Work to replace the access gates and fencing around the controlled area in the Port of Eivissa has begun and is expected to last for two months and cost 300,000 euros.
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has acquired a total of 20 hand-held thermal imaging cameras and one thermal imaging camera for large groups. These cameras are being used in the passenger health checks that the Balearic Government is carrying out in the Islands' public ports, in partnership with the Red Cross.
These cameras began to be deployed on Monday, replacing the temperature guns and digital thermometers that had previously been used. Checks are being carried out on passengers in the arrival areas of the scheduled ferry services at the ports of Palma, Alcudia, Mahon and Ibiza. Checks on passengers bound for La Savina are carried out in the boarding area of the Port of Ibiza.
The thermal imaging camera for large groups will be installed at the Port of Ibiza, the APB-managed port that handles the largest number of scheduled ferry passengers.
