Hong Kong: flats over the container terminal?

This is one of the solutions being studied by the government to meet the strong pressure for housing. The other option would be to relocate the terminal concerned, Kwai Tsing Container Terminal, which currently handles 80% of the territory’s traffic. For the Managing Director, the first option is worth considering and technically feasible. It could provide housing for tens of thousands of people. Relocating the 380-hectare terminal, on the other hand, raises the difficulty of finding an alternative site. A joint port-city solution which is unprecedented to say the least! It will be proposed to the public in March.

The Rotterdam Makers District is officially launched

This common initiative by the City and the Port will bring together RDM Rotterdam and M4H Rotterdam, which are on opposite sides of the river. Participants in last year’s AIVP world conference saw for themselves how RDM Rotterdam has created an association between the Port, Rotterdam University and the business sector to encourage innovation in the shipping economy. The other bank, once occupied by fruit-shipping activities, is gradually being settled by innovative companies, offices linked to the design industry and Port XL.

Le Havre Port Center opens its doors

lehavrelogoPortCenter_gm-decembre 2013The official inauguration of the Le Havre Port Center took place on 9 December with the five founding partners in attendance: the City, the Port, CCI, the Maritime Union of Port Businesses and the Conurbation Community. Their shared hope is that a true port culture will emerge among the city’s inhabitants.

Apart from the founding partners, Le Havre Port Center also enjoys the support of the dockers’ union, private companies and cultural associations. They are fully associated with the initiative, the concept of which was launched by AIVP 3 years ago. Today, Le Havre is launching its Port Center in a configuration which aspires to evolve considerably in the coming years: to further develop partnerships with schools and teacher representatives; to institute innovative visitor routes in agreement with port, maritime and industrial companies; and to offer educational workshops and presentations which testify to the wealth of the past, present and future activities of the port of Le Havre. ©Photos AIVP

The Missions Charter of a Port Center is published

PCN_charte_gm_decembre 2013It is more than three years since AIVP decided to take up the idea of Port Centers, a tool at the service of improved integration between the city, the port and the public. Today AIVP publishes its Missions Charter of a Port Center. The document, drawn up by AIVP and all its partners in the Port Center Network (PCN), defines in ten points the essential challenges and objectives of any Port Center. This innovative Charter, fruit of the association’s work, has already been adopted in more than seven port-cities which have a Port Center or a Port Center project (Anvers Havencentrum Lillo, Genoa Port Center, Port Center du Havre, Dunkirk Maritime Museum, Houston Maritime Museum, Ashdod Visitor Center, Livorno Port Center).

The initiative has been blessed by other port networks such as ESPO (European Sea Ports Organisation) and AAPA (American Association of Port Authorities). The private operator Contship Italia Group, with its Porto LAB project, also decided to support and encourage this commitment. The Missions Charter of a Port Center will be very widely developed in the AIVP world-wide network of port-cities. We hope it will accompany all those who are interested in opening their ports to the public, making young people aware of port-related professions and activities, and developing the emergence of a living port-city culture.

The port of Hamilton set to pursue its industrial operations while continuously improving its integration into the urban fabric

For the port’s CEO, this strategy is vital. Space is scarce and redeveloping the port on its current site will be a priority for the local economy, although the strategy must not prevent urban development. Creating more green spaces and landscaping the port, while working in permanent consultation with local residents, is essential.
