Master Plan for Seville’s new Urban-Port District unveiled

The Port of Seville (Spain) has presented its Master Plan to transform 40 ha of land situated between the Delicias and Centenary bridges into a habitable and connected port-city district. More than half of the area will be dedicated to open spaces organized around the Port park, including the Greenway and Green bridge. To promote the port identity of the area, a maritime river promenade will connect to the Tablada Wharf, where cruise ships dock. The new cruise terminal will also house the Port Center, which will help connect the citizens, the port, and the city. These endeavours along with several others elaborated in the Master Plan will be launched in 2024.

The Port of Quebec presents its Vision 2035

The Port of Quebec (Canada) has disclosed its Vision 2035, which aims at becoming a sustainable port, serving the economic interests of the City region and developing maritime commerce whilst respecting the community and environment. The strategy is developed around four pillars: community engagement, energy transition and climate change mitigation, innovation, and developing a good work environment. To achieve these objectives, the port of Quebec has started identifying specific actions, such as: establishing an advisory committee comprised of the CEO (AIVP’s VP, Mr. Mario Girard) and representatives of the Y-Z generation, developing a 2024-2028 sustainable development plan, collaborating with the Saint Lawrence Corridor initiative, and more.

In Paris, HAROPA Port is working with Ikea for deliveries by river

The Swedish flat-pack giant is expanding its home delivery service, and has identified combined river-road shipping as a way of decarbonising its last-mile logistics. In association with HAROPA Port, a terminal has been set up at the port of Bercy to receive packages via the Seine, which are then loaded onto electric vehicles for delivery to their final destination. Electric charging stations have been installed at the port terminal, to allow the delivery trucks to recharge while waiting for the barges to arrive. The arrangement is partly funded by the VNF and the Ile de France Region.

An offshore wind pre-assembly terminal in Long Beach

Mustering parts, assembly and pre-assembly, lifting, floating, pre-shipping: all essential steps in the offshore wind turbine construction process. But all of that requires a large amount of space, and experience of heavy logistics. That’s why the port of Long Beach (USA) is planning to set aside a 1.5 km² zone dedicated to offshore wind logistics and assembly. The complex will play its part in achieving the target of 25 GW of installed offshore wind capacity for California. It follows other projects in the State, including in Humboldt Bay.

Mombasa: solar shore power

The National Port Authority has earmarked two brownfield port sites in Mombasa (Kenya) to host a shore power system. Solar panels will provide 100% of the electricity supplied to docked vessels. A feasibility study was carried out in preparation for the project. Its findings are unanimous: nearly 25% of the Kenyan maritime sector’s greenhouse gas emissions are generated by vessels stationary at the port. Urgent action is therefore needed, with the installation of a 5 to 10 MW solar plant to supply shore power.
