The port of Palma de Mallorca is one of the most important ports in Spain, both for trade and tourism.
Due to its strategic location in the Mediterranean, the port of Palma is an important gateway for ships sailing to and from North Africa, Europe and the Balearic Islands.
In recent years, the port of Palma has experienced a significant increase in the number of ships visiting it. This increase in port activity has led to the need to expand the port in order to accommodate more ships and guarantee better traffic management..
A few years ago, a project was undertaken to enlarge the port of Palma de Mallorca, where the main objective was to increase the port’s capacity to accommodate larger ships and improve safety in the port..
This expansion had (and has) a significant impact on the local economy, as it allowed the arrival of more tourists and increased commercial activity in the port.
It also had a positive impact on employment, as new jobs related to the management of the port were created.
One of the main challenges of the Palma port expansion project was to guarantee environmental sustainability. To this end, measures were studied to minimise its environmental impact, such as the use of clean technologies and the implementation of environmental management systems.
This enlargement work included, among others, the refurbishment of building no. 3 of the moll Vell, the improvement of the operation and the port-city environment in the Molinar de Levante dock, the partial commissioning for public use of the enlargement of the esplanade of the Poniente Norte quay and the reform of the port’s Maritime Station No. 4..
With the refurbishment work on building no. 3 of the moll Vell, a new cultural space was created which will house the Port-City Interpretation Centre (Port Centre), which will provide information on the activities carried out in the port and show its inseparable link with the city.
The port facilities and the urban space were improved thanks to the improvement of the port-city environment in the Dársena del Molinar de Levante.
Also, the construction of an esplanade of some 36,000 square metres, starting from the Poniente Este quay with a length of 600 metres and a width of 100 metres, has improved the services provided to ferry and cruise passengers..
The reform of Maritime Station No. 4, with a surface area of 1,169.73 m2 and an extension with the construction of a two-storey metal structure building annexed to it, also meant a change for the better in the Port of Palma de Mallorca.
And for all these reforms and extensions, a large amount of iron and steel was used for the construction and refurbishment of the infrastructures.
Metal materials that are so necessary in construction projects such as shot-blasted and primed beams.
The expansion of the port of Palma de Mallorca was an important project for the future and for the economy of the region.
And for this type of emblematic works, steel is used as one of the main construction materials..
At Hierros Mora Antón we have been working with steel since 1954 for construction projects that need a solid company to work with to carry out their project..
