Valenciaport is putting out to tender the service that guarantees the optimum state of the cabins that measure the quality of the air and other environmental parameters in the installations and in the areas close to the Valencian ports for an amount of €292,578 (around US$320,000).

In total, the Valencian ports have three air quality control booths. The Port of València has two of these environmental control installations – one on the esplanade of the old Turia riverbed and the other on the ‘Transversales de Poniente dock’ – which analyse in real time the quality of the air, the noise in the port installations and the meteorological conditions with the aim of finding out the data on emissions from port activity and to continue with the continuous improvement in environmental matters.

Additionally, through this monitoring, the port can improve the planning of port operations if necessary to control emissions.

The port of Sagunto has a third installation with the same characteristics.

These cabins are equipped with the latest technology for monitoring atmospheric pollutants: they have five gas analysers for the concentration of sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NO2/NO/NOx), ozone (O3), carbon monoxide (CO) and PM10 and PM2.5 particles.

They are also equipped with a weather station for measuring wind speed and direction, rainfall, solar radiation, temperature, relative humidity and barometric pressure. Also, they are equipped with sound level meters to measure the noise levels in the harbour.

Additionally, the two facilities of the port of València are part of the GREEN C PORTS project coordinated by the Valenciaport Foundation and co-financed by the European Union.

According to the data published in the PAV’s Environmental Report, the two control cabins installed in the Port of Valencia (both connected to the Generalitat Valenciana’s Monitoring Network) indicate compliance with the regulatory values for air quality throughout the year 2022.
