Wind and Ports

The Wind and Ports project is part of the "Cooperazione transfrontaliera Italia-Francia Marittimo 2007 – 2013” programme involving the regions of Liguria, Tuscany, Sardinia and Corsica). The project aims at studying winds in port for the development of software (by Genoa University) that will return statistically based short (one hour) to medium term (12-24 hour) forecasts of the wind in the five partner ports of Genoa, Savona, La Spezia, Livorno and Bastia. The forecasts are available in graphic computer format in real time.
The Livorno Port Authority contributed to the project by supplying five latest generation anemometric stations that are connected to the central server at Genoa University for the analysis of data. The information will help improve safety for personnel, vehicles and structures in all port operations areas on land and at sea, especially in areas exposed to strong winds that are a considerable risk to workers, the stability of structures and vehicles, goods being stocked and vessels about to undertake mooring manoeuvres.
The project concluded in June 2012 with a closing conference that was held in Genoa.
