The president of the Balearic Islands Port Authority (APB), Francesc Antich, presented the economic state of the organisation today at a press conference with regard to the figures of the 2021 repo
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) will allocate 97,000 euros to the disinfection of the six maritime stations of the port of Palma. As passenger traffic resumes, especially cruise ship traffic, and within the framework of the restrictions imposed by the health situation caused by the pandemic, this contract will guarantee that the maritime stations of the port of Palma are in a perfect state of cleanliness, meeting the safety and health standards of its visitors, employees, and general users of the port.
The actions will consist of 214 aerial disinfections over a period of six months by cold fogging in common areas, on surfaces likely to be touched such as benches, handrails, knobs, counters, toilets and lifts. These works will be planned according to the weekly schedules of vessel arrivals and departures.
The work, which will take an estimated 90 to 150 minutes, will not interfere with the operation of the port and will preferably be carried out at night, using extraction installations for air renewal.
This contract, which is currently in the open tendering phase, has an initial budget of 97,000 euros and is expected to last for six months from the date the service is contracted. The deadline for receiving bids is 17 August 2021. Interested parties may submit their applications through the APB's e-tendering portal.
