Port of Quebec: building for the future with citizens
Denis DAVOULT16 April 2018

In June, the Port of Quebec will host AIVP’s 16th World Conference. The event will also mark the thirtieth anniversary of AIVP’s creation, and the “Next Generation” will be at the heart of the debate. How is the future of the Port of Quebec being shaped? What are the four major projects now seen as key to its future and that of the city’s residents?

At AIVP’s World Conference in 2012, Mario Girard, President & CEO of the Port of Quebec and Vice-President of AIVP, emphasised the importance of developing port projects in complete transparency, involving citizens and the local community. This focus on dialogue between the city, port and citizens also led the Port of Quebec, in 2016, to sign the Port Center Missions Charter and join the AIVP Port Center network. The four projects described here perfectly illustrate this commitment to building the future of the port city of Quebec together, as part of an inclusive approach. Our 16th World Conference will no doubt afford an opportunity for a first-hand look at this strategy for a Next Generation port city.

The Port of Quebec is a member of AIVP since 2011

This announcement follows an agreement with Docks Logistics Spain, S.A., bringing forward the end of their concession which was to have run until 2022. Use of this emblematic building will then be returned to Consorcio Valencia 2007-CV07, which manages the marina. In March, CV07 launched a consultation process with a group of independent professionals and experts. The different proposals centre on the concept of a living space designed by the community as a whole, devoted to culture, education, research, etc.

Between plastics and ship waste, the challenges around waste in ports are reaching critical point
16 May 2018

Since the start of the year, China’s restrictive policy on plastic waste imports has been causing a build-up at European ports, where storage areas are becoming gradually saturated. Some countries are looking at landfill as a temporary solution. Elsewhere, such as at the Port of Amsterdam, new possibilities are being found, including turning waste into fuel. At the same time, Europe’s ports are calling for new legislation on the collection of ship waste to include higher taxation.
