Valenciaport and the Port of Hamburg strengthen relations


Officials from the Port Authority of Valencia (PAV) and the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) have held a meeting in Valencia as they aim to collaborate in areas such as decarbonisation, digitalisation, connectivity, and equality policies.

The meeting saw the President of the PAV, Aurelio Martínez meet with the President of the HPA and Vice-President of the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH), Jens Meier.

Both ports showed a mutual commitment to work together on challenges facing the maritime transport and the logistics sector.

One shared objective between both parties is to carry out initiatives aimed at positioning their respective ports as benchmarks in sustainability and digitisation, advancing in the 2030 commitments of the European agenda.

The meeting also allowed the two to analyse the work being carried out through the IAPH in areas both ports are actively involved with such as energy, resilience of data or the progress of the World Ports Climate Action Program.

One way the PAV has set out to decarbonise its port operations is through building a new electrical substation. Initially announced in August 2021, the port authority has already begun the process for execution of the station with a budget of €2.8 million ($3.32 million). Construction is set to complete by August 2023.
