The president of the Balearic Islands Port Authority, José María Urrutia, and the chief of the National Police Headquarters in the Balearic Islands, Antonio Emilio Jarabo, today presented to the media the new location that the port of Palma has granted to the National Police in Ferry Terminal 3.
The APB has acquired two new gangways for boarding / disembarking passengers at the port of Palma. Large cruise ships have problems with traditional gangways because the angle of slope to access their entrances is very pronounced. The new gangways, which are located at Ferry Terminals 1 and 3, are in two sections and the steepness of the slope angle is reduced. The APB will receive the new walkways, constructed and installed by the company TEAM, in the first week of April. They will enter into service after making the relevant trials and training the operators.
The president of the APB, José María Urrutia leads the Balearic delegation to the Miami Seatrade Cruise Shipping fair, to promote the Balearic Islands as an attractive cruise destination. "This is a joint effort led by the APB to reinforce the idea of the importance of the destination, that is to say, the combination of port infrastructure and tourist offer, and to present this package in Miami," said Urrutia.
Once again, the Balearic delegation, headed by the chairman of the APB, José María Urrutia, will participate next week in the Miami Seatrade Cruise Shipping Convention, the world´s largest cruise industry fair. They will be representing the Balearic Islands in this promotional event organized by the State Ports every year in this American city.
67.3% of cruise passengers who made landfall last year at the port of Palma were very satisfied with the tourist product experienced while visiting the island of Majorca, according to a satisfaction survey conducted for the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) for the 2011 season.
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has awarded the tender for the dredging work at the Port of Maó to the company Sacyr. The total amount of the tender is €2,001,022.17, including VAT.

La APB ha convocado un nuevo concurso para la gestión de los amarres de la ribera norte en el puerto de Maó tras la renuncia de Ocibar. En el pliego de condiciones del concurso destaca la reducción de las tarifes máximas propuestas para embarcacions con amarre permanente. De esta forma, las tarifas máximas para embarcaciones de base tendrán como tope 0,35 euros por metro cuadrado al día, frente a los 0,70 euros del anterior concurso.
The APB (Port Authority of the Balearic Islands) has protected the underwater site found during the redevelopment of the docks of Botafoc in the port of Ibiza and has moved the material, by prescription of the Insular Commission of Territory, Urban Planning and Historical-Artistic Heritage (Ciothupa), to the National Museum of Underwater Archaeology (ARQUA) in Cartagena, for scientific-historical investigation.
La nueva estación marítima de Alcúdia dará la bienvenida el próximo 26 de julio al Sea Cloud, un crucero turístico de 109 metros de eslora y del consignatario Transcoma Baleares. La embarcación hará escala en el puerto de Alcúdia procedente de Maó y con destino a Ciutadella. El Sea Cloud será el primer crucero que llegue a Alcúdia tras las últimas obras realizadas por la APB en las que se ha invertido más de 30 millones y que han supuesto la construcción de una estación marítima y pasarelas y mejoras en el calado.
