DUB_charlier_tailleOKThe urban waterfront concept was introduced in the eighties by the Washington DC-based Waterfront Center, and a high number of such waterfronts can be found in North America. A series of these will be briefly presented in the central part of the paper, including the most diversified of these, Los Angeles (San Pedro), whose potential is probably the highest. Before this, to make a link with the situation dealt with by the keynote speaker, we will take an in-depth look  a the most iconic of the world’s working waterfront, Cape Town, to identify the main ingredients of successful working waterfront and to see how they combine. In the third, final part of the presentation, we will turn to a few other worldwide examples, to show how diverse and unique are the combinations encountered between these ingredients, that make working waterfront different from conventional waterfront, where the main concern is just access to the water for leisure, with no other economic dimension.

As a research professor at the Department of Geography at the University of Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, Dr Jacques Charlier a written extensively in the last forty years about ports and maritime transports, especially about containers, cruises and waterfronts. He started studying European seaports, and he extended thereafter his scientific investigations to North American as well as African, then Asian ports and waterfronts, with more than 125 papers and book chapters.
Besides lecturing in Louvain-la-Neuve and in an interuniversity MA degree in transports and logistics in Brussels, he had visiting positions at the Sorbonne Universities in Paris and Abu Dhabi. And in 2000 as well as in 2012, he was also the President of the Belgian Royal Academy of Overseas Sciences. He attended the very first IACP conference in Le Havre in 1988, and has co-operated with the association since these early days, including as the one of the authors of one of its reports in 2006 about best practices on some European waterfronts.

Eamonn O Reilly TailleOK2En las últimas décadas, el Puerto de Dublín ha experimentado el mismo desafío existencial que muchos otros puertos activos de todo el mundo debido a un quiebre en la relación entre el puerto y la ciudad. Este desafío resultó particularmente evidente durante el boom económico previo al colapso de 2008 y culminó con el rechazo en 2010 del proyecto de expansión de largo plazo del puerto.
Desde 2010, la Dublin Port Company ha trabajado para establecer un plan de desarrollo que pueda ser sustentado por los actores de la ciudad. El Proyecto de remodelación de la dársena Alexandria (ABR – Alexandria Basin Redevelopment) es el primer proyecto de gran escala de este plan. El Proyecto ABR está siendo considerado por la autoridad de planificación nacional (An Bord Pleanála) y ha sido respaldado enérgicamente por el Consejo Municipal de Dublín.
Desde 2010, el reconocimiento a la importancia de la contribución que el Puerto puede y debe hacer al ambiente urbano es un aspecto fundamental del nuevo planteamiento aplicado por la Dublin Port Company. Este planteamiento posee muchas facetas, incluido el diseño urbano, el patrimonio industrial, la planificación del transporte, un punto de vista histórico, las artes, la participación de la comunidad y los eventos públicos.
El Plan Regulador de 2012 a 2040 de la Dublin Port Company refleja estas facetas y ha generado numerosos proyectos grandes y pequeños que están ayudando a reconstruir la relación Puerto-Ciudad en Dublín basándose en un working waterfront integrado con la remodelación de los terrenos de los muelles a lo largo del histórico Río Liffey.

Eamonn O’Reilly was appointed Chief Executive of Dublin Port Company in August 2010 having previously held the position of Chief Executive at Portroe Stevedores, the Dublin Port based cargo handling business, since 2005. Eamonn also held the role of group development manager of Portroe’s parent company, Doyle Shipping Group, during that time.
Prior to joining the Doyle Shipping Group, Eamonn was Project Manager for Securicor Ireland and has also worked as a management consultant with KPMG. He served as Chief Executive of Marine Terminals Limited between 1992 and 1996.
Eamonn started his career as an engineer with Irish Cement Limited before working overseas in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the Congo.

Deirdre ScullyB-tailleOKEn la actualidad, el Ayuntamiento de Dublín es la principal autoridad en la regeneración de un área fundamental del antiguo puerto y los muelles de la Ciudad, en North Lotts y Grand Canal Dock. Esta área clave de más de 66 hectáreas, administrada antiguamente por la Docklands Development Authority de Dublín, es, y seguirá siendo, un nodo de crecimiento en el corazón de la Ciudad. Al crear una estrategia de cómo va a crecer y progresar esta área en el futuro, el Ayuntamiento prepara un plan estatutario especial para el área que ofrece planificación acelerada de terrenos municipales, denominada Zona de Desarrollo Estratégico, nombre que le da el Gobierno, que reconoce la importancia económica de esta área a nivel nacional. Aún quedan más de 22 hectáreas de terreno vacantes en el área del plan y estos terrenos tienen potencial para ofrecer hasta 2.600 residencias nuevas y entre 300.000 y 366.000 m² de comercios.
Este proyecto de regeneración de los antiguos Muelles es esencial dentro de la Ciudad porque es el vínculo entre los terrenos portuarios existentes y el centro histórico de Dublín. También surge como un Nuevo nodo dentro de la Ciudad por derecho propio; con creciente reputación como ubicación atractiva para la industria de las TIC, además de servicios financieros y legales. Aspecto clave para el éxito del área, que DCC pretende continuar, es la importancia de la inversión en el sector público, en la realización de nuevos espacios y parques, en la reformulación de calles y el fortalecimiento de la conexión entre la Ciudad y el Puerto.

Deirdre Scully, Bachelor of Arts, Master of Regional & Urban Planning, Master of Arts (Local Government Management) is currently working as senior planner in Dublin City Council co-ordinating the delivery of the North Lotts and Grand Canal Dock Strategic Development Zone.  Previously Deirdre worked on local area plans in Dublin City Council and previously as the Regional Planning Guidelines officer with the Dublin & Mid-East Regional Authorities and lead the preparation and adoption of the current Regional Planning Guidelines for the Greater Dublin Area (2010), and the Retail Strategy for the Greater Dublin Area.  Her previous experience includes working on the 2005 Fingal County Development Plan, and a number of years working in development management in Fingal, Drogheda, South Dublin and Louth County Authorities and community planning in Ballymun, Dublin.

Los tres ecosistemas del Working waterfront de San Diego (Los EE.UU)

Descargar la ponencia / fichero pdf – 9.5 Mo

DUR-BobNelson-photo_tailleOKEl working waterfront urbano puede considerarse como un conjunto de ecosistemas industrial, social y biológico que interactúan entre sí. Los ecosistemas son comunidades de cosas vivas junto con cosas no vivas en su ambiente.
San Diego es el puerto situado más al sur de la costa oeste de los Estados Unidos. Su frente costero industrial es sede de importantes astilleros, además de tratar el 8% de las importaciones automotrices de los Estados Unidos, cerca de 500.000 toneladas de fruta fresca, graneles y cargas de proyecto, junto con cruceros. Esta actividad genera 23.000 empleos en el frente costero y en la economía local. La Bahía de San Diego Bay alberga también a 52 buques de guerra y posee la mayor concentración de personal militar en el mundo. El Puerto, la Ciudad de San Diego, General Dynamics/NASSCO, BAE y otras entidades están llevando a cabo la mayor remoción de sedimentos tóxicos de la historia de la Bahía de San Diego, retirando 100.000 yardas cúbicas que amenazaban la cadena alimentaria de la bahía. Mientras tanto, los trabajos de barcos pesados se expanden con dos embarcaderos completos en el muelle y un dique seco adicional en progreso. Para proteger los barrios cercanos, el Puerto solo permite el acceso a las terminales portuarias de camiones modernos, con motores diesel menos contaminantes, y ha incorporado energía eléctrica costera para reducir las emisiones de diesel. En medio del éxito, los desafíos del Puerto son principalmente de índole social. Los planes de la ciudad de un barrio adyacente se han traducido en una tensa división entre los empleadores industriales y los residentes locales por el uso del suelo y los estacionamientos. Las diferencias no resueltas entre el consejo directivo del Puerto han sofocado el crecimiento del negocio de importación automotriz del Puerto.

DUB_Jonas Cognell_photoEl buque de pasajeros Danica, de propiedad de Stena Line, es el primer barco del mundo en servicio regular conectado a una red de calefacción urbana.
El Stena Danica posee capacidad para 2275 pasajeros y opera la ruta Gotemburgo-Fredrikshavn 650 veces al año. A través de un innovador proyecto de demostración, se conecta a la red de calefacción urbana cuando llega al Puerto de Gotemburgo en vez de calefaccionarse con las calderas a petróleo utilizadas anteriormente.
Se calcula que el cambio de petróleo liviano a calefacción urbana reducirá las emisiones de CO2 en hasta 500 toneladas/año (-60%). También va a contribuir en gran medida a mejorar la calidad del aire de Gotemburgo ya que reduce las emisiones de SOx y NOx del barco en más de un 90% anual. Por último, pero no menos importante, disminuirá además los niveles de ruido en el vecindario.
Este esquema de demostración pionera forma parte del proyecto CELSIUS, financiado por el Séptimo Programa Marco de Investigación de la Unión Europea. El proyecto de demostración se llevó a cabo mediante la cooperación de Göteborg Energi, Stena Line y la Ciudad de Gotemburgo.

DUB-Photo_Gilles_lecaillonTradicionalmente, las infraestructuras portuarias poseen una contribución ecológica muy reducida porque han sido diseñadas y construidas tomando poco o nada en consideración los ecosistemas marinos existentes. Dado que la mayoría de la flora y fauna marina reside en áreas costeras, los cambios en las costas producidos por la actividad humana son solo una de las razones claves de las pérdidas de hábitat y, en consecuencia, de la decadencia de la biodiversidad marina. GIREL-3R es un programa de investigación y desarrollo encabezado por las autoridades portuarias de Marsella-Fos. Con este proyecto, el Puerto busca soluciones ecológicas innovadoras en materia de ingeniería para compensar los daños causados por su operación y las futuras operaciones de desarrollo. ECOCEAN ha implementado dos procesos pioneros con el objetivo de proteger a los peces jóvenes de la elevada depredación que se produciría dentro del área portuaria por la escasez de hábitat. La presentación destaca los prometedores resultados de estas dos soluciones y demuestra cómo el puerto puede contribuir de manera considerable para proteger y mejorar la biodiversidad marina.
