The consultation period in which to submit arguments and observations regarding the Delimitation of Port Spaces and Uses (DEUP) proposal of the Port of Alcudia, approved last May by the Board of Directors of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB), is now open.
Interested parties can access the documentation on the website www.portsdebalears.com, at the offices of the APB in Palma (Moll Vell, 3- 5) and at the Port of Alcudia (Moll de Pescadors s/n), Monday to Friday from 9 am to 2 pm. They may also submit however many arguments and observations deemed appropriate within the period of 45 business days, starting from the day after its publication in the Official State Gazette on 12 June 2018.
The Delimitation of Port Spaces and Uses proposals are instruments provided for under Article 69 of the Consolidated Text of Law on State Ports and the Merchant Navy that aim to arrange port space according to the corresponding need.
The Port of Alcudia generates annual traffic amounting to over 2 million tonnes of goods and approximately 400,000 cruise ship passengers pass through its modern terminal. The combination of mooring places for sports vessels, the need for the supply of goods for consumption on the island and the transportation to and from Menorca and some ports on the peninsula, make the port stand out.
It has two very different areas: the commercial dock and the small-vessel dock, which is comprised by the fishing wharf and a sports port. Despite that, the port sees a lot of activity relating to the energy sector. At its facilities, coal, used to generate electricity, butane and propane are unloaded.
