The ports of Eivissa and Formentera today, Friday 8 October, hosted the annual meeting of the 10th Master's Degree in Port Management and Planning and Intermodality of Puertos del Estado.
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has bought six portable ozone generators to disinfect its official vehicles used for essential port services such as port police patrol cars and maritime signals and maintenance vans.
The ozone generators are put inside the vehicles at the end of each shift and switched on for a few minutes to ensure thorough disinfection. They are also being used to disinfect port access control booths, control centres and communal areas and rooms.
Ozone is an extremely efficient disinfectant and its use is recommended by the World Health Organisation in the fight against the spread of COVID-19. The APB has bought six portable ozone blasting units from Accuaria for nearly €6,000 and has deployed them around the public ports of Palma, Alcudia, Mahon, Ibiza and La Savina.
