2022 will be a year of anniversaries: the 150th since the creation of the Harbour Board and the 30th of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands as we refer to it today.
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands will construct a new 16 million euro passenger terminal in the port of Alcudia. The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has opened the competition for the construction of the new passenger terminal in the port of Alcudia, with an estimated budget of 15.908.496.36 euros. The project will include the construction of two fixed footbridges for boarding and disembarking passengers.The building will have a surface area of approximately 3,600 square meters, with a height of under twelve meters. In addition, it will have a parking zone for cars and buses. The passenger terminal will be located on the recent extension of the Muelles del Poniente (Western Docks): a surface area of 27,500 square meters into which the PAB has invested six million euros.The terminal will be distributed over a ground floor and two upper floors and will be adapted according to the related architectural standards. Boarding and disembarking zones for passengers will be separate and these activities will be carried out via the fixed footbridges that will connect the building to the docks. The building will also house a zone for invoicing baggage, shipping agents offices, a cafeteria and a restaurant, among other services.Environmental measures will be anticipated in order to obtain the rational use of energy in the building. The project includes plans for implementing heating and illumination systems, among other operations, which will optimize the use of natural light and solar energy.
