Toronto: plans for the waterfront on schedule

Some of the major projects planned for Toronto’s vast waterfront are expected to make good progress in 2022. The “Port Lands Flood Protection” project is on schedule for completion in 2024. Meanwhile, Waterfront Toronto recently selected a consortium of developers and architects to implement the 4.9 hectare “Quay Side” development, a new resilient district that includes 800 homes.

The Port of Marseille keen to open up to the city

The desire for closer urban integration will be reflected in the building set to house the Port’s new headquarters. Its offices are currently based in a building that dates from the 1950s. The Port will also be able to rent officers in the new building, located in the heart of the Euroméditerranée development. A “Port Center” could also be created at the site. AIVP is supporting the Port in its initiative, and has interviewed the various stakeholders concerned to map out the future Port Center.

CastellĂłn de la Plana (Spain): dunes to protect the city of Almassora.

Dunes help to protect against wind and waves, and mitigate the imminent effects of climate change. Under an agreement signed on 22 February between the Provincial Department of Costas, Castellón port authority, and Almassora municipal council, a strip of dunes around 1 km long will be formed on Almassora’s beach. The operation will be carried out in the final quarter of 2022, and the chosen site will respect wildlife protection zones to guarantee their conservation.

The Port of Barcelona (Spain) set to invest 110 million euros in shore power by 2030.

The Port of Barcelona’s “Nexigen” project aims to decarbonise port activity and improve air quality using shore power. Some 90 million euros will be earmarked for shore power facilities at the Adosado and Prat docks, the ferry terminals at the Dársena de Sant Bertran and the Costa dock.  The remaining 20 million euros will be used to deploy the medium and high voltage power network in the port zone.  All of the energy supplied will come from renewable sources. The project should allow NOx and CO2 emissions from visiting vessels to be reduced by 38% by 2030.

The Port of Corpus Christi (USA) wants to make the Texas Gulf Coast a green fuels hub.

The port of Corpus Christi has signed a MoU with Apex Clean Energy, LLC and EPIC Midstream Holdings, LP to explore the development of a green hydrogen production, storage, transportation and export operation. The project would include a new pipeline and green fuels centre at the port. It would allow green hydrogen to be produced in volumes previously unseen in the United States, with the possibility of scaling up production even further by 2030.

CEMAS (Valencia): cooperating and sharing experiences toward ever more sustainable food

CEMAS, the World Sustainable Urban Food Centre in Valencia, opened in 2018. It is an initiative by the City of Valencia, which had signed a MoU with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) back in 2016. CEMAS’ main objectives are to highlight the numerous schemes aimed at promoting sustainable urban food supplies to cities around the world, raise awareness about food issues, climate change and sustainable local food systems, and spread best practices. Those priorities are in line with those identified by Commitment No. 7 of the AIVP 2030 Agenda for “Quality food for all”
