As part of a Global Project - the Nordic Maritime Link – the current Action aimed at increasing the multimodal attractiveness of the Nordic Maritime Link between continental Europe and Scandinavia. This has been achieved by integrating rail-based services with high-frequency, safe and green RoPax services on the maritime link.
In the long run, the Action will create a competitive and user-oriented link along the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Core Network Corridor, with cost-competitive pricing schemes and syncromodal optimised time-schedules compared to road-based alternatives.
The Action improved the operational capacity and safety of Port of Frederikshavn by dredging the port entrance to 200 metre wide; also the port fairway has been dredged to 150 metres in width and 11 metres in depth.
In the Elvsborgshamnen area of Port of Gothenburg the new Arken Core Rail-Road Terminal was also constructed. The Arken rail terminal is the new TEN-T Core Rail-Road Terminal in Gothenburg following the closing of the Rail-Road Terminal at Gullbergsvass.
Finally, a hybrid electric battery package was installed aboard Stena Jutlandica, replacing the auxiliary engine of the ro-pax ferry.
