Smart Marinas as a role model towards Smart cities

We were very honored to collaborate with Monaco Marina Management, organizer of the Smart & Sustainable Marina Monaco . This action was dedicated to bringing together key players, investors, developers, manufacturers and innovators to promote the development of environmentally friendly, efficient, attractive and user friendly marinas that are also lively places where people want to be.

Supported by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the event was hosted by Yacht Club de Monaco, a platform to promote and communicate initiatives in favor of an approach to yachting that fully respects the environment, both at sea and ashore.


Monaco Smart and Sustainable Marina’s aims to showcase innovative start-ups, marinas, and architects, providing an exchange platform for creating sustainable and smarter marinas. With 75% of the world’s population projected to live in coastal regions by 2035, and the yachting sector rapidly expanding, this event is crucial in finding solutions that positively impact our planet.

The Smart and Sustainable Yachting and Marinas represent a multi-billion investment market driven by high eco consciousness and for which many innovations and circularity are expected including in biodiversity regeneration, energy production ans optimization, waterfront construction, marina management, water management and waste management.

Build this powerful ecosystem allows us to connect with key stakeholders who possess remarkable spirit, energy, and resources to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. As the players in the Smart Marina and Sustainable Ecosystem embrace their leadership roles with greater awareness, we are honored to be part of this dynamic community of changemakers, and are looking forward to welcome new innovators to drive change.

Strenghtening our positive impact on coastal areas

In the continuation of our commitment to advancing innovation in marinas, the second edition was held in 2022. It took us further into the realm of cutting-edge solutions, featuring the addition of two new competitions: one spotlighting Sustainable Marinas, celebrating eco-conscious endeavors, and another dedicated to Architecture and Design, recognizing the role of ecodesign in shaping our littorals.

We are pleased to report that an increasing number of marinas are adopting these innovations, such as IADYS partnering with award-winning Flisvos Marina or MB92 implementing Ocean Ecostructure’s solution in their Barcelona refit yard. This growing participation underscores the industry’s collective commitment to fostering smart, sustainable, and architecturally remarkable marinas. The recent edition was a showcase of progressive ideas, reinforcing our dedication to shaping a future where innovation seamlessly blends with the maritime environment.

Monaco Smart & Sustainable Marina: An Innovative Micro-City

In Smart & Sustainable Marina, Blumorpho really highlighted the facts that marinas and ports were like a micro-city, with a high capacity to innovate and show the way in Climate Change adaptation.

At BLUMORPHO, we work daily to join the dots between private investors, industrial players and the breakthrough innovators. Regarding this Smart Marina Innovation initiative we handled the ecosystem design that we structured around 8 categories: Energy Optimization, Mobility, Equipment, Security, Water Optimization, Biodiversity, Health and Waste Management. We led the innovation call, the recruitment of an international jury and finaly coordinated the final Consensus Meeting.


Start-ups rewarded

Of the hundred-plus applications, only 55 companies from 30 countries were shortlisted for the Monaco Smart & Sustainable Marine Awards. Credit Suisse, Bombardier, and other industry leaders participated in 160 online interviews organized by Blumorpho over three weeks. After a Consensus Meeting, 3 companies in different categories were awarded.

José Marco Casellini hosted the ceremony, congratulating winners like Isabelle Gerente of Greencity Organisation (Waste Management), Catherine de Roincé of Terroïko (Biodiversity), Stéphane Paul, CEO of H2X-Ecosystems (Energy). They expressed their pride in the achievement. They were also applauded by Bertrand Piccard, supporting Monaco’s pioneering spirit.

In addition, Hospithome, Humint Consulting, Seaflex and Cyrias have received a “Coup de Coeur” Prize from the jury.


Our startup designs solutions for monitoring and protecting the sea. Our patented solution captures waste before it reaches the sea, and targets rainwater drain outlets, especially those in ports and marinas before waste spills into the sea.




H2X-ECOSYSTEMS develops ecosystems in industrial areas and territories, by manufacturing solutions to produce, to distribute, and to consume renewable H2, and by installing mobility solutions via hybrid solar/hydrogen vehicles.
