A NEW CONCEPT IS INTENDED: THE DIFFERENTIATION IN INNOVATION AND NAVIGABILITY 365 DAYS A YEAR!
The capacity of the Olhão Yachting Harbour is currently of 700 places. When we have started the project, we only had 300 places; we reorganized the entire existing area, added 100 more places, and carried out a rigorous maintenance of the existing structure.
As far as the water mirror is concerned, in a second phase, we will expand our Maritime Recreation Port to about 500 mooring stations. Dredging maintenance is also planned throughout the concession area.
In addition to the interventions in the maritime part, we will start, still, in 2018, the construction of all terrestrial infrastructures. These includes nautical services areas, administration, commerce and catering/restaurants and a fueling area, among others.
Our company also intends to follow a set of good environmental practices, to be considered a Green Port, especially regarding the oil and waste management, as well as, with all the activity management involved, which will be more demanding.
INNOVATION IS THE SUCCESSFUL EXPLOITATION OF NEW IDEAS.
