Towards a green and sustainable ecosystem for the EU Port of the Future


Description of Port Virtual Twin Concept

D6.1 A concept for establishing the digital twin approach for port environments based on the PortForward approach of using interoperable IoT applications and services as the basis for the continuous and consequent collection, processing and use of data for port planning, managing and operation processes; [T6.1].

Cloud Platform integration concept and guidelines

D3.1 Common, standard-based remote management and control solutions will be investigated for the targeted Port-Forward IoT devices; [T3.1].

Report on sustainability assessment

D53 The sustainability assessment will be held under a life cycle approach based on Life Cycle Assessment LCA Social LCA SLCA and Life Cycle Costing LCC methodologies The assessment allows the definition of the baseline scenarios to be compared later versus the improved operational performance of such ports once the new solutions are implemented at portsT51

Use cases analysis

D1.2 Use cases analysis will be elaborated at each of the ports participating in the project with the aim to identify constrains from current management strategies, processes, and legacy systems that shall be addressed by the PortFor-ward ecosystem in order to achieve a successful validation; [T1.2]

D105 Report document describing the achieved progress from the 25th till the 36th month reporting periodT102

Interim (6-monthly) Progress report

D10.2 Report document describing the achieved progress for the first 6 month reporting period; [T10.2].

Report on environmental indicators

D54 Determination of the specific environmental impact indicators eg Carbon footprint that could be integrated into the virtual platform in order to facilitate the ports to calculate their own impacts in terms of indicative values This will allow to incorporate environmental aspects on the decision making process along with the technical and quality requirementsT54

PortForward Dashboard report

D65 The PortForward Dashboard PFD is one of the main tools of Decision Support System This multidimensional instrument allows a proactive managing of port operations through the definition of specific indicators for the monitoring of port performances in different aspects such as Logistics and Port Operations Socioeconomic Impact Environmental management etc The report will demonstrate the realization of the tool with respect to requirements such as interoperability meaning the cooperation among different tools through standardization methods integration meaning the ability of the dashboard to share information with other existing platforms scalability meaning the possibility to add in the future additional features and capabilitiesT64

Data Management Plan (DMP) V1

D9.5 The plan will describe ways to manage all research data, and metadata, during and after the project duration; open data sets, means to access, license attached, updating, etc.; [T9.5].

1st Year Progress report

D10.3 Report document describing the achieved progress for the first 12 month reporting period; [T10.2].

Harmonized user needs and goals

D1.1 Harmonized user needs and goals - The expectations, needs and strategic business objectives of the PortForward ecosystem end-users will be summorized and analyzed; [T1.1]

2nd Year Progress report

D10.4 Report document describing the achieved progress from the 13th till the 24th month reporting period; [T10.2].

Remote Assistance tool integrated into IoT/CPS platform

D42 An ARRemote Assistance tool integrated into the digital twin CPS and IoT infrastructure will allow the identification of and communication with the correct stakeholders for every part of the critical infrastructure as well as the unambiguous identification of the entity in the real environment and the within its digital representationT42

Acceptance test report and test case document

D66 Report on several testing activities of the PortForward Dashboardplatform by endusers such as port managers and port operatorsT65
