Gandía, Spain (PortSEurope) May 12, 2020 – Autoridad Portuaria de Valencia (APV – Valenciaport, Port Authority of Valencia) has relaunched its investment plan, with the award of works to improve the carrying capacity of the Serpis dock in the port of Gandia. This 8-month work, valued at over €2.1 million, has been awarded to Torrescamara after a public tender in which 11 bids were submitted. The
award will create employment as well as improving the capacity of the port. This award represents a future commitment to the development of the port of the capital of Safor and that will allow you to replace its current cranes with others of higher power. Currently, the two cranes located on the Serpis dock have a load capacity of 1.5 tons, which limits the performance of the enclosure. The works to be undertaken will allow the installation of more modern cranes and capable of working with loads of up to 40 tons and with a range of up to 33 meters, which will allow the port’s performance and agility to be expanded. The improvement of the Serpis dock is another example of the commitment of APV for the port of Gandia, which will become the first port in Europe to be energy self-sufficient with the installation of a 2 MW photovoltaic power plant that will be located at the top of the southern access that came into operation last January. The new southern access, which involved an investment of €2.35 million for the construction of two fully automated entrance and two exit locks, allowed more than 100 trucks a day to be freed from traffic to the Grau neighborhood. APV is the public body responsible for the management of three state-owned ports located along 80 kilometers on the eastern edge of the Spanish Mediterranean: Valencia, Sagunto and Gandía.
