Inter-relations between industries at the port cities of Le Havre and Rouen, using the “industrial network” tool

Thème : Enterprise-driver Smart Port | Ville(s) analysée(s) : Rouen, Le Havre
The port-industrial models of the 20th century have experienced some brutal paradigm shifts. In just a few years we have passed from the "waterside factory" model, the Port-Industrial Zone, to a more complex model involving "port-logistical corridors with interpenetration of industrial functions, R&D, services, quality of life, port performance and logistical connectivity" (Y. ALIX, T. WILLEMSEN). In this context, the Port-Industrial Zone (PIZ) is obliged to re-invent itself, in a climate of innovation, as a new model of port attraction and productive territory.
Proposed by AURH (Town Planning Agency of Le Havre and Seine Estuary area), the “industrial network” constructed on the Seine River Estuary aims to provide a dynamic representation of the inter-relations between the industries of the various port territories. The tool has been designed for the use of decision-makers and players in the territory, such as ports, businessses and organisations, and will provide:
- A territorial representation of the principal relations and interchange between industries (interchange of goods, logistical services, contractor/contractee relationship),
- A current state of the local network connecting businesses with ports and international markets,
- An understanding and an overview of the industrial ecosystem of the Seine River Estuary, its functioning and its weaknesses or dysfunctional aspects.
This approach is innovative because it understands the territory through its economic dynamics, qualified by its flows of energy, waste, logistics, information, etc., and because it is based on a Geographical Information System which allows a living representation of the economic tissue. This tool will enable territories which make use of it to deal with the broken models and economic challenges of the 21st century: energy transition, the culture of reversibility, functional economy, logistical integration, competitive new social-environmental models for value creation, etc.
