UK charity and General Lighthouse Authority Trinity House has welcomed the UK’s Minister of State for Transport John Hayes MP to its Harwich depot on 23 February 2017.

The visit served to familiarise the Minister with the
functions and operations of Trinity House—specifically in its role as a General
Lighthouse Authority—highlighting risk in UK waters and Trinity House’s ability
to respond to that risk, as well as a close look at operational delivery and
technological innovation.

With presentations by Trinity House executives and staff, Mr
Hayes’ visit also included the state-of-the-art Planning Centre from which
Trinity House monitors and operates its marine aids to navigation.

Trinity House’s Executive Chairman Captain Ian McNaught
said:

“We are grateful to the Minister for this opportunity to
demonstrate our role in maritime UK. As we continue to improve the way we
operate, to identify efficiencies and meet our requirements as an aid to
navigation provider, it is important to reiterate our position as a vital part
of our island’s maritime infrastructure, and that’s what we have done today.”
