The Port of Málaga has been involved in a major restructuring of its facilities, as part of two major plans:
- The Expansion Plan which would double the Port area, providing greater operational capacity and, therefore, making possible the mooring of large vessels and the capture and consolidation of new types of traffic (container and vehicle).
- The Special City-Port Plan, with the granting of a number of areas by Málaga Port Authority to the city, thereby enabling it to develop new urban areas for recreational sporting, cultural and commercial use.
Below is outlined some of the building work carried out:
Special City-Port Plan
Quay 1 Muelle Uno
The Muelle Uno Project, which has been constructed and is being exploited by the company Unión de Iniciativas de Marina de la Farola, is a “leisure area and shopping centre by the sea”.
The design is carried out by the prestigious L35 firm of architects, being Pereda 4 Estudio in charge of its engineering, both of them following the instructions of “3.14, Gestión + Arquitectura”, company responsible for the works’ Project Management.
Muelle Uno has 14,000 sqm for high-level recreational and commercial use, in which restaurants are mixed with small-scale businesses and leisure. The picture is completed by a 4,000 sqm building for cultural use.
The project of this commercial and leisure area includes two car parkings, with over 1,000 parking spaces.
The total investment, including the full equipment of the premises, runs up to 80 million euros, having been open to the public in 2011.
Quay 2 – The Palm Grove
The renewed quay n. 2, which was built following the construction project “The Palm Grove of Surprises” includes a pedestrian area and two buildings with educational-cultural use, as well as a cruise passenger terminal for small-medium size ships. The area also houses two food premises and a great pergola all along the quay.
The investment amounts to 27 million euros, coming entirely from the Andalusian Regional Government’s Committee of Public Works and Housing, via EPSA (Andalusian Public Land Company).
The plan for the enlargement of the Port of Malaga begins to be studied by the end of the 20th century. It comes from the idea of creating a container and multipurpose terminal, and from the necessity of building a dock to protect this new terminal. The protecting dock was going to be dedicated to cruise traffic.
It is a 1,800m long dock heading South. The project, beginning in 1997, was officially inaugurated on July 24th 2001. It was co-financed by the Port Authority of Malaga and the EU through FEDER Funds.
Container and vehicle Terminal – Quay n. 9:
It is a 400,000 sqm platform gained to the sea. It started operations in April 2004, being the operator the Spanish company Terminales del Sudeste (today NOATUM Container Terminal Málaga). It offers a 723m long quay with 17m depth, plus a 170m long ro-ro berth.
The Project was co-financed by the Port Authority of Malaga and Dragados SPL (private company owning Terminales del Sudeste at that time), and FEDER Funds.
Cruise Terminals A and B:
A great Passenger Terminal was projected in the Eastern Area, to be developed in two phases. The complete project consists of a 13,700sqm building and two cruise berths.
The first phase of the terminal (Terminal B) was inaugurated, together with the Southern berth, on December 23rd 2007, beginning operations in February 2008. It was financed by the Port Authority of Malaga and FEDER Funds. The terminal is operated by the company Cruceros Málaga, S.A.
The Northern berth was inaugurated in October 2009, and its construction was financed following the same model as the terminal and the Southern berth.
In may 2011, the second stage (Terminal A) was finished, financing coming from Cruceros Málaga, S.A., who is also operating the facility.
New road access to the Eastern Area:
Road access to the Passenger Terminals, the Eastern Dock and the new marina has been enlarged, making the connection to the entrance of the Port easier and more secure.
The works were finished in 2011, and were financed by the Port Authority and Feder funds.
