After years of decreasing traffic in the port of Alcúdia, in 2021 coal is no longer among the goods embarked and/or disembarked in the port.
As part of his first official visit to Formentera, the President of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB), Joan Gual de Torella, met today with the President of the Council, Alejandra Ferrer, and reviewed everything currently related to the port area of la Savina, with a particular emphasis on commencing the second phase of works outlined in the new Special Plan for the port of la Savina.
During the meeting, they discussed all aspects relating to what the new buildings will be used for and where to construct new installations for the fishing industry, among other things. On this matter, the President of the APB requested that open spaces are also incorporated so as to facilitate all kinds of training and innovation activities throughout the year.
Furthermore, Alejandra Ferrer also highlighted the importance of the handover agreement signed with the APB, which has allowed for a museum collection to be installed inside the Mola Lighthouse. In response, the APB President congratulated the Council on the project with the following words: "it will be a model for other lighthouses".
On a final note, Joan Gual de Torrella also explained that they covered two other important topics in their meeting: the finalising of the first phase of works at the Port of la Savina, which has made it possible, he said, "to open up the seafront and create a welcoming place for both tourists and residents to go", and the news that the APB will shortly be installing some sensors in la Savina to measure the air quality in the port area, whose results will be available online.
Other participants in the meeting were the Vice-Presidents of the Council of Formentera, Ana Juan and Susana Labrador, and Councillors Rafael González, Pep Marí and Bartomeu Escandell. On behalf of the APB, its director Juan Carlos Plaza and the delegate of the APB in the Ports of Ibiza and la Savina, Ignacio Revilla were also in attendance.
