Port authorities in the neighbouring Polish port cities of Gdansk and Gdynia have been taking a range of measures in the fight against air pollution. This has included installing an effective air quality monitoring system to help aid policy makers in tackling the problem of air pollution in the area.
In 2017, the Gdansk port participated in the Space3ac acceleration programme, with the goal of ‘Designing and implementing a sensor/ detector system for the measurement of noise dust and odor emissions in critical points of the Port’.
A small group of friends established a startup called SeaData in November 2017. SeaData, together with another rival startup Feature Forest, took part in the Space3ac acceleration programme. With SeaData, the company installed a network of monitoring system and devices throughout the Port of Gdansk.
