Wilhelmshaven (Germany): carbon capture and storage added to the green development project

The move could see Germany’s largest liquid bulk terminal become a hub for CO2 capture and storage. Following the announcement of plans for an LNG terminal and the creation of an ‘ammonia roadmap’, the port of Wilhelmshaven is forging ahead with its alternative energy-focused policy. By 2028, over 10 million tonnes of CO2 could be exported to offshore wells located off the coast of Denmark and Norway. The site enjoys an advantageous location on the North Sea coastline. It is also close to the port city of Bremerhaven, with Bremen further up the river Weser.

Port of Seattle is planning for quiet underwater

The Port of Seattle (United States) is situated in the Central Puget Sound, home to various threatened and endangered species, including killer whales. Underwater noise threatens this species’ ability to feed, communicate, and navigate. The Underwater Noise Mitigation and Management Plan aims at minimizing underwater noise created by Port operations, such as in-water construction and vessel operations. It focuses on how the Port can leverage its influence to reduce the noise levels through leadership, investment, advocacy, and collaboration. These steps may also help the Port achieve further Green Marine certification levels in the future.

Second ‘Hackathon’ at the Port of Nantes-Saint-Nazaire (France)

New digital solutions were discovered in Saint-Nazaire in 2019, during the first edition of an innovation competition. Some mobile apps were subsidised, including “A bon port” which helps to smooth traffic in the port district, or “Du côté du port”, a route planning app that guides citizens visiting the installations. The second Hackathon will take place from 22 to 24 November 2022. This year’s edition will be held on the île de Nantes, a place that symbolises the regeneration of the port-city interface. Each start-up will have 48 hours to develop a product and present it to a jury.
