Background & Policy context

This Action was part of a Global Project aiming at the promotion of sustainable shipping by developing and establishing an LNG bunkering network in the Baltic Sea and corresponding European regions.

Objectives

Promote LNG maritime fuel throught investment in LNG infrastructure & mobile equipment

Methodology

One LNG containers, one mobile LNG/CNG filling station and a mobile LNG pumping station was purchased and deployed to serve the range of customers in Estonia. This enabled the bunkering of cargo vessels and ferries in the ports of Tallinn, Pärnu and their satellite ports, as well as the provision of CNG for urban transportation

Funding

Specific funding programme
Motoways of the seas

Results

Provides investment into LNG infrastructure & mobile equipment in Lithuania, Sweden and Estonia making available LNG as fuel for maritime and road transport. Blue Baltics deploys industrial solutions for ship-to-ship & shore-to-ship LNG bunkering as well as reloading in a group of ports. Thus, it promotes environmentally sustainable shipping and facilitates the
implementation of the SECA and MARPOL Annex VI regulations. As a wider benefit action it also includes dedicated
training programs for the involved ports and maritime operators ensuring safe operations of LNG.
