News aids to navigation
It was reported from Barcelona on 13 February that Colombia’s National Maritime Authority, DIMAR, had renewed the marine marking in Barranquilla (Colombia). The Barcelona-based company Almarin carried out the supply and establishment of twenty-eight buoys for the Magdalena river and also provided eight shore-based beacons. Included in this project were four buoys for the neighbouring Santa Marta Port.
With this project DIMAR continues its process of homogenization and improvement of the aids to navigation in Colombia, in accordance with IALA requirements, and as part of its primary goal of improving safety and security for mariners in Colombian waters.
