The International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) has set the 1st July each year as the World Marine Aids to Navigation Day. In this first edition, the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) and Puertos del Estado [Spanish State Ports Authority], with the collaboration of the IALA, have organised a series of events in Palma.
The APB (Port Authority of the Balearic Islands) has purchased five new 100% electric vehicles that are to join its fleet, which is already largely made up of more environmentally-friendly cars: hybrid and fully electric vehicles, depending on each case. As such, and as part of its commitment to the environment, the APB is gradually renewing its fleet by incorporating less polluting vehicles.
For the tenth consecutive year, the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) is organising and sponsoring a new edition of its contest dedicated to paintings and photography of the ports in Palma, Alcudia, Mahon, Ibiza and La Savina, as well as the islands' lighthouses. The overall aim is to display the cultural heritage of the ports and their surrounding environment from an artistic point of view.
The International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) has designated 1 July of each year as World Marine Aids to Navigation Day. This first year, in conjunction with Puertos del Estado (the Spanish State-owned Port System) and the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB), IALA has chosen Palma as the venue for the main events on this day.
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) and Puertos del Estado [State Ports] organised the 8th Internal Legal Conference on the State Ports-owned Port System, which took place in Ibiza on 9th and 10th May. The State Attorney General, Consuelo Castro de Rey, and the president of the APB, Joan Gual de Torrella, were in charge of presenting and opening the conference.
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) will begin the improvement works on the cruise ship dock at the Port of Mahon in September, to not disrupt the activities of these ships during the tourist season, after awarding the works to Vías y Construcciones, S.A. for 4,490,405.34 euros.
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) took part today in a presentation of the LIBERA project, launched by the Spanish Ornithological Society (SEO/Birdlife) in alliance with Ecoembes. The key message of the campaign is to not throw waste into the sea, as our litter will be the only thing that survives (“No tires residuos al mar. En el fondo lo único que sobrevive es tu basura”). This is an awareness-raising campaign that seeks to stop littering at ports and to provide solutions for the community of people who use sports vessels.
