Cuxhaven".
Arne Ehlers, Vice Chairman, added: "The further development of Cuxhaven’s ‘German Offshore Industry Centre’, the HWG's commitment to promoting young talent in port logistics and the electrification of railway lines to and from Cuxhaven are only some of the priorities we have set ourselves for 2018. We are confident that together and in cooperation with the city of Cuxhaven, state port operator Niedersachsen Ports, and other relevant authorities and politicians, we can continue to achieve positive results."
The Cuxhaven Port Association (HWG) represents the interests of Cuxhaven’s maritime companies, institutions and private individuals united by the common goal of marketing and further developing the port at the mouth of the river Elbe.
