Athens, Greece (PortSEurope) June 11, 2018 – Genoa-based Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mar Tirreno Settentrionale (AdSP – North Tyrrhenian Sea Port Authority) has participated in the 50th edition of the Posidonia International Shipping Exhibition, a biennial dedicated to shipping and logistics. The AdSP took advantage of this unique opportunity to present to international industry leaders, the attributes of the port.
In a session dedicated to the safety of ships and critical infrastructures, in partnership with the ports of Piraeus, Koper, Valencia and industrial subjects of international level, the AdSP presented its experience with the MONICA (Monitoring and Control Application) platform and work planned in the coming months, which will involve the major operators of the port of Livorno. These planned activities will also be the subject of candidacies on European programs such as the CEF, which, have as their fundamental axis the digitisation, rather than the infrastructural interventions as in the past.
Participants highlighted the need for an innovative approach to security that, leveraging the integration of available technologies, which allow various subjects and authorities involved in security, to fully share and in real-time all critical information.
The final day of Posidonia 2018 was dedicated to the issue of decarbonisation and sustainability of maritime transport and port activities, through alternative fuels (LNG and hydrogen) which, in the logic of the green economy, are capable of opening important growth potentials. The AdSP has already scheduled meetings with shipowners’ associations of the Mediterranean area and with shipbuilding industries, to build a strong partnership that, by analogy with what is being accessed in the Baltic Sea, promotes the inclusion of initiatives for decarbonisation and sustainability between the sector priorities of the next European Union tenders, fully recognizing the specificities, the problems but also the extraordinary opportunities of the Mediterranean.
