Napier Port is currently carrying out a security exercise. These exercises are required under the Maritime Security Act 2004.
This exercise sees Napier Port's ‘business-as-usual’ Security Level 1 be increased to Security Level 2.
This exercise is being observed and audited by Maritime New Zealand to ensure Napier Port and its supporting agencies are prepared in the unlikely event of an actual security threat.
The scenario will see an increased security presence, such as police on Port.
There is potential for small queues of vehicles attempting to access the Port at our gates. Transport operators are being advised.
Thank you for your assistance and patience with any inconvenience related to the exercise.
