12 KNOTS, MAXIMUM SPEED FOR IBIZA'S PORT

You are here

Ibiza, 05/05/2016

From May 1st on, transiting vessels may not exceed the speed restriction of 12 knots applied all over Ibiza port. Stated by maritime Captain of Ibiza and Formentera, Luis Gascón, whose decision has been published in the April 30th BOIB (Official Balearic Islands’ Gazette). 
 
This speed limitation will be kept during APB works, performed to extend south pier of Botafoc, be-cause ships’ strong surf impedes performing the needed works undisturbed. 
 
A mile away from Botafoc pier and as per the green light of it, reducing speed is mandatory, exclusively for those in port’s access direction. Only in case of exceptional weather conditions this speed restriction will be exceeded. 
 
Maritime Authority’s resolution was undertaken following the request of the company in charge of works’ execution, warming of the danger for both people and infrastructure caused by waves. After the meeting with APB representatives, shipping companies in regular traffic, Ibiza port’s pilots and the personnel responsible for prevention of labour risks of the company, it was subsequently found that speed must be reduced during access manoeuvring into Ibiza Port.
