Puertos del Estado and Alicante Port Authority discuss 2020 Business Plan

Alicante, Spain (PortSEurope) October 28, 2020 – The president of Puertos del Estado, the state-owned organisation responsible for the management of state-owned ports, Francisco Toledo, has held a meeting with Juan Antonio Gisbert and Carlos Eleno, president and director, of the Alicante Port Authority in which they agreed on the 2020 Business Plan – 2024, a period in which more than €140 million will be invested. The main investments, which will be
divided into three large groups are port-city action: with the public investment for the improvement of docks 1 and 2, giving continuity to the private investment project that will deal with docks 4, 6, 8 and 10, corresponding to those adjacent to the Marina and the creation of a pedestrian ring in the inner dock. Sustainability and energy: where the Parque del Mar will be extended to the Casa Mediterráneo and the energy efficiency of all the port lighting will be improved. Port infrastructures: with the reinforcement of the docks of the fishing dock. Also mentioned was the need to promote a Collaboration Agreement with ADIF to create a siding for 750 m on the Alicante-La Encina line. In terms of space planning, the 6th specific modification of the Special Plan for the Port of Alicante, scheduled for 2021, will expand the opportunity to offer the use of offices in Sector 6 of the port. Despite the fall in traffic, the public body made a special effort in the application of economic reactivation measures due to the virus, which meant for companies a total saving of €1.4 million, through the reduction of rates. In addition, the Alicante Port Authority granted deferrals and installments of payment, without requiring guarantees and without accrual of late payment interest, amounting to €2.3 million.
