Las Palmas, Spain (PortSEurope) June 26, 2019 – Las Palmas port authority plans a contract with Totisa Holdings SA for the construction and operation of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility for the supply of fuel to ships.
Totisa Holdings has proposed the construction of a facility covering 14,440 m² at the port’s África basin, including a 73.9 MW power plant.
The adjudication process, which should still go through several administrative phases before construction can begin, started about a year ago with the announcement of an application for the concession of public land by local company Hispania Petroleum.
However, the processing of the proposal was never completed by the port authority. The director of public agency Puertos de Las Palmas, Salvador Capella, explained months later that the project lacked “endorsement and economic viability”. Hispania Petroleum withdrew its initiative and at the end of July 2018 and it was re-formulated through one of its subsidiary companies, Totisa Holdings.
