Marsa Maroc supported the second edition of the Hackathon “Smart Port Challenge 2022”, organized during the month of September by ANP and PortNet in partnership with the Global Facilitation Alliance.

This competition, which ended on Tuesday, September 27, 2022, attracted more than 150 participants from around the world. Placed under the theme “Smart Port Innovation”, the competition was open to university researchers, companies, and startups to provide relevant and innovative responses to the 4 challenges identified, namely sustainable development, performance, logistical fluidity, and trade facilitation.

This year, 46 teams presented projects that met the challenges of this 100% online competition during the final phase of the competition. The Smart Port Challenge 2022 ended with the announcement of four winning teams:

  • Siliconesignale Technologies proposed the Iport Smart Yards solution which allows predictive models to be run on the availability of the docks and consequently proposes, to the approaching ships, the adjustment of their speed and therefore a reduction of their energy bill as well as their wait time in the harbor
  • The architect-designer Mr. Abdessamad ELAICHATI proposed the PORT-LAB system solution which consists of a mobile laboratory in the form of a container equipped with the latest technologies for pollution inspection in ports
  • The Siliconesignale Technologies team proposed “iPort: Integrated monitoring and planning of port resources”, a complete digital solution for the monitoring and planning of port resources to optimize traffic in order to reduce truck traffic congestion at the port of Casablanca
  • The Wabtech team proposed the Cargo Dwell & Optimization solution, a web-based solution that is based on Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics to improve the processing of containerized imports and exports in order to reduce the uncertainty of stay time, improve prediction, synchronization between administrative procedures and port logistics, and traceability of operations
