Background & Policy context

This action is the second stage of a global project aiming at fostering greater cross-border cooperation between Finland and Estonia through developing and upgrading the MoS link between the ports of Helsinki and Tallinn and thus connecting the North Sea–Baltic to the Scandinavian-Mediterranean core network corridors. It follows the previous TEN-T funded Action TWIN-PORT (2012-EU-21011-P).


In the Port of Helsinki, the Action will include works to construct a new fast-flow terminal with passenger skyways and passenger gangways, upper deck ramps to the berths on both sides of the terminal, gate operations with check-in automation and traffic connections to the terminal.

In the Port of Tallinn, the Action includes works for the construction of a microtunnel in the Sadama street, an extension of terminal D, reconstruction of access to terminal A, the building of a connection between these two terminals as well as a Hazard and Operability Analysis HAZOP study for the Old City Harbour.

In addition, environmental and efficiency solution investments for a new generation RoPax ferry will be co-financed which will operate on this link.

These investments will significantly advance the Global Project of removing port bottlenecks, optimise port operations and further increase RoPax capacity by commissioning a new generation LNG RoPax vessel.
