This new infrastructure will increase the Port’s capacity to receive visitors in even better conditions. It will have a total mooring line of 700 metres, as ships can dock on both sides of 240 metres of its 460-metre length, as well as alongside the Llevant breakwater. All this will double the number of cruise ships that can dock simultaneously and allow the largest cruise liners in the world to moor at the Port.
The Port of Tarragona is looking into the installation of electrical connections to supply shore power for ships moored at the Balears Wharf. This will make the use of internal combustion engines unnecessary while at port, thus reducing pollution and allowing ships to save fuel while docked in Tarragona. The Port of Tarragona is working to ensure the sustainability of the Balears Wharf, an infrastructure designed to adapt to future challenges.
