WORLD NEWS Build begins in Málaga SPAIN: Island Global Yachting (IGY) and Ocean Capital Partners (OCP) – the leading Spanish company in investment of port assets – have started construction work on the development of IGY Marina Málaga. The marina, which will include new amenities and upgraded infrastructure, will offer superyachts convenient, high quality berthing in the centre of one of Spain’s most vibrant cities. When complete, IGY Marina Málaga will accommodate vessels between 24m (79ft) and 180m (590ft), offering IGY’s best-in-class levels of customer service and crew amenities, complete with features such as ISPS security, in-slip pump-out, waste management, full vessel concierge and power up to 2000 amps. Guests can take advantage of the close proximity to restaurants, bars and shops, as well as the beach, which is just 200m (660ft) from the marina. Further afield, visitors can enjoy the local culture, the many historical sites that date back over 1,000 years and play golf on any one of over 100 Andalusian courses. Málaga is one of Spain’s fastest growing cities and its proximity to both the Atlantic and Mediterranean seas, as well as Gibraltar (convenient for checking out of the EU), make it an attractive option for the regional and global superyacht fleet. With an average of 325 days of sunshine per year, it is an attractive winter haven with year-round berthing available in addition to long-term slip opportunities. The marina will be developed over the summer of 2021 and fully open before year end so as to offer winter berthing options. Tourism infrastructure for central Lisbon PORTUGAL: The Portuguese public entity ATL (Lisbon Tourism Association) has completed inaugural projects for the renovation of the Lisbon waterfront. Refusing to allow the COVID pandemic to alter its plans to improve infrastructure, ATL made rehabilitation of the city centre waterfront its main objective for 2021, focusing on the city’s relationship with the river, creating safe and easy access piers for tour boats while maintaining the aesthetics and charm of the historic riverside. Lindley was selected to supply the new nautical infrastructure and delivered a 30m (98ft) long landing pier for tourist boats in front of the iconic Praça do Comércio. The pier was built using timber-decked concrete pontoons accessed by a 20m (66ft) long steel gangway moored on reinforced 20m (66ft) radius arms. The second project, a few hundred metres upriver, is at Doca da Marinha (above), a former navy basin now converted into a small harbour and berthing area for tourist boats. This project involved the supply of concrete floating wave attenuators to ensure proper protection of the basin and the supply of steel pontoons moored on piles. The project allows visitors to enjoy trips aboard boats typical of the Tejo River. Both projects were equipped with light, electricity and water pedestals, as well as the required safety equipment. – May/June 2021 13
