Last Edition Challenges

To provide a valuable solution to improve the performance and sustainability of the Port of Valencia, the challenges faced by the applicants in the III Valenciaport Hackathon were:


Presented by APV is focused on optimizing renewable energy generation, distribution and management for the decarbonization of the port


The Port Authority of València (APV) seeks to explore new ways to optimize the management of renewable energy and its distribution in the port area. The aim is to maximize the use of clean energy sources, such as solar, wind and other renewable energy sources, and to ensure an efficient distribution of the energy generated.

The main objectives of this challenge posed by the APV are focused on seeking innovative ideas, suitable for the port environment, that will allow it to:

  • Incorporate renewable energy production for use in non-conventional applications.
  • Find the most suitable options for energy storage.
  • Define how should be the tools or platforms or management systems of the different energy sources (at least wind, photovoltaic, storage, etc.) its measurement, distribution, storage and economic, social and environmental impact.

Romeu is looking for container optimization and last minute pricing

Romeu is looking for a solution to optimize the use of containers on regular lines, detecting empty spaces in advance and offering them to potentially interested customers in each case, at the optimal price in order to complete the loading of containers, increasing the profitability of transport and ensuring a more responsible use that reduces the environmental impact of transport.

For this and other objectives, the company is committed to data-driven innovation, making decisions and taking actions based on information.

Therefore, participants will have access to data from:


  • Operations of the last 5 years.
  • Quotations and self-quotations
  • Web actions

Naturgy seeks to innovative solutions for small-scale biomethane liquefaction in port environments

Naturgy seeks to improve small-scale liquefaction of biomethane produced from near-port resources such as rice paddies. To address this challenge, an efficient and cost-effective process needs to be developed to convert biomethane to liquid form, facilitating its storage, transport and use in a variety of applications.

In the context of the port and nearby resources, this means looking for a solution that is suitable for local production of biomethane in relatively small quantities, such as those generated by rice fields near the port.

Therefore, participants will have access to data on:

  • Current demand and trend for LNG as a marine fuel.
  • Regulatory environment for decarbonization in the marine sector.
  • Environmental benefits of replacing current LNG with BioLNG.
  • Data on biomethane production. Current and potential.
  • Data on the different origins for biogas production.
  • Technology for enrichment to biomethane.
  • Technical data on liquefaction.
  • Port infrastructure data.
  • Economic and market data.
  • Environmental and sustainability data.
