ortAventura World is installing a photovoltaic power plant covering 100,000 m2


comprise 22,000 modules that will supply , which will


will prevent 4,000 tonnes of CO2 every year from being emitted into the atmosphere. This is the same amount of CO2 that would be absorbed by 930,000 trees. According to Fernando Aldecoa, managing director


of PortAventura World: “The solar park is a project that acts as a lever to promote change towards a more sustainable and responsible world. This vision allows us to remain at the forefront and continue to be leaders in sustainability amongst international tourist destinations”. The project is part of the company’s corporate


responsibility strategy. More specifically, it forms part of the environmental commitments aimed at reducing energy consumption and transition, contributing directly to the achievement of United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 7 and 13, two of the priority SDGs on which PortAventura World has the greatest impact. It is just one of the initiatives implemented by the resort


to support the move towards a new renewable energy model, focused on decarbonisation of the energy sector.


First visitors experience Efteling’s newest fairytale


Efteling – the fairy tale theme park in the south of Holland – has welcomed the very first visitors to its 30th fairytale in the Fairytale Forest, the Six Swans, located between the fairytales of Snow White and Cinderella. “Fairy tales have been the origin of


Efteling since 1952. That is why we continue to enrich the Fairytale Forest with new stories. This relatively unknown fairy tale is a classic – a beautiful and interactive addition that underlines our role as guardian of the fairy tale,” said Fons Jurgens, CEO of Efteling. Taken from the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, the Six Swans tells the story of


Elisa, the brave younger sister who has to break her brother’s spell. The 30th fairy tale in the beating


heart of the Dutch theme park can be experienced in two unique ways: on the back of a swan or by entering the castle on foot.


Andreas Veilstrup Andersen returns to Liseberg as CEO and president


Liseberg has completed the search for a new CEO and president. After a thorough process with more than 300 applicants and a strong field of candidates, the search has concluded with Liseberg recruiting back Andreas Veilstrup Andersen, whom announced his departure in April. As Park World went to press, Andreas had already returned to his previous


position at Liseberg. In this role, he will – amongst other things – continue to overlook Liseberg’s expansion project; a 454-room themed hotel and indoor water park, opening in conjunction with Liseberg’s centennial in 2023. “The main reason for my departure earlier this year was to find a more


sustainable arrangement around my family-logistics,” said Andersen. “This has been resolved with a more flexible contract. I look very much forward to returning to Liseberg – and to completing the many exciting projects we have initiated over the last few years.” Although Andersen’s time at Tivoli Gardens was short, the bond between the


two organisations remains strong: ‘Tivoli Gardens will always have a very special place in my heart. And I know that the very talented Tivoli Team will continue the exceptional transformation of this world-class destination,’ he said.
