About Milford Haven

As the fifth largest port in the UK, and set in the heart of the only Coastal National Park in Great Britain, Milford Haven Port Authority is responsible for the biggest port in Wales, and one of the most prominent on the West Coast.

Milford Haven is a trust port - an independent, commercially run organisation, and as a result the Authority has a statutory responsibility to both Government and its stakeholders, and is required to reinvest all profits to the benefit of the latter.

The Authority provides port, harbour and associated services through its commercial arm, The Milford Docks Company. These include, wharfage, stevedoring, support to the fishing industry, ship repair, waterside services, marine and leisure facilities and provision and operation of the Pembroke Dock Ferry Terminal used by Irish Ferries.

A further subsidiary, D V Howells, provides national and international oil pollution clearance and training services.

The Milford Haven Port Authority (formerly the Milford Haven Conservancy Board) is a public trust port authority set up as an independent statutory body by Act of Parliament in 1958. Its general duty is to promote and protect both local and national interests in the development of the Haven for the public benefit. In particular, it serves the navigational needs of three major oil refineries in the Haven.
