Welcome to the BlueTechPort Sant Bertran Innovation Hub, a center dedicated to fostering innovation in all sectors related to the Blue Economy.

Set against the backdrop of the Mediterranean and mere minutes from the city center, this unique hub resides in the first of six warehouses of the historic Barcelona port storage facilities. By 2027, it will expand to the rest of the warehouses and it will span over 25,000 square meters — a dynamic environment where large companies, startups, and emerging sectors can come together to shake up the Blue Economy landscape.


BlueTechPort offers a choice between two iconic areas. Select your preferred space and join an ecosystem striving to become the epicenter of maritime innovation.

Sant Bertran

At Nau 1, the inaugural warehouse within the upcoming Sant Bertran hub, +1000 m² are allocated for corporates and +200 m² for startups, all dedicated to spearheading innovation in the Blue Economy. By 2027, this site will be one of six warehouses dedicated to harnessing the opportunities provided by the Port of Barcelona, conveniently located just a swift 3-minute scooter ride from the bustling heart of the city.

Ideate, create and innovate with us while gazing towards the boundless possibilities of the sea.



More than a coworking workspace, this dynamic hub at TechBarcelona-Pier 01 was named one of the top five innovation centers globally by Forbes magazine in 2017.

As the birthplace of BlueTechPort, Pier01 is more than a place: it is an integral part of the Port of Barcelona ecosystems. Together we seek to promote Barcelona's technological brand internationally, attract investment and talent, both local and foreign, and collaborate with other organizations to accelerate the technological ecosystem.
