This Action is part of a Global Project aiming at increasing the safety and efficiency of navigational operations through investment into the digitalisation of ports and fairways as well as the improvement of data transfer between ship and shore.
The results of these pilots, coupled with the introduction of these new technologies, will contribute to enhancing the safety of navigational operations, promoting the environmental compliance of vessels as well as increasing the cost-efficiency of marine operations.
This will be accomplished through the piloting of several studies in the Scandinavian–Mediterranean Core Network Corridor, namely in the Ports of Naantali and Stockholm. The following initiatives will be piloted in both ports:
- Digital service cloud and smart navigational aids in the form of smart buoys
- Alternative energy sources for smart navigational aids
- Sniffer buoys for monitoring of vessels SOX emissions
