Risk management as a tool for creating maritime port value in Poland using the example of the Port of Gdynia Authority S.A. – guests of the II Maritime Security Forum that took place on 10 January this year at the Baltic Port of New Technologies could learn about this, among other topics.
“One of the financial value generators of each enterprise is the cost of capital involved in its operations. Risk management is an important tool for cutting the capital cost, i.e. it may contribute to the increase of an enterprise value. Risk management at the Port of Gdynia S.A is based on ISO 31000 standard, using the e-risk programme. We regularly take advantage of advice from external experts (UG, UM, PZU LAB, ryzykonomia.pl,). The company’s financial results allow efficient implementation of the development strategy, including purchase of land, reconstruction of quays, port canals dredging and in the future – also construction of the external port. In such circumstances, systemising risk management processes at a company of a strategic importance for the region seems a must”, says Piotr Nowak, Vice President of PoGA S.A.
The main themes of this year’s event were new technologies, risks appearing in the maritime industry and plans for IT/OT network security and cybersecurity activities, as well as R&D works in the first Smart Pomeranian Specialisation, i.e. offshore and port logistic technologies.
Nearly 160 people from the world of business, science and administration took part in this meeting organized by PZU LAB SA, Pomeranian Special Economic Zone, Port of Gdansk and NASK SA, in cooperation with the Port of Gdynia.
