In this regard, the development of the Port of Sagunto’s inner rail network is anticipated to cost €17.5 million ($22 million) with an 11-month completion date, and involves the design of an intermodal goods facility with one beach for containers and another for automobiles.

This project is part of the PAV’s rail traffic strategy, which comprises expenditures totalling more than €240 million ($304 million), and is linked to the objective to decarbonise port activities and combat climate change.

Promoting train utilisation in freight traffic is critical to Valenciaport’s objective of being an emission-neutral precinct by 2030, emphasising the need of taking the required steps to improve rail accessibility.

In July 2023, PAV declared its intention to link to solar energy by the end of this year, with the goal of becoming an emission-free port by 2030.

More recently, PAV issued a tender for the service that ensures the optimal state of the cabins that monitor the quality of air and other environmental parameters.
