Barbados Port Inc. supporting restoration of historic East Point Lighthouse

Barbados Port Inc. (BPI) has proudly announced its involvement in the restoration of the historic East Point Lighthouse in St. Philip. The restoration project, to be performed by Hinds Transport Services Ltd. and overseen by the BPI, commenced last month marked by an official ceremony and the initial removal of tree branches which have penetrated the building over time.

New Multi-purpose Loading Platform Improves Safety

Cruise passengers, Port workers and representatives of the multiple agencies that conduct business in the Port, pass by this piece of equipment every day without giving it a second glance.

The inconspicuous, orange multi-purpose loading platform operating at the cruise and cargo ships has provided a safer working environment for the dockers who service these vessels.

Concerns Trigger Action

Cruise Passengers Seek an ‘Experience’

Over the years, the summer months heralded vacation travel for hundreds of Barbadians, and cruising is quickly becoming the preferred choice for many. Since the 1980s, Barbadians have watched as majestic, imposing cruise ships sailed in and out of the Bridgetown Port, bringing travellers from diverse parts of the globe. Something about these mega-ships captures the imagination. Their size has increased, and most of them boast a capacity of over 2,500 passengers, with the newer ships carrying over 3,500 passengers, plus crew.
