The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has approved an internal document, drawn up by the Quality, Environment, Innovation and CSR Department, to eliminate single-use plastic from its fac
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has started work on improving the energy efficiency of the over six kilometres of public lighting at the Port of Mahon which, according to estimates, will bring energy savings of over 60%.
The overhaul involves replacing 261 old lights with new LED technology fittings and the installation of 395 new lighting points in previously poorly lit areas, such as the access road to the north coast.
The work consists of installing modern LED lights that are resistant to humidity, saline environments, atmospheric dust and mechanical and electrical effects, as well as introducing management systems with five different lighting levels.
All of this will give the walkway a new, improved appearance and, above all, will increase the system's energy efficiency and facilitate preventive maintenance.
The project has a budget of €1,054,428 and is scheduled to be completed in March 2021.
In addition, the project has obtained a subsidy of €236,804.57, granted by the Institute for the Diversification and Saving of Energy (IDAE).
