Over the next four years, the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has agreed to allocate an annual €189,000 to detecting and repairing leaks in the Port of Palma’s water supply.
The Port of Palma adds a further 16 charging points for electric vehicles and installs a new grey water and sewage suction system for vessels used in yacht charters. These improvements are the result of an investment of €1,786,274 made by the company La Lonja Marina Charter S.L., after the extension of its concession was approved.
The recently completed investments made by La Lonja Marina Charter also included resurfacing the jetties and pontoons, improving and modernising the drinking water and lighting systems, safety and security, the fibre optic network, Wi-fi, retractable bollards and replacing the service pedestals. All this is part of the APB's commitment to include environmental considerations in the planning, management, design and implementation processes of its infrastructures.
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands' (APB) Board of Directors agreed in February 2019 to extend the concession by four and a half years at the request of the concessionaire, in accordance with the provisions of the Recast Text of the State Ports and Merchant Navy Law (TRLPEMM). As a result, the concession period ends on 29 September 2023.
The facilities managed by La Lonja Marina Charter in the Port of Palma consist of 2,240 square metres of land and 16,040 square metres of water, and include two jetties, measuring 129 metres and 116 metres respectively, for mooring tourist boats.
