The expansion of the dock of the commercial dock of Puerto del Rosario is considered the last great work to finish defining the port area of the capital of Majorera. Puertos de Las Palmas wants it to be put out to tender this November, as stated by the entity's president, Luis Ibarra, to Diario de Fuerteventura .

The tender budget is close to 33 million euros and the execution period, once the work begins, would be about 17 months. For the year 2021, the Port Authority contemplates an item of 10.2 million euros, which would rise to 11 million in the year 2022.

The rest of the investment would be completed in 2023. Until December 31 of that year, the European funds that will be used for the execution of the works, specific for maritime works in the non-capital islands, can be justified.

The project highlights that the expansion of the commercial dock in Puerto del Rosario is "an essential measure" for increasing the capacity of the port of Majorero and for the "substantial improvement of the quality of service".

"The increase in shelter in the southern area of the port allows, among other actions, to increase the quality of operations at the docks of the port and the safety of ship manoeuvrers", the project highlights.

In this way, as justified by the Port Authority, which encompasses the management of the ports of interest to the State in the three islands of the province of Las Palmas, "the creation of a new dock attached to the dock, preferably intended for the unloading of fuels , increases the port's capacity and improves its security ”.

The projected dock starts from the southern area of the outer edge of the current platform of the port and has two alignments: a first one of 100 meters, which will not enable the docking of boats in its interior part, and another, superimposed on the previous one , 375.2 meters long.

The aforementioned 100-meter section will be executed with a layer of concrete blocks, while the longest section, which will be the one enabled for the docking of boats, will be built with prefabricated boxes.

The project contemplates the placement of nine precast concrete caissons, each with a length of more than 41 meters.

The viability of the work is in question nine months after being awarded

The project of the new dock-dock in Puerto del Rosario will not come out after the complicated situation of the tender of the work. The port expansion, proposed to make simultaneous operations easier with 250 meters more in length, is on hold due to the increase in the price of materials as a result of the war in Ukraine. This circumstance has put the world economy in check and Fuerteventura has not been an exception.
But it all goes back to the month of May of last 2021. It was then that the Board of Directors of the Port Authority of Las Palmas approved the contracting file for the tender for the works of extension of the dock of the commercial dock in Puerto del Rosario. Against an initial budget of 30.83 million euros, the final award was for the Temporary Union of Companies formed by Rover Maritime S.L. and Satocan for a total of 25.76 million in January 2022.
The forecast for the execution period had been 17 months, so the most optimistic calculations estimated the completion of the works in December 2023. However, the viability of the project is on hold. Sources from the Port Authority confirm that the work is in question, given that the award had been made with pre-war prices.
For their part, technical and business sources assure that the project would have been completely lost after this vicissitude, which is sometimes insurmountable for many companies in the present war context. The rise in prices has made many reconsider readjusting their numbers within the framework allowed by law for each specific case.
In any case, after the disastrous news the numbers make it clear that we must continue working for the extension of the pier in the capital of Majorca. The activity indicators show a noticeable evolution both in the commercial and tourist fields, as well as its status as a gateway for the supply of the island of Fuerteventura.
