|CONNECT VALENCIAPORT – IMPROVEMENT OF THE HINTERLAND RAIL CONNECTION AND THE MARITIME ACCESIBILITY TO THE PORT OF VALENCIA (CONNECTING EUROPE FACILITY – CEF Programme, January 2014 – December 2023)
The CONNECT Valenciaport project is part of the global and ambitious goal to improve the Port of Valencia’s accessibility by sea and land.
In particular, the project is about improving the railway infrastructure, including inspections and construction works. It also addresses the most urgent problems affecting the Port of Valencia’s railway infrastructure. It aims to address the lack of interoperability of the port’s railway infrastructure with the Mediterranean Corridor.
|CONNECTING SAGUNTO – IMPROVEMENT OF RAIL CONNECTIVITY, SAFETY AND SECURITY OF THE PORT OF SAGUNTO (European Commission, CEF Programme – Connecting Europe Facility, April 2019 – December 2024)
Its main objective is to improve the port’s competitiveness with the Inland Railway Network construction for the Port of Sagunto, specifically the South dock (docks Centro2 and Sur2). Both inter-modal areas will be capable of receiving 750m cargo trains and will have tracks with a mixed gauge (Iberian and international). The construction of the Border Inspection Centre at the Port of Sagunto is also included as part of the programme. This will allow goods imported into the European Union to be inspected. The installation of a new network of security cameras in the Port of Sagunto also aims guarantee the security of people, infrastructures, mediums of transport and equipment.
GREEN C PORTS – GREEN AND CONNECTED PORTS (CEF Programme, April 2019 – December 2023)
|This project will address six business cases consisting of prototypes and pilot tests that will be implemented in different European ports and will serve as a basis for testing innovative technologies such as IoT, big data or predictive analytics through artificial intelligence models.
|H2PORTS – IMPLEMENTING FUEL CELLS AND HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGIES IN PORTS (European Commission – H2020-JTI-FCH, Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking, January 2019 – December 2024)
|The aim is to provide efficient solutions to permit an efficient transition from a fossil fuel-based industry to a low-carbon and zero-emissions sector. The H2Ports project aims to conduct feasibility studies to establish a sustainable hydrogen supply chain within the port while coordinating all involved actors including customers, hydrogen producers, and suppliers.
EALING – EUROPEAN FLAGSHIP ACTION FOR COLD IRONING IN PORT (European Commission, CEF Programme – Connecting Europe Facility, June 2020 – December 2023)
The Global EALING Project is about accelerating the effective deployment of OPS solutions in EU maritime ports. Its aims are: To operational and environmental performances of the ports participating in EALING consortium in charging different ships (ro-ro, ro-pax, container ships, ferries); to contribute to the further development of an EU harmonised and interoperable framework for deployment of OPS infrastructure in line with the EU technical, legal and regulatory framework; and to conduct all the necessary technical, environmental, socioeconomic and financial studies to accelerate the works phase on OPS infrastructure.
|EALINGWorks Valenciaport – PREPARATION OF THE ELECTRICAL GRID OF THE PORT OF VALENCIA FOR ONSHORE POWER SUPPLY (CONNECTING EUROPE FACILITY – CEF, April 2020 – December 2024)
The EALINGWorks Valenciaport Action in framed within this European initiative, with the objective of preparing the port’s electrical grid for the OPS to container ships, ferries and cruise liners in the Port of Valencia’s new terminals, including a new container terminal and new passenger terminal. To achieve this objective, the project will construct a novel electricity substation (GIS – Gas-Insulated Switchgear) with a starting capacity of 60MW (which can be expanded to 90MW in the future). The Action includes construction work to install a new underground electricity line that will connect the substation to the general grid.
|I RAIL – INTEROPERABILITY OF THE RAIL SYSTEM WITH TAF TSI IN TEN-T CORRIDORS (European Commission, CEF Programme – Connecting Europe Facility, January 2019 – December 2023)
|The project mainly aims to improve interoperability and information exchange in European services for rail freight transport through the digitalisation and use of TAF TSI standards (Technical Specifications for Interoperability applied for Telematics Applications for Freight), as outlined in the Interoperability Directive 797/EC/2016.
