In Valparaíso, the port extension project adapts to citizens’ proposals

The project to extend the port of Valparaíso (Chile) was at the heart of the development program set out in the Valparaíso Agreement of October 2023. This multiparty document provided for public consultation throughout the development process. The project that has finally been submitted to the environmental authority takes into account the changes suggested during this dialogue. The extension of the jetty has been limited to 430 meters instead of the planned 785 meters. At the same time, the project now includes a coastal promenade, which is intended to become an accessible public space, creating a link between residents and the port.

Universal Exhibition: a tribute to port and maritime activity

For the World Expo 2025, to be held from April to October on the artificial island of Yumeshima in Osaka Bay (Japan), several countries will be erecting pavilions based on port and maritime themes. Indeed, Lebanese architect Lina Ghotmeh, in charge of Bahrain’s pavilion, has chosen to highlight the country’s port and maritime heritage. The shape of the work is reminiscent of Bahraini ships, typical of the transport of heavy goods to East Africa and East Arabia. The Dutch pavilion, designed by RAU Architects, will emphasize the role of water in the global energy transition.

France: new initiatives to keep port dock basins clean

Since 2011, the Gestes Propres association’s “Je navigue, je trie” (I sail, I sort) program has been encouraging recreational boaters to bring their rubbish back to the port so that it can be sorted. As well as raising awareness, participating ports are encouraged to set up effective waste management systems. This year, with some twenty new ports involved, including Saint-Malo (France), the initiative is taking on a new and bigger dimension. Another project also aims to combat water pollution in the port of Saint-Malo: a submersible careening ramp that filters wastewater from boat maintenance. The installation prevents pollution from entering the harbor’s water and therefore protects the ecosystems.

AltaSea and Port of LA explore wave energy

AltaSea and the Port of Los Angeles (USA) have signed a MoU with CalWave, a wave energy technology manufacturer, to jointly establish a local wave energy industry and build projects off the coast of California. This project is in line with the requirements set forth by the California Energy Commission which asks to evaluate the feasibility and identify sea space for offshore wave and tidal energy projects. The project would continue to make the Port of Los Angeles a critical player in the construction and operation phases of offshore energy production. AltaSea sees the project as a good method of creating a new local industry and is looking forward to sharing its technology and knowledge globally.

Vancouver: a food market in containers opens its doors

The Junction Public Market food market will open its doors to all on June 28. Located next to the Port of Vancouver (Canada), it’s just a stone’s throw from the cruise terminal and close enough to the container terminal for market customers to be able to contemplate their unloading while they eat. To further integrate this new place of activity into the neighbourhood, the various stalls are built from customized old containers. On weekends, the market will be animated by concerts, which will take place on an old container transformed into a removable stage.
