The International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) has designated 1 July of each year as World Marine Aids to Navigation Day.
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has acquired four new Toyota Prius Plus Hybrid vehicles for the port police at the Port of Palma, which will become operational this week.
In the near future, the APB is also considering purchasing another five vehicles, this time 100% electric, in order to renew its fleet with more efficient and environmentally-friendly cars. Charging points for these cars have therefore been set up at the port facilities.
The budget for the acquisition of the vehicles was 138,454 euros and has been awarded to Multiauto Palma, S. L., by means of a public tender.
