Launched in Hamburg last autumn, the aim of the Smooth Ports project is to reduce CO2 emissions from road traffic at ports, by employing alternative fuels and digital technology.
Nantes - Saint Nazaire Port and its partners, Hamburg, Livorno, Varna and Monfalcone-Trieste, reported on their first findings and worked on a common methodology to assess such emissions. Host port Livorno, Italy’s leading port facility for ro-ro and ro-pax operations, presented its actions on the ground, which are undertaken with the active participation of its stakeholders. The challenge is notably to limit the road traffic volumes resulting from regulatory checks by utilizing facilities such as Montoir’s one-stop facility for regulatory requirements, which was commissioned in October 2019.
Nantes − Saint Nazaire Port is incorporating the Smooth Ports project in its industrial ecology initiative. The Port Authority will be presenting the project at the "Industrial Ecology" workshop, which will be held at Montoir de Bretagne on 10th March
