Bordeaux (France): aquaculture farm created

The Port of Bordeaux and the company Pure Salmon France have signed an agreement to create an aquaculture farm at the Verdon terminal. 

The farm will cover 15 hectares and should generate more than 250 direct jobs. Work is expected to begin early in 2023, and represents an investment of around €275 million. Salmon, “born, raised, and transformed in France”, should be on sale by 2026. A solar farm planned on neighbouring land could supply the site with renewable power. 

The Port of Bordeaux will contribute at the forum “Blue Ports Initiative, in cooperation with the FAO”, at the AIVP’s World Conference Ports & Cities in Tangier in May.

Singapore: the port authority (MPA), trade unions and shipping lines invest in human capital

Training for port workers and seafarers is central to the tripartite agreement signed during Singapore Maritime Week 2022. Under the aegis of the transport ministry, three initial and continuous training programmes have been launched. First is the Maritime Transformation and Innovation Programme, aimed at senior officers. Also announced were plans to strengthen the “tripartite fund”, which has already funded higher education for 200 young sailors. Finally, the theme of top management was addressed with a maritime leadership program for future industry leaders. This partnership with the Singapore School of Management has been renewed for the second time.

“Waterfront 2.0”: ideas competition for a resilient waterfront

Living and working by the water now means tackling climate change and rising sea levels by 2050. This international ideas competition aims to collect innovative solutions to address these issues around the world. They will need to integrate with the existing waterfront and urban environment. AIVP members will no doubt want to keep a close eye on the competition and its results. Deadline for submissions: 30 June; Results: 20 July 2022.

Blue Fishing Ports and Marine Spatial Planning

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) published a roadmap document with findings on how to engage blue fishing ports in marine spatial planning (MSP). MSP is an approach that aims to promote synergies and maximize sustainable processes. The fishery sector is often crucial to the local economy but may face conflicts due to space sharing issues. MSP can facilitate these interactions and the implementation of holistic blue economy strategies.

One of the authors, José Estors, will be moderating the session “Sustainable Food Systems – The Blue Ports Initiative” to discuss this topic in more detail during the AIVP’s World Conference in Tangier in May.

An ever more attractive waterfront for Istanbul

Istanbul Modern, the contemporary art museum designed by Renzo Piano, is set to open to the public soon. It will be a major new component of the Galataport project, which aims to make Istanbul a major tourist destination. Various developments are planned over an almost 1.2 km stretch of waterfront, to enhance the area’s appeal and create a cultural hub. At the same site, the cruise terminal is set to adopt an unprecedented solution – going underground, to free up space for a promenade on the surface. We previously provided details of this unique city-port integration solution in our good practices database.

The theme of the 17th World Conference : Inspiring Blue Futures

With the concept of “Inspiring Blue Futures”, AIVP wants to highlight the importance of port cities in this mission and several subjects for the future of our societies, our economy and our environment. In our conference we will see how these Blue Futures will be characterized by innovative solutions for decarbonized logistic chains and port cities, building on alternative fuels and electrification of infrastructure, marine renewable energies, digitalization, or even carbon capture based on aquatic nature (the best carbon sinks are wetlands and the seabed).
