Valenciaport proceeds with eco-friendly project

The Port Authority of Valencia (PAV) has put out to tender the supply, installation and configuration of environmental control equipment within the framework of the GREEN C PORTS Project with a budget amounting to €332,700 (US$376,700).

The GREEN C PORTS project, which is coordinated by the Valenciaport Foundation, aims to achieve through digitalisation an increase in the efficiency of port operations, the promotion of the environmental sustainability of the port and the environmental performance of operations, an increase in the connectivity of ports with the city and a reduction in the impact of port operations on the city, as well as the improvement of information systems and their interoperability, including maritime traffic management systems.

The initiative is co-financed by the European Union through the Connecting Europe Facility programme and which, in addition to Valencia, is also being developed in the ports of Venice, Piraeus, Bremerhaven and Wilhemshaven.

In order to achieve the programme’s objectives, the PAV, through GREEN C PORTS, will extend the existing network of environmental and meteorological sensors, deploy a port environmental platform and model artificial intelligence algorithms to inform internal users, port clients and the residents of the municipalities about different key environmental parameters of air quality and noise derived from port activities.

This initiative is part of the PAV’s strategic plan to boost sustainable development and reduce emissions from ports and ships through innovative solutions.
