Novarium, Port of Quebec form strategic partnership

Novarium, the innovation campus dedicated to the blue economy, has announced a strategic partnership with the Port of Quebec. 

This collaboration aims to create a dynamic ecosystem promoting innovation, research, and sustainable development in the maritime sector, while leveraging the advantages offered by the location of the Port of Quebec.

The Port of Quebec has stated its commitment to providing businesses with important infrastructures specialising in liquid and solid bulk in Canada. 

According to the port, this partnership fits perfectly with Quebec’s ambition to play a leading role in the transition to a more sustainable and responsible economy. 

It will allow businesses to address the complex challenges facing the Port of Quebec and contribute to its growth, while opening its spaces as a testing ground for startups wishing to innovate in the blue economy, the port reported.

“This collaboration with Novarium is another step in our rapprochement with Quebec’s innovation ecosystem, following collaborations with other Quebec organisations,” said Mario Girard, CEO of the Port of Quebec. 

“We are delighted to work with key players in Quebec to stimulate innovation, attract world-class talent and companies, and contribute to the sustainable growth of the blue economy in the Quebec region,” Girard added.

Amélie Desrochers, Executive Director, Novarium, further stated: “Collaborating with the Port of Quebec is an excellent opportunity to develop a Quebec showcase of new technologies in the blue economy, which will be a sector of the future in the global economy. 

“Quebec City is thus part of our strategy of creating home ports for the development of innovative companies all over the world, as we have started in Los Angeles and Portugal,” Desrochers continued.

Late last year, the Port Authority of Québec revealed plans for a feasibility study on cruise ship shore power at the Québec City International Cruise Forum.

More recently, the Ports of Montreal, Québec, and Trois-Rivières announced their participation in the federal government’s Net-Zero Challenge.
