Hansalink 2

Background & policy context: 

The Action is part of a larger Global Project aiming at increasing capacity in the MoS link, mitigating climate change and maintaining an attractive maritime transport service for users.


The Action aims at updating an important maritime link between the German TEN-T core port Lübeck-Travemünde and the Finnish TEN-T core network port Helsinki, improving connectivity for the TEN-T Scandinavian-Mediterranean core network corridor.

The Action focuses on providing shore-side electricity as an alternative fuel for vessels while at berth, optimising the use of the existing terminals and improving IT and data documentation, data security and efficient communication.


To achieve the above-mentioned objectives, the following activities will be performed:

  • Installation of onshore power plants in each port with a minimum power output of 1.5 MW in order to reduce noise, air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions during port stays.
  • Port handling capacity improvement through digitalisation (3D-model of the terminal in Lübeck-Travemünde, implementation of new gates) and optimised gates processes including new gates (one-gate system in Helsinki)
  • Improving logistics chain processes by digitalising operative and administrative processes and promoting efficiency and data security.
