Global Ports Holding and its local partner Sepcan have been granted a 15-year concession at Alicante Cruise Port, with GPH signing the agreement today.

The Port Authority of Alicante awarded preferred bidder status to an 80:20 joint venture between Global Ports and Sepcan last year following a public tender process.

GPH expects to take over the cruise operations in Alicante this month. 

Infrastructure development

The Port Authority of Alicante is currently enhancing the port area in a multimillion-euro investment. Plus, as part of the concession agreement, there are plans by Global Ports to invest up to 2m in refurbishing and modernising the cruise terminal.

Alicante receives more than 100,000 passengers annually.
