The company, a member of the Cluster since its inception, wants to position Barcelona as a destination for long-haul ships. The project will include some reforms that, once completed, will offer 23 new moorings for superiors up to 70 meters long. According to Marina Port Vell, 1 superhero generates 3 million euros a year for Barcelona.
Marina Port Vell has announced an investment of 20 million euros in 2022 to increase the port's capacity to accommodate superiors. The refurbishment will make it possible to locate 23 new moorings to accommodate boats up to 70 meters long. With this investment, the total area for the mooring of large vessels will exceed 8,500 square meters.
This investment will be accompanied by a redevelopment project that will affect 17,637 square meters. The spaces that remain within these reforms are the docks of Baix Muralla, El Dipòsit, Barceloneta, Spain and Rellotge. The remodeling of the space includes the installation of charging points for electric vehicles and the creation of new spaces where vegetation will play a key role.
Ignacio Erroz, general manager of Marina Port Vell, pointed out that the actions would be completed in approximately 12 or 14 months. Beyond the two major actions, the expansion of moorings and redevelopment, the third leg is that it plays a more important technical role. A new fuel supply system will be built that will reduce the risk of environmental pollution and improve infrastructure safety.

It should be remembered that, according to Marina Port Vell, 1 superiot generates an economic impact of 3 million euros per year for the city of Barcelona.
