The top Spanish container port is engaged in several projects to cut down CO2 emissions. Cristina Rodriguez Cruz, head of commercial clients at the Port of Valencia, explained that the aim of several current projects is to reduce emissions to zero by 2030. One initiative involves pioneering the use of hydrogen in port operations, installing solar-powered generators in Valencia and Gandia, and developing railway connections to remove containers from the roads by investing in reefer connections and intermodal services to Madrid and Zaragoza. But the star project is the new North Terminal, which will have a capacity of 5 million TEUs (approx). The terminal will be completed in 2027 and will be 100% electrical.
