Las Palmas, Spain (PortSEurope) June 24, 2019 – Employees of Spanish company Hidramar protested at the headquarters of the Las Palmas port authority to demand that measures be taken against the prohibition of Hamilton to let them enter the Reina Sofía dock to carry out the contracted repair of the Deepwater Corcovado ship.
Hamilton is in charge of the docking of the ship but has communicated to its owner that it is not able to do so. The situation has ensured that puts in danger a hundred jobs, Hidramar said.
According to the president of the port authority, there is a concession procedure requested by Hamilton, as it currently holds a temporary concession in the Reina Sofía dock. “They can not deny anyone entering because they do not have ownership for it,” Juan José Cardona said.
Representatives of Hamilton denied commenting on the matter.
Hidramar is a service company located in Las Palmas Port, Gran Canarias, offering services and technical assistance to the oil & gas industry and naval sector.
