The construction employer thanks Puertos de Tenerife for its work to reinforce the value of the port of the capital

The Provincial Federation of Construction Entities of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, FEPECO, has thanked the Port Authority of Santa Cruz de Tenerife “for its efforts to increase the value of the port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, a vital facility for the socioeconomic development of the island”.

This was stated by the president of the organization, Óscar Izquierdo, during the visit made together with the members of the board of directors of said Federation to the president of Puertos de Tenerife, Carlos González, and the director of the entity, Javier Mora, with who gathered to send them this thanks and learn about future projects not only in the port of Tenerife but also in the Granadilla dock.

The members of FEPECO made it clear that “if there is a priority place to defend and promote, it is the port, since we live on islands and its activity is vital”. His assertion was also resounding that “strengthening the port of Tenerife is strengthening the Island and therefore, enlarging this facility means enlarging Tenerife”.

Óscar Izquierdo said that although “in the Canary Islands there are no air connectivity problems, it is necessary to increase maritime connectivity so that the import and export of goods is much more fluid.” “It is necessary, therefore, to enhance the number of maritime frequencies between Tenerife and the peninsular territory.”

Another aspect in which the FEPECO board showed unanimity was its support and commitment to the Granadilla dock, a statement that was also thanked by the president of the Tenerife Port Authority, Carlos González, who outlined some of the strategic lines for this new facility, putting thus manifesting his need and strength.

In this sense, Carlos González recalled that the port of Granadilla is destined to become a deployment point for offshore wind power offshoreconcentrating all the naval repair activity on which its deployment in the Canary Islands will be supported.

This activity could also configure the new dock as a center of international activity for the reception and assembly of the parts that make up the windmills, subsequently proceeding to their export, which gives greater added value to said activity in which, he recalled González, “the role to be played by the local business fabric will be decisive”.

Carlos González also emphasized the forecast that the port of Granadilla will be the first in Spain to process a wind farm offshore and its role in promoting the decarbonisation of the Blue Economy, in particular that related to the port sector and maritime transport.
